The rich history of automotive engineering is ripe with classic cars that have only become more precious over time. However, some vehicles achieve that timeless status the moment they hit the showroom floor. These instant classics are cutting edge automobiles that push the envelope on everything from performance to design. ‘Neo Classics’ by René Staud & Jürgen Lewandowski chronicles these showstopping supercars with expertly written insights and stunning photography.
Lewandowski presided over the automotive section of Süddeutsche Zeitung as its editor for over 20 years and has authored nearly 100 books about cars. By partnering with renowned photographer René Staud, the pair was able to capture stunning imagery of neo-classics from the Bugatti Chiron to the Mercedes AMG One. Staud’s Magicflash lighting system captures every intricate detail of the complex engineering that powers these vehicles to push the boundaries of what a car can do. This book follows in the footsteps of 6 other teNeues volumes written by Lewandoski including the ‘Porsche 911 Book’ and ‘The Ferrari Book – Passion for Design’ which have gone on to sell more than 70,000 copies.
