If you’ve never heard of the Volkhart V2 Sagitta, the Œuf électrique or the Stanley Steamer, you’re in for a treat.


In my new book “Lost Beauties”, produced

by publishers teNeues and beautifully illustrated by Swiss photographer Michel Zumbrunn, I describe 50 cars that were lost for a multitude of reasons, either because

the manufacturer ceased to exist, or because

they were found on the bottom of a lake

75 years later like the Bugatti Brescia.


This book covers 50 beautiful one-offs, whacky concepts, iconic trendsetters, and dramatic failures. Foreword by Andrea Zagato. Text in German and English.


Due out in April in Germany and in

May in most other countries.
