FERRARI REX Biografia di un grande italiano del Novecento

Manufacturer: Giorgio Nada Editore
excluding shipping

FERRARI REX is the book on the life of Enzo Ferrari that had yet to be written. It is the definitive biography, the work that redefines the life of a 20th century giant as the epic quest of a man as complex, tormented and versatile as no other in motor racing history. Comprising over 1,100 pages, the book features previously unpublished photographs, was five years in the writing and is the fruit of eight years’ painstaking study of newspapers, periodicals and above all documents and private papers made available for the first time. First hand accounts from some of the members of the circle closest to the man from Maranello add further depth. FERRARI REX explains for the first time the mystery of Enzo’s two birth dates, tells the story of his first flawed entrepreneurial attempt until its humiliating fiasco; deals with Enzo’s personal relationship with the Fascist regime before and during the war and with Communist leaders in post–war Italy and opens an unprecedented window on Enzo’s complicated and grief-stricken personal life while going to the roots of his much talked about reputation as a womanizer. The Enzo Ferrari that emerges from the pages of FERRARI REX is a man in all his immense complexity with a larger-than-life self-confidence, ruthlessness and unashamed vulgarity but also surprisingly charming, unexpectedly frail and blessed with an unwavering faith in himself and an unsuspected life-long optimism.

Published in 1998 by the ‘Eredità Enzo Ferrari’ to mark the centenary of Enzo Ferrari’s birth and the first decade after his death, “Una Vita per l’Automobile” (A Life for the Car) is a book that brings together about 500 black and white images from the world’s most important photographic archives, pictures taken by well-known car photographers. His infancy, his years as a racing driver, those as the motor sport director of Alfa Romeo, his debut as a constructor in his own right and the era of the Prancing Horse until 1988, these are the various phases of the Commendatore’s long and extraordinary life, which are all documented in this work. Ferrari comments on each picture in his own words, those thoughts which were usually entered daily into his personal diary in that purple ink of his. A limited number of copies of the book, which has been out of print for years, are now available.

FIAT 1800 2100 2300

The Fiat 1800 and 2100 (and later the 2300) represent the flagship models the Turin-based firm offered in the mid-Sixties to a clientele looking for a large, elegant, robust and reliable car at a price undercutting the contemporary Lancias and Alfa Romeos. Along with the classic saloon versions, a modern station-wagon and a ceremonial long-wheelbase variant were also offered. They were all powered by a refined straight-six. The range was extended in 1961 with the splendid and powerful 2300 S Coupé bodied by Ghia, one of the most successful and attractive Fiat sports cars, while the following year it was the turn of the more economical four-cylinder 1500 L. This book tells the story of the birth and development of this significant family of Fiat cars, presenting the technical issues and historical details of the various versions produced. Equipped with detailed technical files and illustrated with numerous contemporary images, the book also provides a very useful guide to restoration and invaluable maintenance tips.
