Velocity by John Lamm
Book DescriptionThey're incredibly fast, they're incredibly beautiful, and they turn heads and set speed records with every incarnation. Velocity: Supercar Revolution is the first complete history of the supercar and tells the story behind the most desirable cars in the world. With stunning photographs, detailed text, and a host of commentaries from Jay Leno and other collectors, famed automotive photographer John Lamm provides an in-depth historical, cultural, and technological account of these amazing machines. Organized by decade and by top speed, the book details these luxurious cars over the past 40 years as they reached speeds of 170, 180, 190, and finally 200-plus miles per hour, the informal mark of today's supercar. Velocity: Supercar Revolution charts the evolution of the battle for engine supremacy and performance among the world's leading marques, including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Porsche, Aston Martin, Ford GT, among others. The book profiles the designers and engineers who developed these cars, and includes interviews with the racers and celebrities who drive them, and of course, fabulous photographs of the supercars themselves. Included in the book are several hilarious and informative commentaries by Jay Leno, the host of The Tonight Show and one of the best-known automotive collectors and enthusiasts in the world, telling stories and opinions on these cars (many of which he owns). Velocity: Supercar Revolution conveys as never before the power of automotive aesthetics and performance pushed to their absolute limits. It is a benchmark in automotive publishing and destined to become a classic history of these incredible marques.
