[This book] features nearly 50 classic sports and race cars from
the 20th century. The book, done in collaboration with auction
house Bonhams, starts with a 1902 De Dietrich, which had a
four-seater body that could be converted to a racing two-seater,
and ends with a 1997 McLaren F1 GTR, which has gold insulating foil
around the engine bay to ensure optimal heat containment and can
hit 240 mph.
