A volume devoted to Giugiaro and Italdesign could hardly not be included in the Masterpieces of style series. Giugiaro is one of the most prestigious names in the history of automotive design, synonymous with iconic cars such as the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT and Alfetta, the Volkswagen Golf, the Audi 80, the Fiat Panda, Uno and Punto, the Lancia Delta, Thema and Prisma and the Maserati Bora, Ghibli and Merak, to mention but a few of the most successful designs to carry the Giugiaro name. Born in 1938 at Garessio in the province of Turin, Giugiaro honed his professional skills at Bertone and then at Ghia before setting up on his own when founding Giugiaro Italdesign in 1968. Today the firm is as active as ever and has been responsible for concept cars such as the Caimano, the Iguana and the Canguro, all based on Alfa Romeo mechanicals, and the Asso di Picche and the Quadri on respectively Audi and BMW chassis. This monograph covers this long technical and stylistic history, drawing on a clear, comprehensive text and hundreds of photographs, many of which previously unpublished.

BIZZARRINI: A TECHNICIAN DEVOTED TO MOTOR-RACING - COPIA FIRMATA DALL’AUTORE! / SIGNED COPY BY THE AUTHOR!

Giotto Bizzarrini is recognized as one of history’s greatest engineers. His resume includes numerous legendary Ferraris such as the 250 GTO, the first Lamborghini V12, the Iso Rivolta GT, the mid-engine AMX/3, and numerous sports and GT cars made under his own name. This is the inside story on those machines and many more, as told by the engineer and numerous people who worked with him. The reader will be taken for a wild ride, experiencing the famous Ferrari "Walkout" in 1961, what it was like being the ultimate engineering "hired gun" for GT constructors such as Lamborghini, Iso and ASA, and then getting the inside track on Bizzarrini’s own cars and company. Find out why he considers the Bizzarrini Strada a "second series GTO," the story behind models such as the mid-engine P538, and how his company unraveled, thanks to his endless pursuit for competition victory and getting in bed with the wrong business partners. Supplementing the rich text are numerous period photos that have never been published and appendices with model specifications and chassis numbers.

ZAGATO MASTERPIECES OF STYLE

It was in 1919 that Ugo Zagato established Carrozzeria U. Zagato & C., a business that acquired great fame in just a few years among the numerous car manufacturers of the period, first of all Alfa Romeo, which entrusted the Milanese body stylist with designing and building the body of the unforgettable 6C 1750, as it did its 8C 2900 that appeared in the ‘30s. From then on, the famous marque became synonymous with style – not only in Italy – designing a series of masterpieces including the Lancia Aprilia Sport, the various Panoramic cars of the immediate post-war period, the Aston Martin DB4, the Alfa Romeo SZ and TZ, the Lancias Fulvia, Flavia and Flaminia and many more. From the ‘90s Zagato re-emerged as an atelier, designing small production run cars and sometimes one-offs for its wealthy clients. Luciano Greggio, the automobile historian, covers the fascinating story of this prestigious body stylist and has also written other books in the series as well as Zagato. The series, to be published soon, includes books on Touring, Bertone, Pininfarina, Giugiaro, Vignale and Ghia.
