Author Biography - Tony Davis
Tony Davis has worked as a book author, publisher, magazine editor and newspaper writer. He has written about cars, on and off, for nearly thirty years. He has driven some of the fastest, most expensive and most impressive vehicles ever built, yet retains a bizarre fascination with those at the other end of the spectrum, those created by designers and engineers who, as he puts it, 'think a tour de force is a bicycle race'.
