Encyclopaedia Britalicar: The Story of British Cars & Italian Design

Celebrating the rich, deep partnership between the British car industry and Italian design, this book is packed with coachbuilt cars, design classics and concept cars from the 1920s to the current day. The story starts with the early days of coachbuilt cars on separate chassis from illustrious marques like Bentley, Frazer Nash and Rolls-Royce, which were bodied by such Italian coachbuilders as Pinin Farina, Viotti and Zagato.
After World War Two came the golden era of coachbuilt cars, with Italian companies creating some of the world's most beautiful shapes of all time on chassis from the likes of Aston Martin, Austin-Healey, Bristol, Jaguar, Jowett, MG, Riley and Rover.

Then came the era when Italian carrozzerie morphed into design houses, penning shapes for mass-produced cars like the BMC 1100/1300 and Triumph Herald, and crafting what are widely recognised to be some of the world's most beautiful cars, such as the Aston Martin DB4, AC 428 and Lotus Esprit.
Finally came the era of the 'concept car', with incredible show designs based on British marques such as Jaguars by Bertone, the BMC 1800 Berlina Aerodinamica by Pininfarina and Lotus by Italdesign.
This book reveals the full stories behind the intense, diverse, sometimes surprising and always fascinating links between British cars and Italian design: the characters, the deals, the designs and above all the cars themselves.

British marques included: AC, Armstrong-Siddeley, Aston Martin, Austin, Austin-Healey, Bentley, BL/BLMC/BMC, Bristol, Daimler, DeLorean, Elva, Ferguson, Ford, Frazer Nash, Frisky, Gordon-Keeble, Healey, Hillman, Innocenti, Jaguar, Jensen, Jowett, Lea-Francis, Lola, Lotus, MG, Mini, Morris, Panther, Reliant, Riley, Rolls-Royce, Rover, Singer, Sunbeam, Standard, Triumph, TVR, Vauxhall, Vanden Plas, Wolseley

Italian coachbuilders included: Allemano, Ares, Bertone, Biemme, Boano, Boneschi, Boniolo, Breuer, Casale, Castagna, Cattelan, CECOMP, Coggiola, Drogo, F&F, Fiore, Fissore, Ford Centro Stile, Francis Lombardi, Frua, FT, Garavini, Ghia, Ghia-Aigle, I.DE.A, Indestor, Italdesign, Italsuisse, Michelotti, Monviso, Motto, Opac, OSI, Pilato, Pinin Farina/Pininfarina, Schiaretti, Sibona-Basano, Sports Cars, Stabilimenti Farina, Tjaarda, Touring, Vignale, Viotti, Zagato

British Sports Cars

NEU

Britain has been responsible for some of the greatest and most varied sports cars ever built - the 'Blower' Bentleys of the 1920s, diminutive MGs of the 1930s, glamorous Jaguar E-types and Aston Martin DB5s of the 1960s, and beyond that the jaw-dropping Lotuses and McLarens of more recent times.

This book charts the rich history of the UK's most magnificent high-performance machines, from their primitive, pioneering days through today's technologically advanced modern sports cars. Taking in some of the most admired and sought after cars ever created, it aims to show how, over nearly 140 years, these exciting, and sometimes extraordinary, vehicles developed. The author explores how speeds have risen, handling has been enhanced, styles have evolved and sophistication has increased.
Illustrated with over 180 pictures, this fascinating story of the ups and downs of the world's love affair with Britain's sports cars is almost as dramatic and dynamic as the machines themselves.

British Specialist Cars, Specials & Kits 1945-1960 : Definitive A-Z Encylopaedia of Low-Volume British Sports Cars

Following World War 2, private car manufacturers were in ruins and austerity reigned. Invention follows necessity and an era of ingenuity and rebirth blossomed. With car ownership still an unreachable dream for many, the notion of buying your own sports car seemed way out of reach.
Yet a new industry quickly sprang up, building sports cars that enthusiasts craved. This was a time when a chassis and glassfibre body could be bought for the price of a cheap second-hand banger. Home builders could now create their own 'specials', either from scratch or using kits of parts - a major new innovation.

This fascinating and meticulously researched book tells the story of the post-war British specialist car industry and the birth of the kit car movement from 1945 on. As well as familiar names like Lotus, TVR and Ginetta, this book features pioneers like Buckler, RGS and Rochdale, plus dozens of obscure makes and models which have never been seen in a book before.

The full list of marques covered (73 makes and 156 different models) is: AKS, Ashley, Astra, Auto Bodies, Bonglass, Bowden, Brookes, Brooks, Buckler, Buroche, Cambridge, Concord, Convair, Conversion/Naco, CRS, CSC, Dante, Dellow, Delta, Dolphin, EB, Elva, Fairlite, Fairthorpe, Falcon, Fibrous, Frisky, Galt-Glass, Gilbern, Ginetta, GSM, Halifax, Hamblin, Hepworth, Heron, HG, Kenmar/Shirley, Leonard, Littabourne, LMB, Lockwood, Lotus, Marcos, Markham-Peasey, Martin, Microplas, Nickri, Nobel, Nordec, Opperman, Peel, Rejo, RGS, Rochdale, Speedex, Speedy, Super, Terrier, Tornado, Townend, Turner, TVR, TWM, Universal, Versil, Victory, Vixen, VW, Watford, Watling and Weslite. Numerous one-offs and specials are also illustrated.

