This series looks at the technology behind engine-powered vehicles and the features that make the vehicles unique.

Each vehicle is looked at from the inside to the outside, starting with the vehicle as a whole and then looking at each individual system, including the engine and braking system to the cooling system and safety.

Each spread is illustrated by large cross-sectional artworks so that readers can see what the components look like and how they work together to power the vehicle.

With accessible and engaging text, this series is especially suitable for reluctant readers but any 'petrol-head' will find it an enthralling read.
