Hop Inside the Most Exotic Cars

At the turn of the 20th Century, the automobile (then called the horseless carriage) had been around for about a decade. But just being able to get from one place to another without a horse wasn't enough for many drivers. Humans had discovered speed and we loved what it felt like. Faster and faster cars were being produced and car races were becoming popular. The exotic car, luxury car, supercar, and extreme car all began on the early raceways of Europe and America. This is the story of both the earliest fast and stylish cars and the cars of today that are changing the way all automobiles are powered, made and driven. From Rolls-Royce to the Inferno Exotic Car, discover what it takes to turn heads and upend perceptions. Each book in The World of Automobiles series takes a close-up look at the most interesting aspects of the cars we love. Who makes them, how we love to trick them out, the craziest cars of them all, and trucks too...it's all here. So, jump in, get behind the wheel and put the pedal to the floor! Each title in this series contains color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Text Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. Educational Videos are offered through the use of a QR code, that when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in history, speech etc. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
