Mythical pairings of stars and their and cars and their greatest moments on screen and in life.

The most iconic stars and the coolest cars meet in this beautifully designed, classic gift book for gearheads, film fans, and classic car enthusiasts.

Steve McQueen, a Mustang, and San Francisco; the ten-minute pursuit in Bullitt has remained the definitive movie car chase for nearly fifty years. Iconic moments from cinematic history do not get much better than this.

Stars & Cars is a celebration of the most unforgettable automotive moments in film, TV, and popular culture. Lavishly illustrated, it brings together the iconic cars that made an impact on our collective psyche, and the stars who drove, raced, collected, repainted, crashed, or simply loved them to an obsessional degree.

From James Dean and his ill-fated Porsche Spyder, to the greatest Aston Martin moments in the Bond movies. Heroic Minis in The Italian Job, to the eye-popping paint jobs on the psychedelic limos commissioned by The Beatles - all of the greatest collaborations between stars and cars are featured in the pages of this book.
