The definitive guide to the McLaren P1(tm), celebrating the launch of the McLaren P1(tm) GTR and detailing the high-tech aerodynamics and exquisite engineering McLaren has used to design and produce this dream car. The McLaren name is synonymous with high-performance supercars. The McLaren F1, launched in 1992, was considered the pinnacle of supercar production, and McLaren has now raised the bar yet again with the introduction of the groundbreaking McLaren P1(tm). Testament to the car's engineering excellence derived from 50 years of motorsport success, production of the McLaren P1(tm), limited to just 375 cars, was sold out in only three months, with each costing $1.15 Million. A track-only version, the McLaren P1(tm) GTR, was unveiled in 2014 and offered only to owners of the McLaren P1(tm). Ownership of the most extreme model ever produced by McLaren includes membership of the exclusive McLaren P1(tm) GTR Driver Programme. In this fascinating story of innovation and achievement, Andrew Frankel takes readers inside the McLaren Technology Centre to reveal how the company designed a hybrid racing machine that achieved unheard of efficiency on both the road and track. Frankel, who has been granted unprecedented access to the team behind the car, brings to life each step of its development, from engineering and testing to marketing, selling, and the customization of limited editions by the McLaren Special Operations team. Lavishly illustrated and engagingly written, this book reveals the inside story of the greatest supercar ever built.

This book focuses on the different aspects that contributed to the development of Northeast American sports car racing during the 1950s. The evolution from amateur drivers racing on public roads in 1950, to both professional and amateur drivers racing at private, purpose-built tracks in 1959, demanded huge leaps of faith, trust and understanding. The transition was neither easy nor uneventful for drivers, clubs or track owners, and the tragedy, politics and intrigue that came to characterise the period are covered here in fascinating detail.

Meant to commemorate 100 years of Maserati, this work covers the history of the marque in all its aspects and is divided into three large sections. The first, signed by Luca Dal Monte, deals with the company history and the marque's industrial matters: from the early years, when production was concentrated on racing cars, to the advent of the first GT of the immediate post-war period through to the great classics of the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies. The "Road cars and design" section by Lorenzo Ramaciotti, is specifically devoted to the Trident's road cars: from the A6 1500 to current production models, including the extraordinary expressions of design offered by models like the 3500 and 5000 GT, the various Quattroportes, the Mistral, Ghibli, Indy to then approach the present day, touching on the 3200 GT and the current Quattroporte, Granturismo and GranCabrio. Historic and modern pictures illustrate each of these models in a long photographic treatise, preceded by an introductory section which focuses on the historic matters associated with this vein of Maserati production. The last section written by Cesare De Agostini and Gianni Cancellieri is about races: from the outset Maserati's history has mainly been one of racing, from the pioneering era to the glorious Fifties, as much in Formula 1 with the 1957 world championship won by Juan Manuel Fangio, as endurance races, Maserati has expressed itself with success at the top levels of the sport. But even before that, the glorious marque had written unforgettable pages in the annals of racing, including victories at Indianapolis in 1939 and 1940. The recent success of the MC12 is the latest chapter in this proud history of achievement. There are also specific boxes in this section devoted to particular competitive aspects, such as the great road speed records (1926-1952) and the company's long experience in speedboat racing.
