Ever heard of the Volkhart Sagitta? L'OEuf électrique or the Stanley Steamer? If not, you are in for a beautiful surprise, 50 times over!
Often times the cars in this richly illustrated book were lost because the manufacturer ceased to exist, or because they were found on the bottom of Lake Maggiore after 75 years like the Bugatti Brescia. Among the 50 beauties there are one-offs, concepts, trendsetters, and failures as well as cars of the rich and famous, from Marilyn Monroe to Clark Gable.
