Britain emerged from the Second World War on the brink of financial disaster and weighed down by the continued rationing of food, fuel and consumer goods. Showing the same indomitable spirit of war, the British turned their attention to their devastated economy. Overwhelmed by the debt and having to rely on foreign assistance to meet the basic needs, the new Labor government sent the industry to "export or die" in an attempt to earn the necessary capital to put the country back on its feet. Among those who responded to this call there were car manufacturers such as AC, Aston Martin, Austin-Healey, Jaguar, MG, Mini, Morgan and Triumph, whose sports cars received immediate and enthusiastic follow-up around the world, helping to resurrect their homeland.
Rule Britannia celebrates this compelling story with authoritative texts by John Nikas and his team of researchers and collaborators; historical images from archives run by fashion clubs, producers, museums and modern portraits captured by art, by Michael Furman, the most famous automotive photographer in the world.
This volume has already received critical acclaim and is sure to become a milestone for the genre. Join us to relive this extraordinary period of British automobile history, when sports cars really saved a nation.
