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:

Harley-Davidson is the king of motorcycles, the one every rider dreams of owning. This lavish volumeandmdash;with more than 20 foldoutsandmdash;celebrates the American company and its legendary models, from its first single-cylinder bike in 1903 to the modern, large V-twin series products. These V-twin engines have propelled families of Harley-Davidsons with prestigious names such as Electra Glide and Softail that continue to thrill cyclists. Every model has its own story, and the ones told here give a surprisingly human dimension to Harley-Davidsons, and also provide insight into their technical data.

Synopsis:

From the first experiments on two wheels to today's hypertrophic creations, Motorcycles illustrates the evolution of this much-loved machine. Through stunning images, and foldout spreads, it showcases the earliest Harley-Davidsons; the Honda and Kawasaki from the 1970s and 1980s; the jewels of Italian design, such as the Ducati 916 and the Guzzi GT 500 Norge; through the latest models. Outfitted with detailed diagrams and data sheets, it captures the essence of motorcycling.
