‘The hippies wanted peace and love. We wanted Ferraris, blondes, and switchblades.’ – Alice Cooper
Published on the occasion of the Design Museum's headline exhibition in November 2017 this substantial work provides exceptional insights into the extraordinary company that emerged as World War II receded in Italy, combining collegiality, an almost religious dedication, and dictatorship in equal parts. Above all, it was impelled by the remorseless ambition of its founder Enzo Ferrari. Beautifully illustrated with full-size wooden 'masters' from Ferrari's bodywork designers, engineering drawings, and styling sketches, as well as memorabilia, documents, and personal items; this in-depth exploration of Ferrari - the man, company, cars, and clientele – reveals what goes into the making of, many would argue, the world's most desirable car brand.
The pages include beautiful, organic photos of the iconic sports car, from the first 911 R in 1967 to today’s 2017 911 R
