Many years ago in Sicily, the legend of the “Coppa Florio” and “Targa Florio” road races became one of the most emotive and prestigious expressions in world motor racing, second only to the mythical Mille Miglia. “Coppa Florio” began in 1905 while “Targa Florio” in 1906, at the dawn of motoring civilisation and evolved over the years, hand-in-hand with the ever growing popularity of the car itself. The narrow and tortuous roads of the Sicilian mountains were testimony to the feats of Fiat, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Lancia, Ferrari and Porsche: manufacturers who alternated year after year at the top of the final classification of one of the toughest races in history, a race rich in allure and an ever present peril. On the occasion of the Targa Florio Centenary the book retraces this charming epics thanks to a vivid text and hundred of pictures, many of them unpublished. The work is complemented by a rich appendix (150 pages) reporting the complete results of all the Coppa and Targa Florio editions.

ABARTH 595-695

A “must-have” book for all enthusiasts of the small Fiats! This complete volume chronicles the why and how in 595/695 history, the technical specifications of each ‘derived’ version, the census of all 595/695s still in existence, and all races which saw it compete from 1964 to 1974. Plus “how to buy” and “how to restore” tips.


Some cars are able to transcend time to become real phenomena of their period. One member of this special category is the Volkswagen Beetle, the ingenious car designed by Ferdinand Porsche during the second half of the 1930s, of which more than 20 million examples were sold. And with the appearance of the New Beetle, the legend was renewed to live on to our days. That is why it seemed almost a duty to update the book on the Beetle that was first published in 1989 and was reprinted many times, recounting the story of this evergreen car from the prototypes right the way through all the successive versions. The book does not omit the various body builders who worked with this car, nor does it turn its back on the technical and commercial history of the New Beetle, which has its own section in the publication. This “phenomenon on four wheels” is illustrated with hundreds of pictures and drawings and is accompanied by an accurate and rigorous text.

ALLA DESTRA DEL DRAKE Ed. rilegata/Hardbound ed.

For 30 years Franco Gozzi worked side by side with Enzo Ferrari, first as a press officer and then as team manager, becoming much more than just an advisor and confidant. In all those years spent with the complex yet charismatic personality that was Enzo Ferrari, Gozzi was a privileged witness to events, anecdotes, motor sport triumphs and bitter defeats, not only concerning the Maranello company but also the world of motor sport itself. The crystal clear recollections of the Commendatore’s right hand man are used to reconstruct this long and fascinating story of happenings and, more than anything else, of the drivers - from Alberto Ascari to Lorenzo Bandini, Gilles Villeneuve to Michael Schumacher - as well as wealthy customers and show business personalities. All of them come alive again in this authoritative and compelling book illustrated with a vast collection of pictures and documents, many of them previously unpublished.
