This instalment in Evro’s decade-by-decade series covering all Formula 1 cars and teams is devoted to a period when some normality seemed to return after the ground-effect and turbo excesses of the 1980s, except for one terrible weekend in the spring of 1994. The tragic deaths of Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna led to immense change with new emphasis on safety, including measures to slow down the cars and improve their structural strength, and numerous changes to circuits. In many ways Formula 1 became more as we recognise it today, especially as the decade’s dominant teams, McLaren and Williams, remain familiar.
- Year-by-year treatment explores each season in fascinating depth, running through the teams — and their various cars — in order of importance.
- McLaren: success for this team bookended the decade, delivering back-to-back titles for both Ayrton Senna (1990–91 with Honda engines) and Mika Häkkinen (1998–99 with Mercedes engines).
- Williams: as with McLaren, Renault-powered Williams cars brought four World Championship driver titles, for Nigel Mansell (1992), Alain Prost (1993), Damon Hill (1996) and Jacques Villeneuve (1997).
- Benetton: mid-decade, this British-based team won two titles for a sensational new talent, Michael Schumacher, powered by Ford in 1994 and by Renault in 1995.
- Ferrari: the longest-established marque, a participant in the World Championship ever since its inception in 1950, concluded a lean decade on an upbeat — and prescient — note by becoming 1999 Constructors’ Champions, with six Grand Prix wins that year.
- Other winning marques were few and far between, just Ligier (1996), Jordan (1998–99) and Stewart (1999).
- Besides the winning cars, there is always much fascination for fans in unsuccessful and obscure efforts, such as Andrea Moda and Venturi.

Modifying the Electronics of Modern Classic Cars is the complete guide to modifying the electronics of your modern classic car.
Cars of the 1990s and 2000s have sufficient electronic systems to achieve great outcomes, but they’re not so complex that they’re impossible to modify. The missing link, until now, has been a hands-on manual on how to achieve those results. Well, here it is!
This book covers everything from cheap modifications that allow you to adjust engine fueling and ignition timing, to modifying car systems like power steering and even stability control. Easy upgrades to lighting, sound systems and the dashboard – right through to fitting and tuning programmable engine management. Photos and circuit diagrams guide you each step of the way.
All the car modifications are practical, and have been tried and tested by the author. From a 660cc turbo front-wheel drive screaming to 8500rpm on standard engine management but with big injectors… to a DOHC V8 rear-wheel drive with modified traction control… to a twin-turbo all-wheel drive with a custom torque split controller. Even modifying the re-gen braking on a hybrid!
Modifying the Electronics of Modern Classic Cars is essential reading for anyone who wants to exploit the true electronic potential of their 1990s-2000s cars.
Austin cars continued in production long after the other marques that formed BMC were discontinued, with only the MG name that was applied to some Rover models lasting beyond 2000.
Illustrated in full colour and with detailed information including colour schemes, optional equipment and technical specifications, this book provides a complete catalogue of the cars from 1948 onwards, including the Austin models built by the Rover group during the 1990s. This is the ultimate book for those interested in the Austin marque, which is so often only covered briefly in other publications.
This one-of-a-kind, massive illustrated history of more than 10,000 American automobiles is perfect for the millions of classic car enthusiasts.
With more than 1,300 pages and 12,500 illustrations covering 70 years, this may be the most complete visual history of the American automobile ever published. Nowhere else are there so many collector, luxury, sporting and every day cars assembled with fascinating information about original prices, engine sizes, horsepower, and other specifications. The pages are packed with genuine, factory-fresh photographs and drawings taken from contemporary advertisements, catalogs, and brochures.
More than 250 manufacturers and hundreds of individual models trace the evolution of the American automobile, from the millions of Model Ts that rolled off Ford’s assembly line through the art deco streamliners of the ’30s, to the tail-finned land yachts of the ’50s and muscle cars of the ’60s and ’70s up to the early SUVs of the ’90s. Throughout author Tad Burness adds handwritten details not found anywhere else, including pointing out unusual options and differences found within a model. Automotive journalist Matt Stone provides a new general introduction and one to each era within the book.

The third of our three-volume tribute to Lamborghini brings the story right up to date and looks at the cars developed and built under Chrysler and then Audi.

This Workshop Manual covers all basic models of the Land Rover Discovery Series I manufactured between 1989 and 1998. Varieties covered include those with 200Tdi and 300Tdi diesels, the 3.5 carburetor, 3.5, 3.9 and 4.0 injection V8 petrol engines, and the Mpi 2-liter petrol engine. Both manual and automatic transmission versions are included. The material in this book has been specially selected, by a Land Rover expert, for the practical owner who enjoys carrying out basic maintenance and repairs on his or her own vehicle. The information published here is taken directly from Land Rover’s library of technical publications on this vehicle, which includes workshop manuals, parts catalogs, and owners handbooks. The manual does not set out to cover every single job which may be necessary on a Discovery: many jobs require a high degree of mechanical expertise and/or special equipment which the average owner is unlikely to possess. However, descriptions of some more complicated tasks are included here, as are diagnostic tables, to help the interested owner understand the work that may be necessary on his or her vehicle, even if that work will actually be done by professionals. With care and common sense, the practical owner can make an excellent job of maintenance and overhaul. The benefits include money saved, the satisfaction of work well done, and increased understanding and appreciation of the vehicle. Knowing more about the vehicle you own will help you to make more informed decisions about work that needs to be carried out, even if you do decide in the end that it makes more sense to take the vehicle to professionals to get that work done. This Workshop Manual covers all basic models of the Land Rover Discovery Series I manufactured between 1989 and 1998. Varieties covered include those with 200Tdi and 300Tdi diesels, the 3.5 carburettor, 3.5, 3.9 and 4.0 injection V8 petrol engines, and the Mpi 2-litre petrol engine.
