The sounds of Supercars featured in a new and innovative book

Unique new title allows car fans of all ages to ‘rev up’ authentic and exotic engines!

British publishing history is made today with the launch of The Sound Of Supercars, a new book incorporating crystal-clear audio clips of 12 of the world’s fastest, most exciting and most exclusive cars.

The beautifully-produced book, priced at £12.99, contains stunning images and fascinating key facts on a dozen supercars from world-famous marques such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche and McLaren.

At the same time as discovering about each of the cars, readers can press a corresponding ‘starter button’ on an integral sound menu, and enjoy a high-quality audio clip as it’s driven at high speed.

“All our recordings correspond precisely to the cars we illustrate”, said author Andrea Pinnington who, with art director partner Caz Buckingham founded Cobalt Fortress to publish the book. “You really can ‘road test’ the cars, bringing them to life and revelling in the sound of each engine.”

It’s a first in print publishing, but continues a highly successful line in wildlife sound books established by sister imprint Fine Feather Press.

Several months in painstaking development, Pinnington and Buckingham designed The Sound Of Supercars to include a spectrum of high-performance vehicles with highly distinctive engines for maximum breadth of sound.

They range from the twin-cylinder Morgan 3-Wheeler to the 16-cylinder Bugatti Chiron, and include the powerful electronic whirr of a Tesla Model S and the classic growl of an Aston Martin DB6. Readers can contrast the howling V10 engine in the Lamborghini Huracan featured on the cover against the all-American V8 burble in the Chevrolet Corvette and the epic bark of the V12 powering the Ferrari LaFerrari.

“Children will love the unique interactive connection that The Sound Of Supercars gives to its subject, but we have a feeling there will be quite a few grown-up enthusiasts who find it irresistible too,” Pinnington added.
