FERRARI BOOK IS SURE TO
BE A WINNER. Fact. And the one
we're reviewing here is extra
special because it is a celebration
of Ferrari's 60th anniversary.
Ferrari 60th Anniversary: 1947 to 2007, works its way through the years,
starting with a conversation in the summer of 1947 between Gioachino Colombo
and Enzo Ferrari
who was unswervingly passionate about his dream to construct a racing car to
carry his name. Colombo was a gifted designer, who would be an important part
of that dream.
This lavish book was published to celebrate Maranello's diamond jubilee and
tells the fascinating story of Ferrari. With a separate chapter for each year
of the marque's existence, it chronicles the most significant events of that
whether human interest, motorsport achievements or the launch of a landmark
road car such as the Daytona in 1968. There is an introduction by Luciano Greggio.
The book also features an illustrated digest of other notable Ferrari happenings
including the most important races and episodes from motorsport and world events
which had an impact on the company. The authoritative text is supported with
more than 1,000 historic photographs, many in colour, together with technical
drawings which give a fascinating insight into the design process. Appendices
cover the men who were part of Ferrari's history: constructors' classification;
drivers' classification; production figures; sport and technical
directors; and works drivers.
There are highlights of Ferrari's calendar and the response to new models; period
images and historical information. Then there are the names synonymous with
Ferrari: Alberto Ascari, Juan Manuel, Fangio, etc. But the star is indisputably
the sinuously-curved, desirable and remarkable Ferrari.
Ferrari 60th Anniversary captures the buzz of excitement around the legendary
cars, such as the iconic 328 GTS and the celebrated races along with the thrill
of just being with a Ferrari.
Year after year for six decades, this glorious book chronicles the epic deeds
of the Ferrari marque and its captivating creator, Enzo Ferrari. The fascinating
text not only focuses on the principal happenings that have distinguished every
single season of the world's most famous racing and sports car constructor,
but also the technical and styling evolution of the cars from Maranello, as
well as the key developments in which the Prancing Horse has been involved.
Heavily illustrated and handsomely designed, this book is a 'don't miss' for
all Ferrari enthusiasts and will look great on your coffee table
where you can enjoy dipping into it to your heart's content. A crowning Christmas
gift for Ferrari lovers.
