Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No other cars embody automotive passion better than those produced by Ferrari. From the record-setting Formula One race cars produced by Scuderia Ferrari to the exquisite road cars created in Maranello, Italy, Ferrari has produced some of the most sensuous vehicles ever created.

Exquisitely illustrated, Ferrari: Stories from Those Who Lived the Legend tells the complete story of a car like no other. Sixty years after Ferrari blazed onto the scene, this big book takes us back to the world where the car was created. Master photographer and automotive writer John Lamm tells the Ferrari story through the words of the people who made the history. In extensive interviews with those who lived the story of Ferrari, from its founding days right up to our own, Lamm gives us a thrilling, behind-the-scenes look at how automotive history was made. Virtually an oral history of the world's most iconic sports car, Ferrari: Stories from Those Who Lived the Legend is also a treasury of historic and detailed modern images--what any reader lucky enough to open it up might expect--a hell of a ride.

Synopsis:

A virtual oral history of Ferrari, with breathtaking new photos and the behind-the-scene stories.

Synopsis:

No other sports cars embody automotive passion better then those produced by Ferrari. From the record-setting Formula One race cars produced by Scuderia Ferrari to the exquisite road cars created in Maranello, Italy, Ferrari has produced some of the most sensuous vehicles ever created.

Ferrari: Stories from Those Who Lived the Legend tells the complete story of this fabled marque. Long-time Road & Track writer and photographer John Lamm sought out the men and women who breathed life into the legend—famed racers like Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney, Phil Hill, Dario Franchetti, Sam Posey, and Carroll Shelby; designers Sergio Scaglietti, Giorgetto Giugiaro, and Sergio Pininfarina; and Ferrari fans like Ralph Lauren—letting each tell their personal Ferrari story. These first-hand tales join with historical photography and Lamm’s beautiful images to make Ferrari: Stories from Those Who Lived the Legend a look into Ferrari like no other.

Synopsis:

“Every detail on the car is an art piece as far as I’m concerned.”

—Ralph Lauren, Designer

 

“To Mr. Chinetti, a car was a Ferrari. There was no other car. If they weren’t Ferraris, they were just contraptions.”

—Sam Posey, Artist

 

“Maranello is still a village, it’s still Maranello; it’s not New York or Rome, and so our link with the territory remains very strong.”

—Luca di Montezemolo, Chairman, Ferrari S.p.A.

 

Exquisitely illustrated, Ferrari: Stories from Those Who Lived the Legend tells the complete story of the world’s most famed sports and racing car that is like no other. Through extensive interviews, long-time Road & Track photographer and writer John Lamm reveals the full Ferrari story through the first-person accounts of the race drivers, engineers, designers, and owners who have lived its history.
