Twenty-Four Classic Cars that Shaped a Century of Motor Sport, very numerous illustrations from colour photographs, specification tables for each car, Silverstone circuit diagram and comparative performance tables, audio CD in card pocket inside front cover, 208 pp, pictorial glazed boards in d/w, slight creasing to top edge of d/w, otherwise in very good condition, Carlton Books 2010

26 x 25.3 cm, 1300g, ISBN 978 1 84732 639 3

A revised and enlarged edition of a book originally published in 1998 under the title ‘Into the Red’.  Unlike most copies of this book offered for sale, the CD is present.  The sound of the BRM V16 is probably worth the price of the book . . . . !

The other four cars driven but not listed on the CD pocket (below) are the 1935 Aston Martin Ulster, the 1949 Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica, the 1959 Maserati T61 Birdcage and the 1989 Ferrari F40.

See below the descriptions from the dustwrapper flap and from the rear of the dustwrapper.

The book is now out of print.

As the publisher used heavyweight paper to to better reproduce the photographs, it would cost a good deal to send the book abroad.  If you are outside the U.K. and are thinking about buying it, please email us first on and we will quote a price for postage.
