Apollo VII–XVII

by Bernard King

It was the most expensive production car in the world. It was the most British of cars—designed by the most Italian of coachbuilders. It went from clean sheet to 1:1 prototype in under three months. A mere 534 were built in 12 years. Never heard of it? Well, there’s a story.

Deutscher Automobil-Rennsport 1946–1955

by Reinald Schumann

Zero-Hour means the immediate postwar years, the years in which war-ravaged Germany clawed its way back into the civilized—and mechanized—world. A-racing we must go!

Probably the most thorough book to date, with hundreds of photos, many of which new to the record.
