Description:

Showcasing the inherent beauty and engineering brilliance of F1 race cars, this book highlights these magnificent machines as the works of art they are. The specially commissioned studio photographs capture the mix of competition, creativity, aggression, human ingenuity, technological advances, and painstaking detail in each model shown. Coupled with a history and technical profile written by noted F1 journalist Stuart Codling, and commentary from award-winning designer Gordon Murray, this book is the ultimate homage to the ultimate in race cars.


Review:

"I think there is little doubt that any F1 fan - or any motorsport fan, for that matter, and perhaps a wider swath than that - will enjoy this book. It's more than worth checking out." - Formula1Blog.com "April 12, 2010 will see another coffee table book on Formula One. This desirable new entry from Motorbooks International, Art of the Formula 1 Race Car, features studio photographs of some of the most significant cars of the post war championship era. The photos serve to make the book gorgeous, the words that accompany James Mann's photos, plus archive photos from LAT and teams, are from Stuart Codling. Codling has covered Grand Prix racing for over a decade and was picked by Peter Windsor for the book when Windsor couldn't accept the assignment. Gordon Murray adds his own perspective with comments on the cars selected for the book. Murray worked on and designed several so his knowledge is first hand. This is a book destined for the libraries of any true motorsports fan, not just those who love Grand Prix racing. Not every great development started with a great team. You may be surprised where some ideas started. Look for the Art of the Formula 1 Race Car at your local book seller. You'll be glad you bought it." - MotorSportsForum.com
