First published in 1994 in French, this superb book, heavily illustrated, comprehensively explains the full history of the Amilcar company. Now in English with a French text companion volume. The book describes the development of the Amilcar company, the different models produced, and details its racing records and the drivers and personalities involved. David Burgess-Wise, respected motoring author and enthusiast has provided the translation and prepared a new Brooklands supplement with previously unpublished photographs from the Brooklands archives. This English version is lavishly illustrated with the original period photographs and advertisements of the era. The French text is included as a separate supplement, and the two volumes are enclosed in a slip case.

Gilles Fournier bought his first old car at the age of 17. Shortly afterwards, he came across an Amilcar cyclecar and was smitten by the allure of the marque, becoming completely addicted when he first heard the wonderfully beguiling sound of the supercharged twin-cam 1100cc engine of the incomparable six-cylinder Amilcar. He is now researching another Amilcar book.

David Burgess-Wise is also an enthusiast of French marques. A motoring writer since 1960, David has his own specialist editorial service and has written some 25 books on motoring history. He also edits the award-winning Aston, journal of the Aston Martin Heritage Trust.
