Jared Zichek


Automotive history is filled with concepts which never left the drawing board, with early streamlined projects being among the more fascinating. This book presents ten of the most striking and unusual aerodynamic automobile studies of the interwar period. Subjects include a torpedo-like race car driven by periscope; advanced teardrop passenger cars; rocket-powered vehicles with wings; Harry Miller’s land speed record dream car; a three-wheel GP car inspired by racing aircraft; and a pair of huge and futuristic Nazi record vehicles. All of these concepts are brought to life in stunning full color CG reconstructions showing these remarkable vehicles from every angle.
