The 56th edition of this leading motoring annual from innovative new publisher Christian Philippsen will continue the same format and high standards of production and content that have been established over half a century. As before, the book will be clearly divided into three sections: firstly, Industry and Markets, which focuses on concept cars, design, new models, economy and markets. Next comes the Sport section, with details of the FIA championships including Formula 1, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the World Rally Championship and the World Touring Car Championship and lastly, the Culture section, which highlights various important events, auctions and automobile history. There are also some great new contributors and columnists, including Karl-Heinz Kalbfell (until recently CEO of Maserati and Alfa Romeo), Gordon Murray (who designed several championship winning McLarens), and Pierre Dupasquier (retired responsible for the racing department of Michelin).Packed with ever more stunning photographs this book remains an essential buy for the true motoring enthusiast.
