Sharknose V6 – Ferrari 156, Ferrari 246SP & Ferrari 196SP


by Jörg-Thomas Födisch, Rainer Rossbach

The 1960s are an era rich in motorsports glory and drama. Before the Ford-Ferrari wars became a thing it was Lotus and BRM that showed Ferrari up. Lots of photos, many unpublished before, and a context-rich story distinguish this book.

Die Jean Bugatti Story, Eine Dokumentation

by Horst Schultz

Ettore Bugatti’s eldest son was groomed to be the future patron, but he died young. This book makes the point that he influenced both the era before his death and the one/s after it much more than other books allow.

Alfa Romeo Berlina

by Patrick Dasse

In terms of size, creature comforts, and road manners this four-door saloon has an utterly European character. Americans never did quite get it. From prototype to plain vanilla production cars to Specials, this book uses period photos to tell its story.

Formula Helmet 1969–1999

by Bruno Bayol

A very different way to look at motorsports history. Helmets are about more than crash protection or being a billboard for sponsors. Plus, this is a spectacularly well-made and -designed book.

Legendary: The Porsche 919 Hybrid Project

by Heike Hientzsch

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

Stars & Sportcars

by Marianne zu Sayn-Wittgenstein

Racing photos, sure, but a whole lot more. Here are photos by someone who knew how to “see”—and not just with the eye.

BMW i: Visionary Mobility

by Andreas Braun 

A year before this book came out, BMW i became the “official mobility partner” of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Music and Arts?? Well, BMW wants to win hearts and minds—the future isn’t here yet, its shape not yet locked in, and it involves a whole lot more than dreaming up sleek cars.

Bugatti taucht auf

by Dea Loher

This very serious German novel is based on two real-life events: [1] a senseless murder in a town near [2] the lake on whose bottom a Bugatti is waiting for someone with enough of a reason to attempt raising it.

Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 / 1967

by Patrick Dasse & Martin Übelher

An important race car—whose recorded history was heretofore afflicted by a dearth of reliable data such as chassis numbers or even driver names, making the identification of historic photos so difficult that previous authors were severely handicapped.

Alfa Romeo Junior Z

by Patrick Dasse

The “Z” stands for Zagato so that alone should widen the book’s appeal beyond those Alfisti who want to bone up on a low-production, lightweight, distinctively styled 1970s car. Besides, where did the modern Honda CRX get its inspiration from?

Neo Classics: From Factory to Legendary in 0 Seconds

by René Staud & Jürgen Lewandowski

If it doesn’t look as if there will be a Bugatti or McLaren or Pagani under the Christmas tree—ask for this book as a consolation price. Its cover is so glam it doesn’t even need wrapping paper!

Mr Radley Drives to Vienna

by John Kennedy

Look closely at that cover. Looks like a color print of a b/w photo, right? No! Everything is re-staged—a hundred years apart.
