If the Montreal is famous for anything it is the company it keeps in its designer’s portfolio. Gandini penned designs as different as the immortal Miura and Countach, and closer to this car the Marzal and Carabo concepts. This book presents period photos.

The most successful Ferrari ever run in Prototype racing was only ever campaigned by privateers. And only 40 were built. Of which only 27 raced. Why are there no serious books about this?? Well, now there is.

An Arese is not an Alfa model but the place where they were made, and this book contains hundreds of archival photos from AR about it.

Is there such a thing as too many Ferraris? Or too many Ferrari books? Nah. But this 10-pounder has challenges beyond its mere heft. Those Michael Zumbrunn photos, though. Bellisima.

This is a look at a highly curated Swiss collection of mostly racing Abarths, and in telling their story the book also gives a good idea of what made the cars and the company so special.

Some US metropolitan areas have larger populations of Ferraris than the 65 examples of sports, race or road cars that went Down Under between 1952 and 1972 when the Australian Ferrari Register was founded.

Every minute you spend reading this review, Ferrari will sell 100 items with their name on them. Not cars—they, intentionally, hover around the 8000 per year mark—but “stuff,” from socks to books to engines for Maseratis. What is it about Ferrari that so many want to buy into its cachet? 1000 pages offer some answers.

From junior stylist to Managing Director at Pininfarina, high-level positions at Fiat and Ferrari, his own design-engineering-architecture firm—this fabulously illustrated book offers rich detail of a rich life.
You know it when you see it—which is the whole point of heritage cars like Mini, Bettle, and Fiat 500. How do the designers and brand managers—and even the engineers—go about extracting the DNA of a past success? This book shows it.
