The Best of Drives 1Barry Green
Across the 176 pages, alongside megabuck supercars, you will read also of hot hatches, rorty roadsters, sports sedans, super saloons, charismatic classics and full-on race cars. Most new, others not-so; many pristine, a few well-used; but all characterful and memorable.
This mighty motorcade not only includes a comprehensive selection harvested during the author’s career as motoring writer, but many others garnered through hiring or being offered a drive of something special, somewhere special.
Of course, the machinery is but part-percentage of the alchemy that brews a heady draught called a great drive. The Best of Drives 1 tells of the special spaces and places across four continents and 14 countries where driver and car are at one: awesome alpine passes; dark, desert highways; the passage through stupendously-stunning scenery; lonely roads that are the better for it; and racing circuits fast and furious. Some you will have heard of, others maybe not.
