The book retraces the story of the �P-Wagen�, a genial revolutionary project of the Thirties signed by Ferdinand Porsche on the behalf of Auto Union. These cars were destined to compete with the Mercedes-Benz and the Alfa Romeos in the Grand-Prix races of those days. After many achievements, the four rings-mark disappeared, overwhelmed by the war to revive under the name of Audi in the Sixties. Audi restored a specimen of this glorious monocoque, a sort of forerunner to the Formula One modern cars.

Bernd Rosemeyer (1909-1938) is certainly one of the greatest drivers ever to compete in Grands Prix. In two-and-a-half years from May 1935 until October 1937 he entered in 33 races, won 10 and came second six times. He always raced the ponderous and difficult rear-engined Auto Union conceived by Ferdinand Porsche, which enabled him to exceed 400 km/h during a record attempt on a public road closed to traffic.Tazio Nuvolari considered the German “my most formidable adversary”. Rosemeyer died in 1938 while trying to break a flying start one kilometre record, which his great rival Rudolf Caracciola had just established in a Mercedes-Benz.Cesare De Agostini is the author of this first biography in the Italian language on this legendary ace, about whom he offers a splendid, rounded portrait, bringing into focus the pleasant personality, carefree attitude and the irresistible ability to always compete at the fastest speed possible on every circuit whatever the weather conditions. The 11th title in the “Racing Lives” series, this book and its collection of exceptional pictures enables the reader to relive the life of one of the most extraordinary champions of all time, who is still admired today by an incredible number of enthusiasts.

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.
