From the cover: “This is the second, entirely new edition of the phenomenally successful annual guide to all the new production and concept cars unveiled during the twelve months leading up to the book’s publication. An easily navigated A-Z of all the latest models from around the world, this book engagingly describes and illustrates 110 cars, highlighting their key stylistic features and innovations. Each vehicle is brought vividly to life in a series of stunning photographs and original renderings, showing exterior and interior design features, the vehicle’s stylistic development, and its technical layout — over 800 colour illustrations in all. Available technical data for every car is also provided.
Written with the passion and detailed knowledge that only an industry insider could bring to the subject, the book begins with a brief introduction that provides an overview of all the models featured, pointing to the key trends in the styling of cars today. Also featured in this edition are profiles of three of the year’s leading designers and an overview of the design process; an appraisal of the design, marketing, and business objectives of the concept car; and an examination of the new breed of exotic luxury vehicles. There is also a comprehensive glossary of technical terms and detailed information on all the motor shows being held between September 2003 and October 2004. The Car Design Yearbook remains the most comprehensive annual reference to the latest trends in car design worldwide ever published. No one interested in cars — whether as an industry insider or a car enthusiast — can afford to be without this definitive guide.”
