This collection of four volumes brings together 250 car anthology models, amongst those the Citroën 2CV and the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost[1]. The book presents an annotated illustration of each model, taken in five angles, giving life to every part of the vehicle. All specifications of it are also shown, including speed, acceleration, weight, dimensions, etc. This volume covers cars from P-Z. A must-read for all lovers of automotive history.[1] Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost: In 1907 Claude Johnson, Commercial and Managing Director of Rolls-Royce, ordered a car to be used as a demonstrator by the company. With chassis no. 60551 and registered AX 201, it was the 12th 40/50 hp to be made, and was painted in aluminium paint with silver-plated fittings. The car was named the "Silver Ghost" to emphasise its ghost-like quietness, and a plaque bearing this name adorned the bulkhead. An open-top Roi-des-Belges body by coachbuilder Barker was fitted, and the car readied for the Scottish reliability trials of 1907 and, immediately afterwards, another 15,000-mile test which included driving between London and Glasgow 27 times.THIS BOOK IS IN FRENCH.
