By Griffith Borgeson. This book traces the development of the thoroughbred racing engine from the beginnings of the art to our own time. It is an engineer’s delight but is carefully written for the layman to understand and enjoy. Strong emphasis on the human roles of the personalities involved renders the text vibrantly alive. In this one substantial volume are gathered detailed accounts of how many of the great marques and the important lesser ones worked with this most efficient and exciting form of power plant up to 1940. Post-war development of the breed is summarized in a richly illustrative final chapter.

Never before has such a definitive collection of photographs and drawings of twin-cam engines been available in a single volume. Original and highly detailed tables of technical data, along with bibliography and index, help to make this book indispensible to every lover of the high-performance automotive engine.
