Bizarre Cars The Strangest Vehicles of All Time by Keith Ray

cover photo

Paperback (150mm X 180mm)

This book is dedicated to a select group of designers and marketing people round the world who, in blissful ignorance of the meaning of 'fit for purpose', came up with vehicles so totally bizarre, ugly or inappropriate (in some cases all at once) that they must be recorded for posterity. Some people have designed deliberately bizarre cars, for example Ed China's double- bed car and garden shed car...or cars made to look like oranges or coke bottles. What distinguishes them from the vehicles in this book is that, amazingly, all these cars here were meant to be serious offerings to the motoring public. From the Lancia Thema 8.32; hideously fast and very expensive, for some reason built to look exactly the same as the bog-standard Thema, to the Russian ZIS 101 Sport, based on a limousine and the longest two-seater sports car of all time, the cars in this book will raise a smile and few eyebrows!
