The brand-new edition of Into The Red – now called Passion For Speed – is released by Carlton this month.
The best-selling book by Nick Mason and Mark Hales has been updated and enlarged with two additional cars. The phenomenal 21st-century, limited-edition Ferrari Enzo – Nick’s car claimed Top Gear’s lap record when it appeared on the show driven by the then-anonymous Stig – is balanced by the elegance and manners of the 1964 Alfa Romeo TZ1. As ever, both cars were tested to the limit (this time on the Anglesey Road Circuit), photographed at speed and there signature engine sounds captured for the CD that comes with the book. Turn it up loud! Nick and Mark will be promoting the book through the autumn. More news as soon as dates are confirmed.
