Practical Classics, November 2022
'A lavish offering with over 180 original GT40 technical drawings, plus numerous additional supporting drawings, illustrations, graphics and period photographs with explanatory text and captions.
Motorsport, October 2022
'If you're fond of engineering drawings, here's a feast. Claude Nahum, already a GT40 owner, brought a chestful of GT40 drawings to enable him to build a tool-room replica of the prototype; having done that he decided to compile them into this vast volume, assisted by Steve Rendle. Here are 180 technical drawings for the GT, with fine cutaways and multiple photographs.'
'Still, the whole package is fabulously presented, with a great deal of informative text.'

'Showcasing original technical drawings, cutaways and period photos, GT40 UNCOVERED! treats readers to a unique look at the engineering story of Ford’s multiple Le Mans winners: GT40, Mark II and Mark IV.
GT40 UNCOVERED is more than simply a book. It’s a lavish production of a condensed research library, giving the reader rare access to the evolution of Ford’s iconic Le Mans-winning GT racecar via an almost endless cache of archival blueprints, drawings and photos. There are more than 250 original technical drawings, plus illustrations, graphics supporting period photos. Coverage also includes the Mark I and Mark III GT40 road cars. Calling GT40 UNCOVERED! “a book” is akin to labeling Ferrari’s 250 GTO, “a car.”'
After the obligatory introduction to the GT40, the people involved, and an explanation of how the drawing process took place - a fascinating subject in its own right - the book features and explains dozens of the original drawings; everything from suspension uprights to dashboard layouts to transaxles. Well, not everything of course: Nahum has sensibly ensured that there's not nearly enough info in this selection to create a whole GT40 from scratch. It's all rounded off with some beautiful cutaway drawings of key GT40s. Yes, it's pricey, but this stunning book's print run has almost sold out. If you want one, act fast.' MD
