I was very pleased when this colourful tome thumped on to my doormat. I was one of a team of 13 writers bashing out sections, including Sue Baker and General Editor Simon Heptinstall who put the whole thing together. I thought I'd have to buy one.
I did about 40 entries – you can spot them from my initials. I remember they included some Hummers, the Maybach 62, Morgan Aero 8 and Renault Avantime - oh yes, and the Mazda MX-5. I fought to get the Ford Streetka to make sure no horrible male journalist was mean about it.
I should point out I don't get royalties before saying it looks very good - a perfect Christmas present for that difficult uncle/nephew. I actually think you could die happy without driving a lot of these (Kia C'eed?) but it's a fun book to dip in and out of. Lots of lovely pics sourced by Giles Chapman.
If you have any complaints about cars you feel absolutely should or shouldn't have been listed, feel free to rant on the comments form.
