Charles Rolls understood cars - how they were made and how to sell them - but Henry Royce didn't want to design just any car; he was determined to build the best car in the world. The meeting of these two great minds resulted in one of the most iconic feats of engineering then or indeed since. In THE MAN WHO MADE THE BEST CAR IN THE WORLD, beautifully illustrated by Stefan Marjoram, critic and car enthusiast Brian Sewell tells the story of Henry Royce and the creation of the Silver Ghost.
'Britain's most famous and controversial art critic' (Guardian), Brian Sewell is also the best-selling author of two volumes of autobiography - OUTSIDER and OUTSIDER II. An Orwell Prize-winning journalist, he has two loves outside the art world: his beloved dogs (and stars of SLEEPING WITH DOGS), and the motor car. His first work of fiction, THE WHITE UMBRELLA, was published in March 2015.
