For tens of millions of people around the world, a single name evokes the world of speed - Enzo Ferrari. Today's Formula One would be unthinkable without the presence of the Ferrari cars on the grid. Win or lose, Ferrari attract more fans than all the other teams combined. And the cars unique appeal - their mystique, their myth - has its origins in the story of one man with a dictator's will and the cunning of a Machiavelli. Going back to the origins of "The Old Man", tracing his remarkable rise to prominence, and using sources which have hitherto remained silent, Richard Williams tells the story of a man who was one of the key figures of sport in the twentieth century, and whose influence over his sport is undiminished today, more than a decade after his death.
“To nearly every motoring enthusiast the name Ferrari means, and has meant for some years, the essence of motoring in the truly grand manner, the art and science of automobile engineering at its greatest. This book is the autobiography of Enzo Ferrari, the man who has been responsible for the cars which have achieved more in a shorter time than almost any other marque. It is the autobiography of a man who has known the great and who deserves his own share of greatness in motoring and motor racing history... A remarkable book, this; as well as throwing a clear and fascinating light on the drivers, the teams, the manufacturers, the problems of racing car team management, it deals also—in humorous fashion—with the people who buy Ferraris. And, perhaps unintentionally, Ferrari has drawn a clear portrait of himself.” (1962 – Stirling Moss). - Originally published in Italy as Le Mie Gioie Terribili
"Eine Inspiration für Manager und alle, die sich für Enzo Ferraris Leben interessieren." Geboren 1898 in der norditalienischen Stadt Modena, Enzo Ferrari lebte seinen Traum und gründete den bekanntesten Sportwagen Hersteller der Welt. Das Buch analysiert, wie er dieses Ziel mit modernen Ideen und Konzepten erreichte. Oder wie Führungstheorien, Emotionelle Intelligenz, Unternehmensethik, Kundenorientierung und Nachhaltigkeit schon Anfang des letzten Jahrhunderts existierte. In seinen eigenen Worten, und Parallelen zur italienischen Geschichte aufzeigend, dachte er, dass er in der falschen Zeit lebte. Aber wenn wir Il Commendatores Sonnenbrille abnehmen, sehen wir, dass er ein überraschend moderner Unternehmenslenker war, welcher bewusst oder nicht, die aktuellsten Unternehmens- und Führungsmodelle benutzte. Dies bestätigt durch Schlüsselentscheidungen seines Unternehmens, inklusive der Rennabteilung. Dieses Buch ist die sechste englische Ausgabe inklusive einem deutschen Vorwort.
A limited edition of 1500 copies. Grand Prix Ferrari is a brilliantly comprehensive, accurate account of the most important team in the history of motor racing. The highly readable and informative text is supported by over 200 interesting, and often striking, photographs.

Based on years of original research, Enzo Ferrari is the definitive biography of the legendary Italian auto maker, revealing new information about Ferrari's rise to power and complex personal life. Accompanying the in-depth text are extensive endnotes along with a full bibliography and index. The book is illustrated with four separate sections of photos, exhibits, and artefacts, and opens with a foreword by former Ferrari president Luca Di Montezemolo, who previously served as the company's Formula One team manager.
Following Evro Publishing's acclaimed photo memoirs of John Surtees and Stirling Moss, the appealing format of these books - wonderful photos with insightful narrative - is applied to the greatest figure in 20th century motor racing. In the aftermath of the Second World War, Enzo Ferrari went into motor racing with magnificent V12-engined cars and very quickly achieved unparalleled success in Formula 1 and sports cars, and built magnificent road cars too. In this book, published on the 70th anniversary of the first Ferrari car, expert author Doug Nye explores the life and achievements of this enigmatic man through a splendid array of photos, many not previously published, and accompanying commentary. Early years: aftermath of the Great War, budding racing driver and Alfa Romeo employee, then emerging as shrewd businessman. Scuderia Ferrari: his own team, first racing Alfa Romeos for wealthy clients, then 'quasi-works' cars, achieving considerable success through the 1930s. Second World War: doing well from industrial production of machine tools - and surviving a contract assassination plan. \Rapid emergence of his own Ferrari marque post-war: six consecutive Mille Miglia wins from 1948; first Le Mans win in 1949; double World Champions in 1952-53. \All-round racer: at his autocratic and spectacular best through the pinnacle years in the 1950s and 1960s - then rescue by Fiat from near bankruptcy. Advancing years: racing focuses on Formula 1 and road-car manufacture shifts from exotic boutique production to significant volume. Final years: on top of the world with new models, and even higher personal status as Italian elder statesman and national icon.
