The Classic Cars Book by René Staud

$1,075.00
An essential treat for car fans and collectors:
Legends of automobile history, valuable individual pieces and the most popular classic cars presented in a generous image format. New releases on the automobile market are primarily divided into categories such as performance or consumption. It's completely different with historic vehicles: At the important car shows from Pebble Beach to Villa d'Este, classic cars are shown that may not achieve top results in the wind tunnel, but whose timeless elegance makes the hearts of all enthusiasts beat faster. Photographer Ansel Adams, an honorary juror at Pebble Beach, once defined it as “the kind of vehicle I wanted to be buried in.”
From the Maserati Ghibli to the Ford Thunderbird, René Staud has showcased selected automobile classics, sometimes discreetly and sometimes spectacularly. Jürgen Lewandowski, co-organizer and head of the Car Selection Committee of the Schloss Bensberg Classics, provides knowledgeable texts. This combination conveys a passion for special vehicles like no other illustrated book of this kind.
