520    The longest ship ever built, the heaviest digger and the 
       largest aeroplane, the world's first working motorcar, and
       its most expensive one. What machines like these have in 
       common is that they all say a lot about the inventiveness 
       and imagination of the people who conceived and created 
       them. Some of them are useful, others are just a bit of 
       fun, but the best ones are truly magnificent, and 
       fascinating to discover. Designed to drive faster, fly 
       higher, carry more cargo or - in the case of space rockets
       - travel hundreds of thousands of miles to places no-one 
       has ever been before, not every idea has worked but the 
       best have been inspired and inspirational, and in a few 
       cases they have gone on to change the world. It is the 
       human stories and atmospheric art that make this a book to
       actually read and delight in.
