Publisher's Summary

Imagine a small, black car. A simple car of its time. A '40 Ford coupe. But just not any coupe; this little coupe was destined to become the famous Bahnburner, making global headlines after author Charles Clark witnessed a high-performance Mercedes create a hit-and-run on the Autobahn, wrecking a BMW and killing the occupants, an engineer who worked at BMW and his wife.
That evening, the Mercedes driver entered a bar and bragged about what he had done. Clark was there and challenged him to a race and a bet of $35,000 - a race that turned his simple Ford coupe into the awesome, don't-mess-with-me Bahnburner. It became a my-car-can-beat-your-car revenge meet. The rest became history, with many helping hands from the engineers at BMW and driving tips from race-car driver Bobby Unser.

I Wanted To Like It More

I was expecting to like this book much more than I did. The author gives way to much information about things not related to the history of the car. "I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast."