Taxis anglais

Comme les bus à impériale, les cabines téléphoniques rouges ou les tailleurs pastels de la Reine, le taxi anglais est une icône incontestée de la Grande-Bretagne et de sa capitale. Beaucoup d'entre nous se rappellent en avoir vu dans un film, un clip de leur groupe musical préféré ou gardé en mémoire après un voyage scolaire outre-Manche.

Ce livre raconte l'histoire de ce véhicule si attachant au travers des nombreux modèles qui se sont succédé de la fin du XIXe jusqu'à nos jours et au-delà, ses aspects techniques, sociologiques, son intérêt, son influence, etc. Illustré de nombreux documents, et accompagné d'anecdotes amusantes ou surprenantes, ce livre séduira autant l'amateur de véhicules anglais, de collection, d'autos anciennes ou atypiques que le néophyte ou simple curieux désireux d'en apprendre davantage sur les "black cabs".

Anglo-American Cars - From the 1930s to the 1970s

This book covers British cars powered by American engines and American cars fitted with British power plants, all built from the 1930s to 1970s. Many of the American-powered British makes offered for sale were often built with everything from trials and rallies to road racing in mind.

For enthusiasts, the American V8 in a British chassis provided fast, reliable touring at a fraction of the cost. In contrast, the American cars fitted with British power plants were often designed with economy in mind.

Brochures, period literature, road test info of the day, factory press kits and over sixty colour photos of restored examples provide detailed shots of the engines and styling that set these Anglo-American cars apart. Decade by decade information allows for direct comparison.

Police Stop! - Patrol and Response Vehicles in England and Wales

Cars and vans in high-vis livery, racing to incidents with pulsating lights and blaring sirens are part of the everyday scene in our towns and on our highways.
This book outlines the fascinating story of vehicles in police service, and shows how police forces have always had to react to society's changes, particularly the growth of motor transport.
It explains how the enlargement of the police fleet came from a variety of causes including two world wars, developments in communications, shortage of manpower, new towns and the building of the motorway network.

Illustrations, many in full colour, show a progression from the time when the first police used horses and rowing boats, through the years of black and dark blue vehicles to a colourful era which saw police patrol cars and vans carry an extraordinary range of individual and generally attractive liveries, now all superseded but grouped, identified and compared here for the first time.

Readers who perhaps remember only their local schemes may be amazed to see the variety which was to be found across the two nations - and enjoy a parade of vehicles which ruled the road in their heyday yet so quickly have become memory.
Fasten your seat belts. Let's book on and pursue an intriguing story!

Modern British Ambulances

The ambulance service uses a lot of specialised vehicles in the day-to-day role of providing emergency care, routine transport and emergency response. They range from the specially constructed ambulance bodies on commercial chassis to small car conversions. This collection of images show the range of different types of ambulances used in Britain in the twenty-first century.

As well as showing front line ambulances used by the NHS, voluntary aid societies, private ambulances, works ambulances and air ambulances all feature. Alongside all the services the different vehicle marques and coach builders are shown. Each photo shows a particular type of ambulance and, wherever possible, which company provided the conversion to an ambulance.

These show the changes over the past few years both in the boundary of ambulance services, as well as the design of ambulances that are used in Britain as they undertake their vital lifesaving work.

Traction for Sale : The Story of Ferguson Formula Four-Wheel Drive

The Ferguson name is as important in the field of four-wheel drive as it is in tractor development. This is the story of the research and development behind it and the struggle to get that technology accepted as comprehensively as it is today.

But more than technology itself, "Traction for Sale" tells the story of the men behind it; Fred Dixon, who first though of the idea of a super-safe family car with four-wheel drive, Harry Ferguson, who gave his name and the full weight of his fortune and dedication to it and Tony Rolt, whose unfaltering drive and conviction made it all happen.

Then there were teams of brilliant engineers and mechanics, working at the cutting edge of automotive development. Featured are the stories of Ferguson's fasciating research cars, including the Ferguson-Climax grand prix car, the most famous cars that use Ferguson Formula four-wheel drive, including the Jensen FF, the Indianapolis and Formula One race cars and its systems that use its most important component, the Viscous Control Unit.

This includes the most prominent Group B rally cars and their successors, Ford's Sierra and Scorpio 4x4, many Jeep models, later Range Rovers and Audi quattros and the Jaguar X-Type as well as those for which FFD supplied essential transmission components, the McLaren F1 and Jaguar XJ220 supercars, and family car makers Mazda and Volkswagen.
