Here is a taster of the final forthcoming titles of 2020:
AR037a Land Rover second edition
The Land Rover celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2008, the year in which the first edition of this Auto Review book was published. In the same year the marque found a new owner in Tata of India. The Land Rover was a workhorse which found a multitude of uses all over the world, and inspired affection in generations of owners and users.

AR165 Bus & Coach Album: 1 – Coachbuilders in England
AR166 Made in Switzerland
Few Swiss-made vehicles are known to enthusiasts in other countries, perhaps with the exception of the locally-built PTT post buses. Switzerland was fiercely independent, however, and often cut off from international markets due to its policy of neutrality in two world wars. This meant that there was demand for Swiss-made vehicles, which was served by many companies. In these pages we have the stories of the major Swiss bus and truck makers, Saurer, Berna and FBW, and car manufacturers which include Martini, Monteverdi and Sauber. Smaller firms produced exotica, such as Sbarro and Rinspeed, and there have been many top-class coachbuilders; Langenthal, Gangloff, Graber and others. In all, more than 75 Swiss marques are described in this publication.
.And here are details of the the first two titles for 2021
AR167 Cadillac Album and the story of LaSalle
AR168 Voisin Album
For some years we have wanted to tell the story of Gabriel Voisin in Auto Review. A famous pioneer aviator (along with his brother Charles, who died young), Gabriel turned to car manufacture after the Great War, when contracts for aircraft came to an end. With Noel Noel, a friend from his days as a student of architecture, he designed stylish Art Deco Voisin cars, and the pair shared amorous adventures with Parisian ladies. Gabriel’s profligate spending and lack of business acumen meant that he lost control of his company, then regained it, before the Second World war brought an end to the luxury car market. After the War Gabriel produced the spartan Biscooter, which found a home in the car-starved Spanish market. Voisin was not the only aviator to change direction and go on to produce cars, and others are described in these pages. Some, like Voisin, were forced to find other activities for their workforce after the 1918 Armistice, such as Blériot, Farman, Rumpler, Avro and Gloster. Others switched to wheeled vehicles after (or during) the Second World War, such as Saab, Bréguet, Piaggio and Caproni. German aircraft firms were in a particularly difficult situation; Heinkel, Dornier and Messerschmitt all produced microcars. In the USA things were different; well-known names like Curtiss and Beech tried car manufacture with little success. Bill Stout designed aircraft, the most famous of which was the Ford Tri-Motor, before turning to futuristic car designs in the 1930s. The most recent aviation company to move into car production was Matra, famed for its competition cars and later for the Renault Espace. All of these stories are told here, and more…
