Buckle up and enjoy a tour of the most stylish sports cars of the last 100 years--and the fascinating stories that made them icons of the road. Petrolheads and auto devotees: buckle up, we're going for a ride on the best works of machinery to have ever hit the road. From the legendary Porsche 917 (Steve McQueen's favorite) to the Ferrari Daytona (famously replicated for the Miami Vice TV series) and the slick Aston Martin DB5 (James Bond's favorite mode of transport), discover the fascinating stories behind quintessential sports cars. In Beautiful Machines we look under the hood of classic autos that became icons of a whole era, tracing back their history and highlighting the engineering that defined them.
