" James Taylor brings to bear his usual attention to detail; doing justice to the P6 saga while also providing a fantastic reference to make cars period-correct. The foreword describes the fun he had writing the book and it's easy to see why - it's bursting with pleasing little details from the P6-branded cigarettes at the press launch to crash-test photos. "
