Everything around us is designed. Design has the ability to transform environments, bring about social change, improve our quality of life. It can be exciting or frivolous, bold or subtle, daring or loud. The car is no exception. For more than a century, the car has adapted and transformed, and has been a remarkably powerful catalyst for change. But how much do we actually know about it? "Fifty Cars That Changed the World" explores the top 50 cars that have made a substantial impact in the world of design today. These cars are icons, as sculptural objects, products of avant-garde industrialism, remarkable pieces of engineering, or as symbols of national prestige. The cars in this book demonstrate the playful, emotional, seductive and technical aspects of design. From the 1908 "Ford Model T" to the 1998 smart car, the "Lamborghini Miura" to the "Toyota Prius", this book encapsulates a century of car design, and allows you to explore the special place cars hold in design history.With stunning photography selected by the "Design Museum", "Fifty Cars that Changed the World" is the perfect gift for design lovers and motoring enthusiasts of all ages.
