Alfa Romeo Arese

by Patrick Dasse

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.

Rallye Automobile Monte Carlo, Porsche 1952–1982

by Patrick Dasse & Maurice Louche

More photo album than rally analysis, these books will suck you in! Cars, people, interesting locations—and buckets o’ snow. Obviously all seen through Porsche-colored glasses.

The Ferrari Book: Passion for Design 

by Jürgen Lewandowski

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.

Porsche Milestones

by Wilfried Müller

These days, Porsche claims to have the highest profit per unit sold of any car company in the world. That won’t make buyers feel good but this book shows what Porsche does with all that loot—develop more stuff that stretches the envelope.

Legendary: The Porsche 919 Hybrid Project

by Heike Hintzsch

In 2011 Porsche returned to the World Endurance Championship and vowed to win Le Mans. They did. More than once. This is the story.

Abarth: Racing Cars – Collection 1949–1974

by Franz Steinbacher

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.

The Aston Martin Book

by René Staud, Paolo Tumminelli

If it’s specs and serious history you want, this is not the book. But if a car’s shape makes you lightheaded and its “image” excites you, this is the book.

The Porsche Art Book

by Edwin Baaske (Editor)

Even if Porsches leave you cold and you dismiss the whole “car as art” issue as contrived, you will want to meet these artists and see how they work and think.

Zagato Milano 1919–2009, The Official Book

This book does not come right out and say what it is. Neither do the press release or the advertising copy. If you know of Nada’s other Zagato books you would assume this new one to be along the lines of those others. It isn’t.

Classic Cars Review: The Best Classic Cars on the Planet

by Michael Görmann, editor

The book isn’t so much about the “best cars” but why anyone wants to collect and use and preserve anything.

Deutscher Automobil-Rennsport 1946–1955

by Reinald Schumann

Zero-Hour means the immediate postwar years, the years in which war-ravaged Germany clawed its way back into the civilized—and mechanized—world. A-racing we must go!

Probably the most thorough book to date, with hundreds of photos, many of which new to the record.

Details – Legendary Sports Cars Up Close: 1965–1969

by Wilfried Müller

“Up close” means just that—views from angles or in settings you don’t often see in books. And for American readers many of the 60 cars shown here will be outliers they’ve probably not seen in real life anyway.
