Ferrari 60th Anniversary
Ferrari 60th Anniversary ANY FERRARI BOOK IS SURE TO
BE A WINNER. Fact. And the one
'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 season
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.
