Powerful symbols of style, wealth and prestige, cars are more than just a form of transportation. They are cultural artefacts that represent the design aesthetic of their place and time. Columnist and cultural critic Stephen Bayley has elegantly put to print the histories of 86 cars that "changed conventional wisdom, lifted the game, raised the bar." These are the vehicles that marked a generation and inspired a lifetime commitment to their appreciation. At 384 pages, bound in suede and fully loaded with massive and gorgeous photographs, CARS will transport the 50-year-old back to the machines they rode in, drove and admired.
