Contents: Brief descriptions and specifications, and a photograph for each of 500 sometimes beautiful, sometimes bizarre concepts. Concepts for all tastes - some of the cars featured project themselves radically into the avant-garde, whilst others are designed to have more commercial appeal. A panoramic vision of many of the prototypes developed during the first half of the 20th Century up to 1952. A selection of eight significant models a year, from 1952, chosen at random. An in-depth look at a particular project that captured the mood of the day, for every other year from 1952 to 2002.
Other Titles: Five hundred fantastic cars
Responsibility: Serge Bellu ; [translated into English by Jon Pressnell].
