Sobre este título:

Sinopsis: The official historian of the Lanchester Car Registry tells the fascinating story of the Lanchester brothers, Frederick, George and Frank. The story has been developed from collected documents and photographs, many of them previously unpublished. Described is the design and construction of the first automobile in Great Britain in 1895, and important inventions such as the disc brake, four-wheel drive, fuel injection, turbo charging and more. This magnificent book is a must for all automobile enthusiasts.

From the Author: There must be innumerable examples of British genius failing to gain the recognition it deserved. A bushel of modesty can hide even the brightest of lights, and the brightest of lights will always fade with the passage of years. For too many of these years the Lanchester name has been largely forgotten. Rolls-Royce have guarded jealously their reputation for making the best cars in the world, and few people now are aware that Lanchester's were similarly described and for a long time provided their stiffest competition.

Henry Ford may have shown the world the efficiency of mass production, but how many people realize that Frederick Lanchester devised the basis for this long ago? The story of the three brothers whose creativity, intellects and passionate commitment to their ideals laid the foundations for the best engineering practices we have today, demands to be told.

This book tells that story. The lives and achievements of Frederick, George and Frank Lanchester are described here by the official Historian of the Lanchester Register. The story has been built up from collections of documents and photographs, many of them previously unpublished, and from the personal and affectionate recollections of those who remember events at first hand. It relives the design of the first all-British, four-wheel, petrol car, and charts the evolution of the Lanchester cars that followed. It reflects the sense of excitement the brothers must have felt when unveiling Britain's first motor boat, and the challenge of developing and testing Frederick Lanchester's theories on powered flight and the fundamentals of aircraft design.

It takes us back to the beginnings of features which are now taken for granted, vibration-less engines and four-wheel drive, turbo-charging and fuel-injection, power-steering and disc brakes, pneumatic tires, and even the humble accelerator pedal. But above all, chronicles the evidence for placing Frederick Lanchester among the greatest of the great British minds that have shaped the world.
