Italian cars often offer a bit more fun than their competitors and this independent from the vehicle’s price class. This book presents some of the industry’s pioneers, as Enrico Bernardi, Alexandre Darracq, Nicola Romeo, Enzo Ferrari and many more. Without them cars would be different today, as one step let to another and their creations inspired automobile companies worldwide.


Different chapters are not only about these individuals and their cars, but also the cultural background, which supported the development.

Some of the tales are directly related to particular automobiles as the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale or the Ferrari GTO.

A book about entrepreneurs, sportsmen and adventurers!
