Following in the mould of 'Silver Arrows in Camera', this book explores in period photographs the extraordinary story of the BRM V16, which raced between 1950 and 1954. Over 400 photographs, including a small amount of rare colour pictures are accompanied by an informative commentary. BRM (British Racing Motors) was a motor racing venture created in 1950 to represent Britain in the new Formula 1 category. A symbol of Britain’s post-war rebirth, the BRM car did nothing by halves: its 1.5-litre 16-cylinder supercharged engine and advanced specification made it a technical tour de force, but it earned a reputation as a fantastic folly, such that Stirling Moss described it as ‘without doubt the worst car I ever drove’. This book is a fascinating portrait of a racing car that still engenders enduring fascination.

Anthony Pritchard has been writing about motor racing for over 50 years and has had over 60 books published. Among his many books for Haynes are two volumes of Silver Arrows in Camera (1934–39 and 1951–55) and Ferrari 250 GTO: The history of a legend.
