Conceived as an alternative to the 'bubble cars' popular in the 1950s, Alec Issigonis' revolutionary Mini established the pattern for the modern car with its front-wheel drive and transverse engine. This history of more than a century of evolution includes illustrated features exploring mileposts in car design and engine development as well as profiling the great marques and presenting over a thousand colour images of important cars, from Daimler's first petrol-engined vehicle of 1886 to modern hybrids.
