Top Gear's Midlife Crisis Cars


Formats & editions


The third title in our bestselling 'Top Gear' humour series, Midlife Crisis Cars will strike a chord with every middle-aged man in Britain, and his partner.

Following up on Crap Cars and My Dad Had One of Those, for Father’s Day 2008 Top Gear celebrates the midlife crisis with the definitive collection of the flashest, fastest, most impractical cars ever to be found in the driveways of otherwise perfectly sensible men.

Drawing on the high level of expertise in this area, Top Gear explores the phenomenon of motoring and the midlife crisis, identifying over 50 classics of the genre across four desperate decades. From Ford Capri to Ferrari Testarossa, it celebrates the flashest, fastest and most ridiculous attempts to cover a bald spot, meanwhile offering a profound insight into the complex psychology of a middle-aged man and his quest for eternal youth.

Top Gear's Midlife Crisis Cars both rejoices and recoils at the time-honoured tradition of flushing the children's inheritance on something you're too arthritic to get into in the first place.
