Inside dj states "In no other country in the world is there to be found a wider variety of makes and models of car than in Britain. And, outstanding for their individuality against a background of mass-production uniformity, are the extraordinary range of limited-production sports cars which are the subject of this book. Of the 120 models of 37 different marques here featured, some were produced in their hundreds while others never achieved more than single figures. All road cars, they range from the exotic Elva/BMWGT to the popular little Mini-sprint conversion, from the TV R Tuscan V8, capable of 170mph and costing several thousands of pounds, to inexpensive 'do it yourself' kit assemblies based on a standard chassis. Included, too, are details and photographs of previously near-secret cars, such as the Ginetta G2D, the mid-engined Gilbern and the Healey and Lotus Elan prototypes. The period covered extends from 1947 to the present day and basic histories and technical details are supplemented by hitherto unpublished information about the personalities behind the projects and the reasons why so many promisinig cars failed to stay in production. The first to deal solely with these rare and unusual cars, this book fills an important gap in automobile history and should appeal to car connoisseurs everywhere, not least in the USA, where British 'specials' have long had an enthusiastic following."
