||The giants of the sports-car world are well-represented with sections covering
such world-beating models as the Ferrari 330 P4 and 312P, the Ford GT40 and
its descendents, and the Porsche 908 and 917. But the book also addresses
prototypes built by new challengers like Chaparral, Lola, and Matra, who often
used innovation and experimentation to level the playing field against the larger
manufacturers. Along with the prototypes there are also cars built to compete
in the GT classes and specialized events such as hillclimbs.
Details: Legendary Sports Cars Up Close, 1965-1969 presents its
subjects in chronological order, staring with the Abarth OT Sport Spider in 1965
and concluding with the first generation Porsche 917 in 1969. The
photographs, drawn largely from the McKlein motor racing archive, show cars
under construction at the factory, revealing rarely-seen details of engine
compartments, suspensions, bodywork and other key components. But there
are also plenty of images that capture cars in action on the track and being
prepared or serviced in the pits.
Details: Legendary Sports Cars Up Close, 1965-1969 is a full-color, 12”
x 12” deluxe hardcover presented in a green slipcase featuring a Porsche 917.
David Bull Publishing is proud to partner with Germany’s McKlein Publishing to
market this unique and revealing book. Text in English and German.
