MILLE MIGLIA 2015 IL LIBRO UFFICIALE/THE OFFICIAL BOOK

The new, official book of the 2015 Mille Miglia opens with a focus on the memorable victory in the 1955 event by Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. They won the Brescian classic at an incredible average speed of 157 kph (97.6 mph), a record that has remained unbeaten. And three of those Silvers Arrows dominated the 2015 commemorative Mille Miglia, opening the roads of northern Italy for the crews that had brought their extraordinary cars to the event, which touched, as always, a number of the most delightful cities and locations in the bel paese. This year’s race was dominated by the Bugattis, with the French-built cars taking the first 10 places overall as well as in that Temple of Speed, the Monza Autodrome. The 2015 Mille Miglia’s visit to one of the world’s fastest racing circuits was its homage to Milan, home of the world-famous Expo, to which the central part of the book is devoted and which concludes as in previous years with a systematic cataloging of all 438 starters. Yet another record for a race that retains unaltered its unequalled fascination. As always, numerous professional racing drivers were at the start of the race, including Sir Stirling Moss, Hans Herrmann and Ralf Schumacher, each driving one of the works Mercedes-Benz 300 SLRs and they were joined by Jochen Mass, Cesare Fiorio, Derek Bell and Karl Windlinger.

AUTOBIANCHI A112 ABARTH - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

Unlike the previous editions of the ’90s, this book concentrates on the Abarth 58 and 70 HP versions of the Autobianchi A112, the rarest of all and the most sought after by collectors. This is an across the board analysis of the car: it contains a general historic introduction on Autobianchi, Carlo Abarth and the A112 itself. They were the cars that began the decline of Abarth in 1971, and the book contains an analysis of the entire evolution of the seven series that succeeded them in the following 14 years of production. There is also a section devoted to documentation: the use and maintenance manuals, catalogues, leaflets, advertising and a segment giving advice on the Abarths’ identification, purchase, restoration and quotations. The book is completed by the car’s sports career in Italy and other countries, culminating in the eight Trofeo A112 Abarth 70HP events and closes with reference to today, including the vintage races and the various clubs devoted to this important car.

MASERATI ALL THE CARS - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

Maserati became 100 years old in 2014. A century of history, graced by some of the greatest technicians, racing drivers, cars and victories. So it is time to devote a ‘catalogue’ to the celebrated House of the Trident that brings together almost all its production, from the Tipo 26 – the Grand Prix racer with which the Maserati brothers first became constructors back in 1926 – to current production cars like the GranTurismo, Quattroporte, Ghibli and the brand new Kubang. Between the two came road and racing cars that were true icons of automobile history. The first group includes, among others, the A6 1500, 3500 and 5000 GT, the Ghibli, Indy and Merak; the second the astounding 8CTF, the A6GCSs, the 250 F, the ‘Birdcage’ and the more recent MC12. The book includes 150 full colour designs by illustrator Michele Leonello.

VALENTINO ROSSI: IL CAMPIONISSIMO

20 World Championship seasons, nine world titles, 330 races disputed, 112 victories, 211 podiums, 61 pole positions, 5,418 points on the board. The bald stats alone would be sufficient to define Valentino Rossi as a Campionissimo, but there is so much more to the man. He is a great Italian, for better or worse, a provincial boy made good who has flown the flag for motorcycling in every corner of the globe. The Doctor, the rider who took Yamaha to triumphant victory after a long lean period and the man who challenged Honda and its men. This book focuses on the human and competitive side of a rider who, at the end of the most hotly disputed and acrimonious season in the history of MotoGP was the true winner, the moral champion. The text is accompanied by hundreds of spectacular images from some of MotoGP’s most renowned photographers.

HONDA CB 750 FOURS - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

In a list of the 10 most significant motorcycles in two-wheel history, there is no doubt that the Honda 750 must take one of the top places. But it would also be included if the list were to be whittled down to five models – or and even three. Because when the machine went on sale in 1969, it radically changed the world motorcycle panorama. If two wheeled machines were seen as a mere substitute for the car in previous decades, a spartan vehicle and, with rare exceptions, one of little fascination, a revolution took place with the arrival of the Four.
Now, the motorcycle – this motorcycle – is even preferred to an open sports car in that it is a vehicle of enthusiasts’ dreams due to its extremely modern appearance and high performance: for the first time, a production bike was capable of 200 kph. The technical content was extraordinary, with its 4-cylinder engine, which had previously been reserved for racing, the front disc brake and its five speed gearbox. On top of that, the machine had an electric starter, a feature that alone pushed many a “motorcyclist” into buying it, people who until that day would never have dreamt of giving up their 4-wheel transport the day before the Four came out. Competition was off-guard, so the arrival of the 750 meant the opposition immediately aged at least 10 years. And if that’s not a revolution…

