Ferrari has produced some of the most beautiful sports cars and racing cars ever seen. What is its secret? By uncovering and analysing the design history of numerous models of Ferrari created over six decades, this beautifully presented book provides fascinating and innovative new angles about some of the most revered cars the world has ever seen.
The backbone of this exploration of Ferrari design is the story of the company's evolution from front-engined to mid-engined cars in the 1960s and 1970s, and then back again to front-engined designs since the 1990s. Within this structure, the book looks closely at the styling themes and inspirations of individual models, accompanied by commentary from experienced designers.
The finest ltalian automotive design studios vied with each other for the opportunity to put their stamp on the cars from Maranello, but one name - Pininfarina - came to dominate by the late 1950s. Thereafter the wonderful creativity of Pininfarina established such a successful design "language" for Ferrari's cars that other studios rarely got a look-in. Pininfarina people, indeed, have made an important contribution to the author's research for this book.
This book, which features intriguing insights along with many previously unseen images, including period illustration, is essential reading for all Ferrari enthusiasts.
