From the Jupiter s inception and development, to it s sporting success, and it s current status as a sought-after classic, this unique book from the world authority on the Jupiter is a complete study of the model. Designed by Dr Eberan-Eberhorst, the noted Austrian engineer who designed the Auto Union Type D Grand Prix car, the Jowett Jupiter was an instant hit. With it s responsive handling and lively engine, the Jupiter had great sporting success from the off, with a record-breaking win at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1950, and a class 1-2 win at 1951 s Monte Carlo International Rally. This book covers the Jupiter s success across the board, revealing the full chronology of the model, it s racing derivates, and the special-bodied Jupiters from the likes of Stabilimenti Farina and Abbott of Farnham. With chapters detailing Jupiters in current use, historic racing, and concours events, this book is a unique and comprehensive record of this fantastic, historic car.