LAMBRETTA GUIDA ILLUSTRATA ALL’IDENTIFICAZIONE/ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO THE IDENTIFICATION - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

This is a unique book of its kind, useful to all Lambretta owners and riders who mean to understand the evolution of the famous Innocenti scooter down to the smallest detail. After having digested all the technical information supplied by the concessionaires of the period, and having created thousands of illustrations showing all the versions produced by the Lambrate manufacturer between 1947 and 1971 piece by piece, the author has brought to life a guide that shows even the smallest modification carried out over the years on the various models that have appeared in the marketplace. Due to those illustrations, it is possible to see when a particular modification was introduced during the production cycle of an individual model. The book is also enriched by dozens of original documents of the period published in colour, production graphs and, no less important, all the official technical specifications of the Traffic Control Authority for the registration of Lambretta vehicles.

MILLE MIGLIA IMMAGINI DI UNA CORSA/ A RACE IN PICTURES - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

For 30 years from 1927 until 1957 the real Mille Miglia was the “race of excellence”. A unique event of over 1,600 kilometres across Italy, the stars of which were some of the world’s greatest car manufacturers, among them Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, Ferrari, Jaguar and Aston Martin. And their cars were driven, naturally, by some of the equally great champions of the time, like Tazio Nuvolari, Achille Varzi, through to Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss as well as Alberto Ascari, Clemente Biondetti, Piero Taruffi and many others. Count Giannino Marzotto won the race twice in Ferraris in 1950 and 1953 and said the Mille Miglia was “a synthesis of dynamism, freedom, challenge, courage and calculation”. The story, or better the stories, of that legendary race live again in this book, which tells the tales of the classic “Bresciana”, first of all through hundreds of pictures, most of them unpublished and coming from the Novafoto-Sorlini Archive, an important collection featuring the shots taken by the official race photographer Alberto Sorlini, between 1947 and 1957. The text has been written by Leonardo Acerbi, who also wrote “Mille Miglia Story 1927-1957”.

MILLE MIGLIA 1957 LE CLASSI MINORI/THE MINOR CLASSES - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

The 24th and final edition of the Mille Miglia, held on the 11th and 12th of May 1957, has passed into history above all due to the tragic circumstances of the accident involving de Portago and Nelson’s Ferrari 335S, which crashed in the latter stages of the race near Mantua. It was however, also a race characterised by a bitter struggle amongst the Maranello marque’s drivers, a duel that never happened with Moss and Jenkinson’s Maserati 450S and the last career win for Piero Taruffi. Behind all this, there was also another story, one equally as fascinating and rich in incident, that of the crews racing in the minor classes: from the Tuned Touring and the 750 classes to the Gran Turismo and Sport 750 and 1000 categories. This previously neglected story of "little" cars and almost unknown drivers is recounted by Carlo Dolcini, a painstaking and accurate historian, who has reconstructed in engrossing detail the “minor” episodes of those days, drawing on a wealth of photographic documentation.

MOMO ITALY 50 YEARS 1964-2014 - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

FOREWORD BY JOHN SURTEES

Man, racing driver, entrepreneur. Three terms that well describe Gianpiero Moretti, creator of Momo half a century ago, a company of Italian excellence in the production of steering wheels, racing suits and car components from 1964 to today. The historic marque decided to celebrate this important anniversary with a book that covers the salient stages of its development and consolidation, as well as Moretti’s long and prestigious motor racing career. The company’s association with Ferrari dates back to the ‘60s, when the Prancing Horse adopted Momo steering wheels for Formula 1; the prolific IMSA experience, first with the Porsche 935 and then the Ferrari 333 SP, to its current involvement in the official Momo team. Then there was the far-reaching production of steering wheels and rims for production cars and the lively, colourful advertising campaigns that branded half a century of communications. Those are just some of the chapters that comprise this book, born of close collaboration with the company.

TEMERARI: Ricordi da corsa dei "Cavalieri del rischio" - COPIA FIRMATA DA MAURO FORGHIERI! / SIGNED COPY BY MAURO FORGHIERI!

Foreword by Mauro Forghieri

Today, not only the drivers, racing cars, circuits, designers and technology have changed, the whole world has. But if you have just a little nostalgia for what once was, for that which you’ve experienced or even just heard people talk about, read ‘Temerari’ (The Daring), a nostalgic book devoted to the drivers and protagonists of the races of 1950-1980. People who raced for the sheer pleasure of it, for a win if they were really lucky, or maybe a record, a fastest lap time or an overtaking manoeuvre, which could sometimes be more important than a world title. People who looked death squarely in the face, because that’s what racing was like 30 years ago – even if many of them pretended not to know it. For the first time, this book publishes 60 interviews with Italian and foreign drivers whose destinies crossed at the time, people who survived the riskiest races of the 20th century.
