These are the cars so fast and powerful, so superior in design and performance that they could only be called supercars.

Since British motoring journalist L. J. K. Setright christened the first supercar, the Lamborghini Miura, others have followed creating legendary marques such as Bugatti, Porsche, McLaren, Maserati, Ferrari and many more.

These are the supercars profiled in this fascinating, yet factual book. Covering 79 Supercars with over 200 multiple view colour photographs to illustrate them, this book is a great way to familiarise yourself with the cars you've heard about but have never seen. Detailed descriptions are given along with performance specs and interesting background information on each car's development.

Historic classics including the Jaguar XJ220 and the original Ford GT40 as well as the more recent models of supercar for example the Audi R8 and Vector Avtech WX8 make this book accessible to all. On top of this, the latest breakthroughs in design and technology make this exhilarating survey of the supercar a thrill for any high-performance car enthusiast.
