From Supercars such as the Bugatti Veyron to the luxury Bentley, Mercedes and BMW, this series looks at the most incredible cars in existence!

Top Marques: Racing Cars looks at the history of car racing, and at some of the speediest vehicles around, from the Mercedes AMG Petronas, the Dallara-Honda, the Chevrolet SS, the Audi R18, the Mini and the Chevrolet Cruze. It also looks at the most famous, and prestigious, car races in the world, from Formula 1 to Indycar, NASCAR and Le Mans.

A 'High Spec' panel on every spread details some of the jaw-dropping features of these cars, and a 'Fast and Furious' feature explains the basic science behind how prestige cars perform and are powered, such as G-force, combustion, friction, acceleration, and aerodynamics. Finally, discover amazing 'Turbo Facts' such as, for example, why a F1 car could drive on the ceiling!

Incredible, full-bleed photographs and punchy, fact-filled text make this the perfect series for all car fanatics aged 7 and above.

Racing cars are just some of the prestige cars around. Why not learn about more, in the other books in the series: Top Marques: Supercars , Top Marques: Luxury Cars and Top Marques: SUVs and Off-roaders .
