Coupés - Classic Coupés & Berlinetta's of Yesterday and Today - Jean-Paul Thevenet and Peter Vann
Coupes (closed two-seaters) and Berlinetta’s (small “saloons”) have always been amongst the purest expressions of automotive art. The proportions of a Coupe or Berlinetta lend themselves to long, rakish bonnets, ﬂowing roof lines and curvaceous tails - giving designers unparalleled freedom to exercise their skills Engineers, too, have been able to achieve mechanical excellence, for these are above all sporting cars: they could be described as the sports cars of the discerning. This book is a feast of classic Coupes and Berlinetta’s in which every connoisseur will ﬁnd pulse-quickening cars to covet. Within these pages, the lens of Vann and the pen of Thevenet have captured the essence of some of the world’s ﬁnest cars.
