The fantastic epoch of American automobiles is narrated and illustrated in this detailed and fascinating book, in which all the cars’ grandeur explodes, showing the strange reality of the personalised versions built in both small workshops and the hotrods. The work gives an exclusive historic and technical panoramic view of 218 cars, among them the most beloved of the people of the New World, who have lived the automobile phenomenon in a much different form in relation to those that fire the enthusiasm of the impassioned people of Italy and the rest of Europe. The book also includes detailed technical specifications, production data and in-depth evaluation of each of these models.

Rita and Roberto Chiodi were among the 130 dare-devils aboard a car that was at least 50 years old and competed in the historic Peking-Paris Rally, which commemorated the centenary of the famous race. It was the first time an international competition had ventured along the harsh original 1907 route of the winning Itala and its driver Prince Scipione Borghese. Stage after stage, the Alfa’s had to take on stone covered surfaces, river crossings, the sands of the Gobi Desert and the Steppes of Siberia before reaching the motorways of the West and their triumph in Paris. The story of the couple’s participation is told with irony and love as far as the true protagonist is concerned: the 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta TI, their companion in life and adventure. This is a book as devoted to the enthusiasts of the marque, as it is to lovers of journeys in lands far away.

“A four-wheeled platform with an umbrella on top”, designed for customers who live in the French countryside, who needed two seats with their cargo of products to sell at the market. That is how Citroën conceived the car that became famous for its robustness and reliability, which undertook incredible tasks throughout the world, even achieved motor sport success and was able to transcend the history of the car and social trends. Seventy years after the 2CV’s introduction, this book enables readers to live once more the successful career of this grand utility vehicle, which was able to go way beyond its original role as a car of the people to become a symbol, a standard bearer for more than a generation, a consecrated myth of practicality and, perhaps, a legend on four wheels. More than a car, a way of life.
