Literature on British Cars

Ladies and Gentlemen, valued customers,

lots of interesting new books on British cars came up the last weeks. We collected them in a newsletter on classical British cars, as we usually do. Literature about classical British vehicles is one of our favourite subjects.

But there are plenty of fish in the sea. So we would like to remind you that our book team is always looking forward to every request for repair instructions, operating instructions and technical literature on all brands and topics, be it British or continental.

Best regards

The Aston Martin Book
For the fiftieth anniversary of James Bond in 2012, two icons came together who jointly epitomize the very essence of British coolness. In Skyfall, Daniel Craig, as agent 007, powered across the screen in an Aston Martin DB5, the very same thrilling six-cylinder that Sean Connery drove in Goldfinger. Meanwhile, Aston Martin has celebrated a milestone birthday. In the century since it was founded by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin on January 13, 1913, the house has created a portfolio that ranges from the Le Mans-winning DB2 to 2013's Vanquish.

Original MGB with MGC and MGB GT V8
The MGB, the epitome of the classic British sports car, has attracted a huge following throughout the world because of its down-to-earth blend of clean looks, reasonable performance, good practicality and decent road manners.

It went on to become the all-time best-selling British sports car, its appeal broadenings with the arrival of a fixed-head GT version in 1965, the six-cylinder MGC in 1967, and the MGB GT V8 in 1973. And today, with classic status assured, the MGB remains as popular as ever.

Mr Big Healey
This is the authorised biography of one of the best-liked bad boys in British motorsport. John Chatham, driver, racer, repairer, rebuilder, tuner, trader and lover of Austin-Healeys, was in the words of Geoffrey Healey "uncontrollable" in his youth, and has only mildly mellowed with age. Burly and genial but formidably competitive, and not above bending the rules when he thought he could get away with it, to many he is the archetypal club racer. John is so synonymous with Austin-Healeys that the most famous racing Healey in the world, DD300, is so well-known mainly because John campaigned it for decades, notching up tens of thousands of racing miles. But his career embraces far more than one car, and until this biography no-one had attempted to fill in the gaps.
