nube­sar­gen­tea.com, ISBN 978 8 8909 5718 5 What seems like an in­cred­i­bly spe­cific sub­ject study at an enor­mous price turns out to be a sump­tu­ous jour­ney through five decades of mo­tor show theatre.

Mar­que au­thor­ity Da­vide Bas­soli nat­u­rally keeps the fo­cus on Crick­le­wood and Crewe, but it’s not just each ma­jor new model that’s de­tailed. Each Earls Court floor­plan has been un­earthed and pho­to­graphs of ev­ery model – plus can­did shots with vis­it­ing celebrity cus­tomers – have been re­pro­duced. Ev­ery coach­built vari­a­tion has been de­tailed. An in­tox­i­cat­ing im­mer­sion.
