A shabby cover faults this fascinating look at our auto past. 208 crisp white pp, approx 750g packed for post to you. GT has an aura that emanates from a superlative pedigree of Grand Tourers with their origins in the sports coupe of the 1930s. Automobile historian Jonathan Wood sets out the story from that time into the post-war era which saw the birth of the saloon car/sports car concept of the GT as we know it. Then, in the Sixties came the arrival of the volume production GT, while the last two decades have seen technological advances that have played a part in perpetuating the theme.
