This is the largest and most detailed encyclopaedic study ever produced of all the models of cars produced by British manufacturers in the period. Just over 700 individual models are covered in text entries totalling more than 250,000 words. Full specifications and performance figures are given, along with production numbers and dates. All the entries are illustrated with contemporary photographs from the archives - overall views, model variants, interiors, dashboards, engine bays, and cars rallying or racing. A wonderful range of photographs provides essential information and builds up a panoramic view of motoring and the development of the car in the post-war period. Compiled by Graham Robson, who has been writing about cars and the motor industry for over 40 years, and whose knowledge and accuracy are unchallenged, this A-Z is a vital reference work which supersedes all others.

Author Biography - Graham Robson
Graham Robson possesses a worldwide reputation as a motoring historian, and has been close to the sport of rallying for many years, as a competitor, team manager, organizer, reporter, commentator and observer; in more than forty years he has never lost touch with the sport. Not only has Graham competed in many British and European events, he's also reported on marathons in South America, and acted as a traveling controller in the legendary London-Mexico World Cup Rally. As a recognized authority on many aspects of classic cars and motoring of that period, he is the most prolific of all authors, with more than 130 published books to his credit. Over the years Graham has owned, driven, described and competed in many of the cars featured in the Rally Giants Series, and his insight to their merits is unmatched. Graham Robson lives and works in England.
