"This DVD offers stunning footage and analysis of 14 different supercars, and it's good to see models from Nissan, Ford and VW getting chapters alongside Italy's finest. A pair of narrators share voiceover duty to give background to the naming of each vehicle and its public reception. Our only real criticism is that the DVD doesn't include some of the newer models we'd like to have seen" Auto Express
