Description of this Book

From a giant crane that can lift 11 blue whales to a space probe that's traveled more than 10 million miles (and counting), these are the world's biggest, fastest, and most powerful vehicles! What's the speediest sportscar? The sneakiest spy plane? And . . . the fastest sofa? From the smallest sub and deepest diver to the largest jumbo jet and most powerful rocket, these mega machines are record setters! With lively photos on every spread, and pages filled with fun facts about haulers, gliders, monster trucks, and more, this collection of extreme vehicles will delight techno-loving kids! Reissue of previous edition in a smaller format.
