British TV presenter, Vicki Butler-Henderson, has published a hardback book with Carlton Books entitled "Vicki Butler-Henderson's 100 Sexiest Cars".
"Before I was born, I think I was destined to drive cars. I like to think that I actually came into this world sideways, as it's my preferred position when I'm behind the wheel of most motors," explained Vicki. She knows cars. She has raced them, reviewed them and even driven them for fun.
In this book she lists her all-time top 100 sexiest cars. You'll find Lamborghini, Porsche, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Dodge, Ferrari, Lotus and many, many more of the most exciting drives in the world. Each is reviewed, rated and put through its paces by the UK's number one female four-wheel journalist.
From the Lamborghini Diablo GT supercar to the Ford Capri, Vicki's 100 Sexiest covers a huge variety of makes and models. Some are obvious, but others less so, and that's what makes this such a great read. There are supercars, fun cars, great rides and monster cars, and all are discussed in Vicki's inimitable style.
The reasons for inclusion are interesting too: the Lamborghini Murcielago was apparently what Vicki taught her mum to drive in, her favourite hot hatch was the 1989 VW Golf GTI, her wedding limousine was a Maserati Quattroporte, her first test car in heels was the Audi TT Roadster, her favorite supercar - you'll have to read the book! - her childhood hero car was Thomas Magnum's 308 GTS - the list goes on and adds up to an interesting, personalized century of automobiles. Born into a racing family, Vicki started in karts when she was 12. She holds an International 'C' class racing licence, and has raced most types of machines from a combine harvester to a Ferrari 430, as well as Porsche 911s, Renault Clios, Ford Fiestas, Caterhams and various single-seaters.
In 2004 she became the first woman to win a Maserati race in the history of the marque.
Vicki started work as a journalist on Car Mechanics, Practical Classics and Max Power magazines, before becoming a Road Tester for Auto Express and News Editor for What Car?
She is a regular contributor to a host of publications including the Sunday Times and Country & Town House.
She became a presenter for the BBC's motoring show Top Gear, and later moved to Channel Five TV to become one of the founding presenters of Fifth Gear, which is now in its ninth year.
She has also presented live coverage of the British Touring Car Championship (ITV1) and Speed Sunday (ITV1) as well as Formula Four Stroke power boat racing (Channel 4), Country File (BBC), One Man and His Dog (BBC), Date My Daughter (ITV) and The Biggest Loser (Living).
