This volume is an exciting new book for all Ferrari and car racing enthusiasts. Peter Coltrin was a photographer who had the privilege to work with the Prancing Horse company: in the crucial and suggestive years from 1954 to 1959 his pictures recorded for posterity the cars and the drivers of the Maranello firm. This book, enriched with stunning pictures still unpublished, transmits the reader instantly the energy and the action of the Ferrari racing team in the years when it was battling on two fronts: Formula 1 and Sport-prototype Championship. Special cloth-bound edition of 1500 Arab-numbered copies.
The book tells in depth the fascinating story of the 1955 World Sports Car Season, which is considered by many to be quite simply the sportsï¿½s ultimate year. The 1955 season proved to be amazing, offering great racing worldwide with the finest drivers at the wheel of such sensationalcars as the Ferrari 121LM, Jaguar D-Type, Mercedes 300 SLR, Aston Martin DB3S and Maserati 300S. This outstanding book covers little-known races as well as major events, and describes with great accuracy that yearï¿½s achievements and dramas.
Unique Motor Books are compiled from the UK magazine “Autocar”, “Autocourse” , “Sporting Motorist” and from a wide variety of other magazines from around the world. This book is a portfolio of contemporary race reports and summaries tellling the story of this race when it was dominated by Ferrari and Porsche.
The authors tell the story of a boy born in 1900, who adores engines: Ezio Berné. He barracked for Tazio Nuvolari and to a fate’s joke he ran with one of his cars, Alfa Romeo 1750, in a short agonistic season, interrupted by the Second World War. At those days there wasn’t specialization. You left from home with the car to reach the fields of the competition and then after the race again for home, with or without trophies in the boot. A goliardic world that today doesn’t exist any more, where the word friendship had still its full meaning. One ran for love of adventure, to have some fun and for the pleasure to be together. This is a true story where memories and anecdotes, that are indelibly impressed in the protagonist’s mind, re-emerge. Through short and fluent chapters we retrace some most important stops that show the car racing, from Mille Miglia to Targa Florio, from Enzo Ferrari to Achille Varzi, from Tazio Nuvolari to Gabriele D’Annunzio. In this work there is also the rebuilding with the same precision and enthusiasm of big speed-engine designing events of international and local importance, remembering always the subject of the story that, like a film, bases itself on the two main characters: Ezio Berné and Alfa Romeo 1750.
Expanded edition in the contents, in the interview and in the original movies of the reces.

Ferrari is the quintessential bearer of Rosso Corsa, Italian Racing Red, in the 21st Century. Rightly so, because Ferrari Grand Prix cars have represented Italy in Formula 1 racing since the World Championship was established in 1950. But as Karl Ludvigsen explains in this stunning new book, there is much more to Rosso Corsa than Ferrari. In the sport’s early years the power to reckon with was Fiat, who also set the pace after World War I. Then a feisty newcomer, Alfa Romeo, carried the Italian flag alongside, the Maserati brothers into the 1930s. Two racing drivers, Felice Nazzaro and Vincenzo Lancia, created their own car marques, one of which stormed into prominence in the 1950s. Italian drivers were to the fore with Tazio Nuvolari, Achille Varzi, Nino Farina, Gigi Villoresi and father and son Antonio and Alberto Ascari. Great races such as the Targo Florio and Mille Miglia, and the iconic circuit Monza, hosted many titanic battles. From Ferrari to Maserati, the Italians have certainly held a prime position in world motor racing. These colourful contestants and many others come to life in the pages of this fabulous volume which are redolent with all the glamour and excitement of fast Italian cars and drivers!
Covers the story of 4 Ferrari 375 cars that came to Argentina in the 50s to race. These are chassis numbers 0358, 0370, 0374 and 0398 AM. Car by car, statistics, high qualità pictures. Limited 400 copies edition book.
Many of the Ferrari single seaters and sports racers that won world championships were born of the imagination of Mauro Forghieri and designed by him. That was the case with the John Surtees 1964 158 F1 and the unbeatable Ts of the Lauda-Regazzoni era. The same can be said of the 250 P, the 330 P3 and P4, as well, naturally, as the 312 ‘PB’, the unquestioned protagonists among the sports racing cars of the 1960s and 1970s. The life of the outstanding Mauro Forghieri is told in this book, in which noted stories, especially those that have remained unpublished for years, intertwine in an riveting narrative, supported by a wealth of absolutely unpublished illustrations, a large portion of which come from the publisher’s archives.
This book comes from the ambitious project of the author to provide the intense and vivid insight of the glittering world of motor racing. Enriched with nearly 200 images, articles, interviews and evidence gathered at the four corners of the globe, this is perhaps the most evocative reconstruction of motor racing of the ’60s. With foreword by Enzo Ferrari.
Since racing began, the Italians have been passionately involved with racing motor cars in their adopted national colour of brilliant red. Famous marques such as Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Lancia and Ferrari, all illustrate the beauty and appeal of these exotic machines as driven by Nuvolari, Fangio, Ascari, Hawthorn and Collins, Lauda, Scheckter and Stirling Moss.
Now you can relive the excitement and mystique of these glorious machines and drivers from the era before the cars were covered in commercial sponsorship.
Rare archive complements modern day footage with modern on-board cameras which let you experience the thrill of driving a Ferrari or Maserati to the limit.
