“Since the early 1900s, the French have been renowned for their quest of mechanical and aesthetic excellence. This was true in their approach to aviation as well as automobiles. In Vitesse-Élégance, the third in the series on the Mullin Automotive Museum’s extraordinary collection of French cars, author Serge Bellu takes a fresh look at the efforts of the French automakers and their aeronautical roots. Beginning with Gabriel Voisin and his fascinating vehicles, the book looks at Hispano-Suiza, Renault, Peugeot, Panhard Levassor, Chenard & Walcker and a dozen other marques who crossed back and forth between air and land conveyances. This lavish edition is complete with historical images and documents, as well as the modern studio photography of Michael Furman.
