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.
Delage, Records et Grand Prix
by Daniel Cabart & Sébastien Faurès Fustel de Coulanges
The marque went racing within a year of its founding. Outside of Delage circles it is not fully appreciated just how competent their racing cars were. This book puts one of the three distinct periods of success under the microscope. And we mean microscope.
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.
The Racers: The Personal Scrapbook of Al Satterwhite
by Al Satterwhite
A scrapbook is not a museum show or a historical treatise so calibrate your expectations accordingly. Neither the era nor the photographer need any explanation/justification: expect to discover cool things.
by Jürgen Lewandowski and Stefan Bogner
Produced for just two short years, the 904 broke new ground, did its job very well, and looked supremely good. This book is an homage in mostly pictures and it too does its job very well and looks supremely good.
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.
The Swiss Wiz: Edi Wyss, Ein Leben mit Renn- und Sportwagen
by Edi Wyss and Christoph Ditzler
If you travel in certain circles you know this name. Even with a couple hundred well-captioned photos of cars and places you’ll recognize, you’ll wish you spoke German and hear him tell his story in his own voice.
Horst H. Baumann – Lichtjahre / Light Years
Once internationally renowned, Baumann is remembered, if at all, mostly for his pioneering work with lasers and light sculpture. But once upon a time, if only for a mere five years, he turned his artistic mind to motorsports photography, and was among the first to do it in color.
312 P: One of Ferrari’s Most Beautiful Racers
by Gianni Agnesa
Enzo Ferrari, that arch proponent of “function over form,” is said to have made one exception: the 312 P. It may only be an anecdote but what facts are known about this car are in this book, along with fantastic period photos.
Alfa Romeo Tipo 105 RHD
by Patrick Dasse
Righthand-drive cars involve more than simply sticking the steering wheel on the other side of the cockpit. A whole lot of other engineering has to happen, much of which not visible. Until now.
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.
