Series I, II, IIA & III
There has rarely been a British success story like the Land-Rover. Developed in a short time and on a small budget, it was launched in 1948 and having passed though many revisions is still a world leader today. The Series detailed in this book take us from the beginning to 1985, and the many surviving examples, supported by a comprehensive parts and restoration industry, are seeing a solid increase in values. Here James Taylor, the premier historian of the marque, provides a detailed study of the Land-Rover's evolution through the period and the variants and special-purpose versions that were produced. Uniquely, it is the manufacturer's own sales brochures and advertising that supply the illustrations, which number some 400 and serve not only to correctly depict the vehicles but also to re-create the atmosphere of the times when they were made.
Supercharged Mercedes In Detail
1923 - 1942
Among the rarest and most exciting classic cars are the supercharged Mercedes cars of the 1920s and 1930s, exemplified by the fire-breathing S, SS, SSK and SSKL models with their supercharged 7-litre engines, and the exceedingly glamorous, though softer and less stark, 500K and 540K cars which succeeded them in the mid-1930s. There were other models too, going back to 1923 and on to the construction of the last mighty 770K in 1942. All of them, and the long, pioneering history of supercharging by Mercedes, are described here, including the cars designed by Ferdinand Porsche between 1924 and 1928 and the road-racing exploits of star drivers like Rudolf Carracciola. With 100 color photographs of surviving examples, and 150 black-and-white pictures from the archives, this book tells all about a remarkable family of motor cars, rarely ever seen yet universally admired.
