Jeremy Clarkson invites us to Motorworld, his take on different cultures and the cars that they drive. There are ways and means of getting about that don't involve four wheels, but in this slice of vintage Clarkson, Jeremy isn't much interested in them. Back in 1996, he took himself off to twelve countries (okay, eleven - he goes to America twice) in search of the hows, whys and wherefores of different nationalities and their relationships with cars. There were a few questions he needed answers to: • Why, for instance, is it that Italians are more interested in looking good than looking where they are going? • Why do Indians crash a lot? • How can an Arab describe himself as 'not a rich man' with four of the world's most expensive cars in his drive? • And why have the otherwise neutral Swiss declared war on the car? From Cuba to Iceland, Australia to Vietnam, Japan to Texas, Jeremy Clarkson tells us of his adventures on and off four wheels as he seeks to discover just what it is that makes our motorworld tick over. Praise for Jeremy Clarkson: 'Brilliant . . . laugh-out-loud' Daily Telegraph 'Outrageously funny . . . will have you in stitches' Time Out Number-one bestseller Jeremy Clarkson writes on cars, current affairs and anything else that annoys him in his sharp and funny collections.

Immerse yourself in this complete guide on Lamborghini's ultimate performance cars. Nearly 50 years ago, upstart high-end sports car manufacturer Lamborghini set the performance car world on its ear with its stunning supercar, the Miura. Wrapped in a svelte Marcello Gandini - designed body and powered by a 350-horsepower V-12, the Miura instantly made every other car look antiquated. In 1974, Lamborghini again shocked the automotive world with the mad Countach (an Italian expression one might utter at the sight of a beautiful woman), another Gandini masterpiece. Wide, low, and menacing, the original Countach completely recalibrated the supercar template. The Diablo replaced the Countach in 1990 and was the last of the Lamborghini supercars under the auspices of the "original" company. Audi acquired the company in 1997 and would bring significant German efficiency to bear, turning out supercars to a new template: the Murielago in 2001, the Gallardo in 2003, the Reventon in 2008, the Aventador in 2011, and, most recently, the appropriately named Huracan. Each one is an ultimate car. Many were collector vehicles from the moment they rolled off the production line. Beneath their stunning bodywork lie chassis and powerplants bristling with the best technology of their respective eras. Lamborghini's latest supercars zip from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 3 seconds and hit top speeds in excess of 220 miles per hour. Their prices are equally staggering. Lamborghini Supercars 50 Years is devoted exclusively to all of Lamborghini's ultimate performance cars. No enthusiast of these world-class sports cars will want to miss it!

* A beautifully illustrated history of the infamous Nürburgring race trackThe Nürburgring race track, located in Nürburg, Germany, is a Grand Prix track, built in 1984, coupled with a much longer 'North Loop' track built in the 1920s. Nicknamed 'The Green Hell' by Jackie Stewart following his victory in the 1968 Grand Prix, the race track has been a source of endless fascination for anyone involved in or following motorsports - partly because of its history and partly because of the challenge it provides. Notoriously unforgiving and difficult, the track was the location of Niki Lauda's horrific crash during the 1976 German Grand Prix.The official book of the Nürburgring GmbH jubilee, and published alongside the release of a film, 90 Years of Nürburgring offers an insight into the track that's never been shown before. Author Hartmut Lehbrink has interviewed race drivers to capture the history and raw emotion of Nürburgring. Beautifully illustrated, this is an absolute must for all those with even just a passing interest in motorsports.
