9780847842636: Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas

A sensuously designed showcase of covetable concept or limited-edition cars by the best American and European manufacturers. Dream Cars presents some of the world's most breathtaking concept cars built between 1934 and 2001, a series of visionary designs that influenced the automotive industry and challenged notions of what is possible both aesthetically and technologically. Stunning all-new photography of design pioneers such as the 1935 Bugatti Type 57 Aerolithe, the 1951 LeSabre concept car, and the 1954 Alfa Romeo B.A.T. 7 accompany lush images of dream sports cars, including the 1970 Ferrari Modulo and the 1955 Ghia Streamline X "Gilda." Meticulously restored and brought to life by all-new photography, these images trace a lineage of innovation in automobile design.

Comprehensive descriptions by celebrated automotive writer Ken Gross as well as drawings and scaled models further illustrate the imaginative force of individual designers and famed manufacturers. Surprising insights into familiar models like the minivan, based on the streamlined silhouette of the Stout Scarab concept car developed in 1936, are juxtaposed with startling new technologies such as the 2001 BMW GINA Light Visionary Model's ingenious use of fabric as a retractable skin. An extended essay by Sarah Schleuning explores the effects of aerodynamics and aeronautics on car design and considers how groundbreaking events-such as General Motors's Motorama-fueled the creativity of automobile styles.

Descrizione libro Rizzoli International Publications, United States, 2014. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Dream Cars presents eighteen concept cars built between 1933 and 2001, each revealing the progress and possibility of automobile engineering. The ever-evolving world of car design is marked by innovation and style, and this book explores how visionary designs influence the automotive industry and challenge notions of what is possible, both aesthetically and technologically. The book traces the evolution of such automotive types as the minivan, whose model was based on the streamlined silhouette of the Stout Scarab concept car developed in 1936. Dream Cars considers how the concept car has been used to launch individual design achievements, such as Buckminster Fuller s three-wheeled Dymaxion car, which served as a prototype for fuel-efficient and aerodynamic car design, and Paul Arzens s electric glass bubble car designed for use in Paris in the 1940s. Stunning all-new photography of such cars as the Bugatti 1936 Type 57SC Atlantic, the 1951 Buick LeSabre, the Alfa Romeo 1954 B.A.T. 7, the Ferrari 1970 Modulo, and the Lancia 1970 Stratos Zero and lush detail shots are accompanied by comprehensive descriptions tracing their development.Drawings and scaled models further illustrate the imaginative force of designers in automobile design. An extended essay by Sarah Schleuning addresses the work of individual draftsmen and explores the effects of aerodynamics and aeronautics on car design. Codice libro della libreria AAJ9780847842636
