Two years ago, noted automotive photographer Piotr Degler was inspired by the 1978 photo of a mustard yellow Mercedes-Benz 300 SL in Cuba, inspired enough to travel to the island in search of the most interesting cars.
After shooting more than 25,000 photos from his trip, and devoting 12 to a calendar last year, Degler’s next project is a “no limit” look at the cars of Cuba. The result, Carros de Cuba, is a coffee table book that’s likely the most extensive—and final—look at the country’s car culture after years of Communist rule.
The book is divided in three sections: INTRODUCTION (A short general view of Cuba - not car related), ON THE ROAD (Classic cars which are used daily) and RUST IN PEACE (hidden treasures and abandoned cars such as a Mercedes Gullwing, 300SL Roadster, Hispano Suiza, Porsche 356, Jaguar, etc.)
