Now available is the Car Design Yearbook 3, the third volume of the annual series that features the latest concept and production cars from around the world. New to this edition are essays on aerodynamics and developments in lighting, as well as profiles of designers Wayne Cherry of GM, Peter Horbury of Volvo, and Andrea Zagato of Zagato Design. Also included are more than 130 new

where the models were launched. The Yearbook is authored by automotive design
consultant Stephen Newbury, who was involved in the Volvo c70 and the Renault
Clio Sport V6 projects.
