Alle Autos der 80er Jahre - 231 PKW-Marken aus 40 Ländern

Einmal mehr ein einzigartiger Band aus der Feder von Roger Gloor, dem Chronisten der automobilen Weltproduktion nach 1945. Sein neuer Band bietet den kompletten Überblick über alle Autos der 80er Jahre - alle Marken, alle Länder, alle Typen, die insbesondere im Europa der Vor-Abwrackprämien-Zeit im Straßenbild allgegenwärtig waren.

Der Autor weckt aber nicht einfach nur Erinnerungen an einstige Traumautos, er schildert auch kenntnisreich und detailliert Geschichte und Technik und zeichnet die großen Entwicklungsströmungen der Automobilgeschichte in jenem Jahrzehnt nach - so, wie er auch die herausragenden Persönlichkeiten jener Ära porträtiert.

Génération 80 en 80 voitures

À la fois si proches et si lointaines, les années 1980 sont synonymes de progrès pour l'automobile : ABS, quatre roues motrices, aérodynamique et airbag. Ce livre parcourt cette décennie à la fois douce et violente au volant des modèles phares de cette époque. Il la traverse également à travers son actualité marquée par un vent de liberté qui souffle à l'Est ou de révolte en Chine, les années Tonton, Noah, Prost, Balavoine, Tapie et Paul-Loup Sulitzer, Caroline de Monaco, et Dallas et son univers impitoyable.

Une invitation à bord de 24 voitures des années 1980. Des autos que vous avez peut-être possédées ou qui vous ont fait rêver. Des modèles emblématiques comme les Porsche Carrera, Alpine et Renault 5 Turbo à d'autres plus populaires telles les 2 CV Charleston, Renault 4, Visa, Fiat Panda, ou plus sportives à l'instar des 205 GTi, Renault 5 Turbo, Golf GTI, Delta Intégrale.
Un voyage passionnant sur les routes des années 1980 encore bordées de nombreuses stations-service, vierges de ronds-points et de ralentisseurs, et de radars fixes.

Cars We Loved in the 1980s

It was brash and it was loud - the 1980s put paid to the glumness of the '70s and nowhere was that more obvious than in the cars we drove, which took a quantum leap in durability, performance, equipment and style. They had to: Japanese quality and European design were luring away ever more customers. Features such as fuel injection, turbochargers, computer-controlled systems and four-wheel drive became commonplace.

This was also the decade that brought us the people-carrier and the off-roader, new classes of car that radically reshaped family transport. Meanwhile, seatbelt-wearing became law, the M25 opened, speed cameras appeared and ram-raiding was the new motoring nemesis. Relive everything car-related in Britain in the 1980s with Giles Chapman.

Les voitures emblémentiques des années 1980

La décennie 80 constitue un tournant dans l'évolution de l'automobile sur la lancée des frémissements technologiques amorcés à partir de 1975. On assiste à un renforcement de la robotisation des chaînes de production dans les usines et à l'amplification d'un marché concurrentiel fortement impacté par la mondialisation. Les marques japonaises poursuivent leur pénétration des marchés européens et américains.

En Europe l'Allemagne, la France et l'Italie occupent une part importante du marché et les majors compagnies déploient une politique d'internationalisation de la production complétée par une volonté de regroupement en fusionnant ou en rachetant des constructeurs moins importants pour diminuer les coûts.
