Aston Martin is a feast for the eyes in the truest sense of the word. Lavishly illustrated with more than 400 color photographs, which were shot especially for this book, it covers the entire history of this automobile - a history full of passion. With approximately 280 pages and an abundance of information, the exciting text consolidates the total picture.
There is a persistent rumor that Rainer Schlegelmilch's birth was initiated on the back seat of a Mercedes Benz 170V. Whether or not this is the source of his ongoing affinity to anything that has four wheels, his fascination with cars is vividly expressed in his pictures. How do you get from German and English philology to automotive journalism? Chalk it up to car racing: the appearance of the Silver Arrows (Silberpfeile) in Spa, Zandvoort and at the Nurburgring, says the Germanist and Anglicist Hartmut Lehbrink. Numerous books on automobiles and racing penned by Lehbrink testify to the long-term impact of these early experiences.
