Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two books in one make this a double delight for car fans! Open this lavish, oversize volume and youand#39;ll find two bound-in books: one covers the history and the main stages in the evolution of the legendary Ferrari brand. The other features incredible four-panel, foldout pages presenting 40 of the most emblematic Ferraris of all time. Incredibly rendered, these high-definition images show every last detail of the selected models, which include the 250 GTO (1962), the 275 GTB (1964), 330 P3 (1966), F355 Berlinetta (1994), the 430 Scuderia (2007), and the P540 SuperFast Aperta (2009). Tables contain all the carsand#39; main specifications. Itand#39;s an irresistible journey through roaring engines, luxury, and fascinating facts.

Synopsis:

For more than 60 years, Porsche has been a legend in the automobile industry. Journalist Peter Ruch traces the history of the innovative company, from its origins and prewar years through the creation of its greatest vehicles, including the famous 356, iconic 911, and 917 racecar. A remarkable collection of photos, and information from the Porsche Museum, makes this an auto lover's dream book.
