MOTORI AD ALTA POTENZA SPECIFICA Le basi concettuali della tecnica da competizione - Edizione riveduta e corretta (2016)

Having first appeared in 1995, “Engines at Specific High Power” was written by engineers Giacomo Augusto Pignone and Ugo Romolo Vercelli and is much more than a book of engine technology. From the first time it came out, it distinguished itself for the ample in-depth conceptual-philosophic aspects that constitute the peculiarities of major interest of this book, as well as being an unquestioned text of reference in its specific environment. Now, the book has been reprinted for the fourth time. This long-awaited revised and corrected edition, enriched by the notes and indications provided by Pignone, explains the technology of racing cars with all the fundamental parameters that govern the way an engine works and is embellished by important contributions which, as well as updating previously discussed aspects, expand the contents of the work. Among others, there are a number of sections in which the book looks at subjects associated with the mechanics in the light of evolution that has taken place in recent years in the engine field: transmissions, electronic management, the choice of materials, the specific high powered diesel engine and the hydrogen vehicle. In going into the various questions, the authors have attempted to give access to many subjects which are not simple and have been the prerogative of just a few people who work in the industry, while maintaining absolute precision in the presentation.

CAFE RACERS Moto speciali e anime ribelli tra Italia e Usa

Italy and the United States, philosophies a world apart in their approach to the motorcycle. Especially when it comes to transforming one into something unique. The profound sense of this difference has as its ingredients the stories, habits, tics and idiosyncrasies of 20 of the world most famous tuners and preparers. Authors Fabio Cormio and Jeffrey Zani have chosen them from both sides of the Atlantic for their often surprising human affairs and for the results achieved in the ultra-special universe of - the “special”. From their meetings emerge genuine portraits, sometimes surreal, of people who have put the Cafe Racers before anything else. Stories of devouring passion, like that of New Yorker Kenny Cummings, who says, “I think about speed all day. If I have to walk from the kitchen to the lounge, I look for the ideal trajectories”. Twenty stories in a meeting/clash between the multi-faceted American and Italian philosophies are compared here. The first, a result of a rediscovered biker and hipster culture, the other living on the slipstream of a long tradition, but at the same time contaminated by fashion – and sometimes by business. Each chapter is introduced by one of the authors’ anecdotes of the background touched on during the interview and, for each personality, there is a selection of indispensible pictures to be able to put a face to the protagonist.

LAND ROVER. Serie "Le vetture che hanno fatto la storia"

The Land Rover was conceived by the Rover Company back in 1948 as an answer to the famous Willys Jeep, which was used throughout the Second World War. The Land Rover soon became an institution and an ambassadress of the British automotive industry across the world. Almost immediately, the potential of this small and agile multi-use vehicle was recognised and the groups of its users spread to the military, fire services, fuel companies; in practice to anyone who needed to go off-road. It didn’t take long for the success of the Land Rover to develop and diversify into numerous versions, bringing to life an entire family of variants, after which many body builders created even more special series, often single examples. Land Rover was able to save itself from the serious crisis that hit the British motor industry in the ‘70s, evolving through to today with the Range Rover and the Defender family vehicles. There was no way such important vehicles couldn’t be in our series on the “Vehicles that made History” in a book that covers the genesis of the Willys Jeep to the various series that have spelt out the production of this legendary vehicle, including all the military versions and those built overseas.

ALFA ROMEO DUETTO E SPIDER

Few cars in the history of the automobile have enjoyed such a long life as the Alfa Romeo 1600 Spider – known to most as the Duetto – that made its first appearance at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show. Created by the magical Pininfarina, who had already designed the Giulietta Spider, Alfa’s new discovery immediately transformed itself into an icon due to the fascination of its flowing lines and the reliability of its much tested mechanics. About a decade later, in the mid-Seventies, the Spider was given a stubby tail, which would accompany the Alfa Romeo two-seaters to the early Nineties. Fifty years after that 1966 Geneva Motor Show that saw the baptism of the Duetto series, it seemed inevitable that a new book would be devoted to this historic car, so beautiful and attractive.

AGOSTINI AL TOURIST TROPHY: OLTRE LA LEGGENDA

Two legends meet again. Giacomo Agostini, the most victorious motorcycle racer of all time with 15 world titles to his credit, and the Tourist Trophy, the oldest, most prestigious and dangerous motorcycle race in the world, which has been run since 1907 over the mountain circuit of Britain’s Isle of Man. Agostini’s 10 TT victories between 1965 and 1972 are the most important, prestigious and breath-taking results ever achieved by the great champion from Lovere which, for the first time, open up previously unpublished diaries that tell the stories of his great feats on the island. From duels with the legendary Mike Hailwood through to the dramatic 1972 race when, after his 10th win in the Senior, the Italian ace decided for safety reasons to finish forever with the TT after the death of his racing motorcyclist friend Gilberto Parlotti. Together with journalist Mario Donnini, the writer who has watched and published more than anyone else on this incredible race, “Ago”, the Italian rider who won more at the TT than anyone, reveals himself in the most terrible yet fascinating race in the world. The result is an anxiously awaited book which is a “must” for all motorcycling and racing enthusiasts.

MOMO ITALY 50 YEARS 1964-2014 - COPIA FIRMATA DA JOHN SURTEES / SIGNED COPY BY JOHN SURTEES!

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.

ABARTH ALL THE CARS

ON THE OCCASION OF THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF KARL ABARTH’S BIRTH There are names that alone express concepts, lifestyles and philosophies better than any lengthy explanation. That Abarth is one of these is a conviction by no means restricted to expert writers or specialist journalists. In the case of Abarth, perceived by enthusiasts as a synonym of performance, speed, agility and emotions, confirmation has been provided by the Fiat Group’s extensive research ahead of the major relaunch of the Scorpion marque. Given the current situation, with the new Abarths returning to the road ready to “sting”, it is an ideal time for this book that sets out to reconstruct the story that led to the birth of a legend. Subdivided model by model, the text is based on straightforward, effective descriptions, backed up by contemporary photos in black and white and colour. The author has successfully illustrated the motivations that led Carlo Abarth to create something unique in the automotive world, at the cost of sacrifices, failures and disappointments such as the numerous custom models built in the early years.
