From the Benz Patent-Motorwagen in 1886 to the Tesla Model S of the 21st Century. Another of his books, Badass, explores an unheralded aspect of automotive design: the role and importance of the rear end in terms of the vehicle’s overall function and personality. Badass weaves an informative and entertaining narrative around automotive badasses.
