The book about the Ape - Piaggio 'three wheeler' - that was waiting to be written, with a wealth of illustrations and completed with a comprehensive listing of all the models produced through to the present day. In the years immediately after the Second World War Italy was in desperate need of reconstruction, economic resources were scarce and there was above all a lack of a vehicle capable of satisfying the new commercial reality. On the one hand the market was offering large and expensive lorries, on the other cheap, small motorcycles but neither was suitable for small businesses. This changed in 1947 (just a year after the launch of the Vespa) with the presentation of the Ape that from the outset enjoyed enormous success and was offered in an infinite series of variants: flat beds, panel vans, tipper trucks, trailers, autorickshaws and fire trucks. A success story that has continued through to the present day with special versions built for the Pope and the President of the Italian Republic. 
Until now there had never been a book capable of tackling the Ape phenomenon in its totality. This book presents the history and the engineering of a remarkable vehicle, taking in such aspects and styling and publicity, not to mention the great intercontinental journeys undertaken with this legendary three-wheeler. Lastly, along with the production figures, for the first time we are publishing a complete illustrated catalogue of every model produced to date, each accompanied by a detailed technical file.

FIAT 850 COUPÈ E SPIDER

The now classic book series “The Cars that Made History” is enriched with another new title, this time devoted to the Fiat 850 coupé and roadster. Both cars made their debut at the 1965 Geneva Motor Show, where they created a great deal of public interest in their design: the coupé sober and essential, the roadster sporting and elegant, built at Carrozzeria Bertone to a Giorgetto Giugiaro design. The low prices the Turin manufacturer established made these mid-Sixties’ newcomers even more appealing. With a simple but rigorously accurate text and invaluable archive material, this book covers the industrial, technical and sports history of both models, series after series. It also offers a complete guide to restoring the coupé and roadster plus, naturally, a full list of all chassis numbers.
