"In 1945, Enzo Ferrari, the onetime director of Scuderia Ferrari, Alfa Romeo’s fabled racing program, emerged from Alfa’s shadow to create his own legend. Out of the rubble of World War II, Ferrari established an auto works whose products would surpass anything before seen. Demand for handcrafted racing cars in postwar Italy, however, was slight. At the urging of a former colleague, Ferrari found a profitable niche for his creations in America–which still remains Ferrari’s biggest market. Now esteemed automotive journalist, historian, and photographer Dennis Adler presents Ferrari: The Road from Maranello–the stunningly illustrated story of one of the most coveted and recognized automobile lines in the world. Written with the full cooperation of the Ferrari works, this sumptuous book is illuminated throughout with more than 200 color and one hundred fifty archival black-and-white photos, some of which have never before been published. Featured are many legendary Ferraris from road and track: the Tipo 125, Ferrari’s debut production racer; the Farina Cabriolet, the first Ferrari for consumers; the 212 coupe (the Inter); the 365 GTB/4 Daytona; the 312 series cars that dominated world endurance racing in the early 1970s; the incomparable Testa Rossa and Berlinetta Boxer series; the brutally powerful F50, “the fastest road car ever”; and Ferrari’s Grand Prix and Formula One cars, driven by champions from Alberto Ascari to Niki Lauda to Michael Schumacher..." --Publisher description

Fred and Augie Duesenberg were a pair of driven, determined, nomadic masterminds. And to them, the automotive world will forever owe a great debt of gratitude. It took many years, and their achievements were hardly overnight successes, but eventually the brother created the ultimate in automotive engineering: the fabulous Duesenberg. Few were made, and only a relative handful remain. The Duesenbergs of the 1920s and '30s were so remarkable that they had little competition. With the help of E.I. Cord's fearless leadership and financial backing, the brilliant coachwork of the world's greatest bodybuilders, and Fred Duesenberg's mechanical genius, no two Duesenbergs were outfitted the same, and none have ever been truly rivaled. In Duesenberg, Dennis Adler has compiled the ultimate written and pictorial history of the car that was corrected billed as "The World's Finest Motor Car."
