Since the creation of the automobile over a hundred years ago, man has been obsessed with the desire to go faster. Not just for its own sake, but to achieve total control of the complex geometry, forces and aesthetics which, in perfect harmony, characterise the classic sports car.
"The Marque of a Legend" is a unique tribute to the great innovators in sports car design and engineering, who came closest to achieving this perfection, and to their renowned marques and models.
THE DRIVERS For the first and possibly the last time, Stirling Moss, John Surtees, Jacky Ickx, Derek Bell and Willie Green put these great cars of six decades thrillingly through their paces.
