Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Rainer W. Schlegelmilch studied photography in Munich and in 1964 opened a studio for advertising photography. During his studies, visits to car races led him to discover his passion for motor sports and fast cars. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

About the Author

There is a persistent rumor that Rainer Schlegelmilch's birth was initiated on the back seat of a Mercedes Benz 170V. Whether or not this is the source of his ongoing affinity to anything that has four wheels, his fascination with cars is vividly expressed in his pictures. How do you get from German and English philology to automotive journalism? Chalk it up to car racing: the appearance of the Silver Arrows (Silberpfeile) in Spa, Zandvoort and at the Nurburgring, says the Germanist and Anglicist Hartmut Lehbrink. Numerous books on automobiles and racing penned by Lehbrink testify to the long-term impact of these early experiences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This is the third book I have by the same authors. As with the previous 2 it follows the same formulae. A brief introduction of the marque, and then a model by model discription. If it's not in this book, then it's probable that Aston Martin never made it. The color pictures are superb and show off the cars perfectly. The photos of the DB4 Zagato are amazing and really show this car in all it's glory. Every car maker has one model that best exemplifies the marque, and the Zagato is it.
The background on the cars is printed in 3 languages, so it's not as detailed as you might think.
Overall, this is a great reference book and a must for any car lover.
Look out for the technical specs of each model at the back of the book.

Aston Martin Hardcover, Rainer W. Schlegelmilch, Hartmut Lehbrink, Jochen Von Osterroth,2005,English/Gray Car on Cover.I ended up getting the abovementioned version first before the "Updated" version,but not bad because I got it for $1 and some shipping and it is in great condition.It is a Pictorial Reference for the Marque Although there is some reading along with the Page Spreads and Mostly color Photography,It covers up to then Ford's Ownership of Aston Martin.some highlights for me include Rowan "Mr.Bean" Atkinson's Aston Martin Racer, The Atom and The Most Beautiful AM to me ever the DBR1, I would have liked more Cars,More Pictures inn this otherwise Elegant Huge Hardcover book specifically the Aston Martin Racing Team of Today but the book at the time printed didn't mention or show it,Since I was Lucky to See Aston Martin Racing Up Close at Sebring Before Back to back.I would like have to seen the Movie Check Point (1956) mentioned since that's a Great Racing Movie with Lagonda and Aston Martin cars.There is a Updated Version of this book which shows a Similar cover and Cover car different color and with a Green Slipcase which I will eventually get but not for the high prices.In short,the Book is a welcome addition to the library but overall short look at This Glorious Car.

This book was a major disappointment. Several cars , like the 2010-2013 V12 Vantage were left out. The copy is a bit stale, too. Had I flipped through it in a bookstore, I never would have bought it. I wish the contents matched the very nice cover. It was not worth the money to me.
