Reviews

Fascinating and entertaining. No one is better placed than Jon Bentley to open up the past, present and future of the motor car. * Tiff Needell, former presenter of Top Gear and Fifth Gear * Intelligent, honest, and extremely interesting. Just like Jon. * Richard Porter, founder of Sniff Petrol, and script editor of The Grand Tour * An enjoyable, fact-filled conversation with uncle Jon, taking us on a road trip through the speed bumps and detours on our journey towards an Autopian future. * Edd China, TV presenter and author of Grease Junkie * Jon Bentley is a true petrolhead. In Autopia, Jon makes even complex automotive innovations easy to understand. I couldn't put it down. * Mike Brewer, presenter of Wheeler Dealers * Jon is a passionate, articulate and characteristic car man who has a canny knack of capturing the very essence of the sector I love so much! Exactly what he has done with Autopia. Brilliant. * Ant Anstead, presenter of Channel 4's For the Love of Cars *
