Default Top Gear: The Cool 500



Quote:
If your a car guy, clear some room on your coffee table because you have a new book to purchase. The guys over at Top Gear have just released The Cool 500: The Coolest Cars Ever Made, and it’s pretty epic. Digging through the entire history of the automobile, Top Gear has selected rides like James Dean’s Porsche Spyder, the Bentley Brookends, and Steve McQueen’s classic Mustang to include in this ultimate list. The book features awesome shots of the cars and the standard dose of knowledge Top Gear is known for providing. Basically, it’s a must read.

Would look good on a coffee table.

I must find this book. If they have at least a Subaru and the GT-86 in there, I'm happy!

Thanks. I meant locally. I still enjoy holding a physical copy of a book before purchasing it. Get that "new book" smell! Mmmm!

Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car reviewed it last month and gave it faint praise, said it was too Eurocentric and lacked technical specs. Can't find that review online at the moment.

I"d rather it b eurocentric than US centric...

basically you only need 2 of each (1old, 1 new) of the Vette, Camaro and Stang on the list. that would b it for muscle cars on that list for me...

Hemmings isn't relevant to people under 85 years old.

I am well under 85 thankyouverymuch.

What Hemmings isn't relevant to is people who don't own little British sports cars, which makes me wonder why I bother reading it.

I guess technically 10% below 85 qualifies as well below

It just got delivered today from amazon. It seems like theres way more than 500 cars.

Defiantly a nice coffee table book.

There is no specs as mentioned before. It is fairly Eurocentric (its top gear though so I can forgive). Some of the pictures don't give that good of a view.
Theres just a slight blurb for each car. No toyobaru.

The chevelle isnt that great. But you missed: GT40, Shelby Cobra, Shelby Daytona, Viper, Hennessey VenomGT? Thats all I can think of right now. I am however not partial to American cars, I prefer imports over domestics.

Meanwhile, there will be no fewer than a 100 vaguely different Jaguars and Land Rovers in it - most that you've never heard of.

Thanks. I'm not THAT much into a variety of cars to appreciate such a volume as this being added to my collection then.

Fair enough. The Gt40 is one of my all time faves, the updated GT too. And yes the Viper is iconic too. Hell I'll even give u the Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am on the list too. Very cool.

But that's all folks.
