HAYNES PUBLISHES FINAL NEW PRINT MANUAL

Haynes has published its final printed manual, a book called Building a Special written by  engineer and TV presenter Ant Anstead. It follows the build of a single-seater ‘special’, which is based on the concept of the 1930s Alfa Romeo 158 Formula 1 grand prix car.

Final manual from Haynes echoes first book

The manual is a callback to the first Haynes publication, Building a ‘750’ Special, which was written by company founder John Haynes, when he was a teenager.  Haynes manuals have been an accessory shop staple ever since.

John Haynes died in February 2019. The company was put up for sale in October of that year and acquired by France-based Infopro Digital in May 2020.

Although no new workshop or lifestyle manuals are planned, the existing back catalogue will continue to be offered and the firm has said that a new consumer-level digital product is in the works, which will presumably be connected to Infopro Digital’s vehicle data platforms.
