by Alfredo Zanellato Vignale
From lowly mass transport to the most rarefied of super exotics, Vignale had a quite unusually prolific output. This book by the founder’s nephew is probably the first time a thoroughly researched overview has been published.
by Simon Moore
The third of three books about important prewar racing Alfas. Very thorough, very pricy, very much worth it. Even covers Alfa GP-engined powerboats.
by John Tipler
Lovely car, lovely book, neither of which exists in great numbers. This model is still relatively affordable and the book will give you a hundred reasons for wanting one.
by Brandes Elitch
From show car to scrap yard to glorious restoration this book unravels the history and mystery of the one-off that was Loewy’s rolling calling card at the 1960 Paris Motor Show to advertise his own brand.

Yes, there still are new things to say about Lamborghini! If not new then better. Between the text and the photos, this is one fine book.

For a few years now, the GT version of this late 1960s car is making everyone who once derided it as an inferior Ferrari look foolish and requires larger and larger checks to buy. If one is in your future, this book is a must.
by Daniele Pozzi
