For 30 years from 1927 until 1957 the real Mille Miglia was the "race of excellence". A unique event of over 1,600 kilometres across Italy, the stars of which were some of the world's greatest car manufacturers, among them Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, Maserati, Ferrari, Jaguar and Aston Martin. And their cars were driven, naturally, by some of the equally great champions of the time, like Tazio Nuvolari, Achille Varzi, through to Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss as well as Alberto Ascari, Clemente Biondetti, Piero Taruffi and many others. Count Giannino Marzotto won the race twice in Ferraris in 1950 and 1953 and said the Mille Miglia was "a synthesis of dynamism, freedom, challenge, courage and calculation". The story, or better the stories, of that legendary race live again in this book, which tells the tales of the classic "Bresciana", first of all through hundreds of pictures, most of them never previously published. The text has been written by Leonardo Acerbi, who also wrote "Mille Miglia Story 1927-1957".

24 editions from 1927 to 1957. 24 races featuring the greatest ever cars and drivers participated in the years either side of the Second World War. This in the briefest of terms is the Mille Miglia, the race par excellence; the marathon that for almost three decades traversed Italy, bringing to the nation’s roads stars of the calibre of Varzi and Nuvolari, Biondetti and Fangio, Ascari, Moss and Taruffi driving for the likes of Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, Lancia and Ferrari. The book draws on a wealth of photographic documents, in particular for the post-war editions, from the Novafoto-Sorlini Archive, an important collection featuring the shots taken by the official race photographer, Alberto Sorlini, between 1947 and 1957. Thanks to this previously unpublished and spectacular material, the book evokes an era in which unforgettable chapters in motorsport history were written.

In 1977, precisely 20 years after the last unforgettable high speed Mille Miglia in 1957, the great race came back to relive its history all over again with the commemorative Mille Miglia, attracting once more to Brescia's Piazza della Vittoria the cars of the greatest, most prestigious race in the world that took place between the end of the'20s and the second half of the '50s. Since then, the Mille Miglia has gone back to being an event not to be missed, first every two years and then yearly for all motoring and motor racing enthusiasts. A book tells the story of this great sporting and cultural event, the 2014 edition of which opens with a historical section that recalls the 1934 race, won by Achille Varzi, and the 1954, with the magnificent victory of Alberto Ascari. After that, the book concentrates on the race that took place last May and its protagonists - competitors, crew after crew, car after car, in a long and fully-illustrated section. 2014 Mille Miglia starting grid was full of exceptional protagonists too: actors Luke Evans, Adrien Brody and Jeremy Irons, American TV personality Jay Leno, French stylist Paloma Picasso and industrial designer Mark Newson. Many musicians were also there: Brian Johnson, AC/DC frontman, British rapper Example, Scottish singer Amy Macdonald and Belgian singer Milow. Many racing drivers took the start, first and foremost Eros Crivellari, the only one with an original Mille Miglia to his credit, Andy Wallace, Jochen Mass, Teo Fabi, Bernd Schneider, Jacky Ickx, Martin Brundle and Bruno Senna, with the very evocative helmet of his late uncle Ayrton. This is indispensible publication for all those who were there, and for all vintage car enthusiasts.

 Gregory Cagle was a 10-year-old car fanatic when his family moved from New Jersey to Germany in 1956. For the next five years he photographed unusual, rare and sometimes bizarre automobiles throughout Europe. This book features 105 specimens of auto exotica, captured with Cagle’s Iloca Rapid-B 35mm camera—not showpieces in museums but daily drivers in their natural habitats. In the background can be glimpsed, here and there, the mood of postwar Europe. The story behind each photo is told, with dates and locations, information and history about the cars and some of their owners, along with Cagle’s personal anecdotes.

The entire stylistic and industrial history of Pininfarina, a true bastion of the “Made in Italy” phenomenon, is contained in this book with its wealth of black and white and colour photos. For almost 90 years Pininfarina has been synonymous with Italian coachbuilding. Some of the most iconic cars in the history of not only Italian but also worldwide motoring have been clothed by a firm that has been recognised as the creator of true works of art. Battista Farina, known as “Pinin”, was the master craftsman who in 1930 founded in Turin the ‘’Società Anonima Carrozzeria Pinin Farina’’. The quality and the beauty of his creations soon established the firm’s reputation and well before the outbreak of the Second World War it could boast magnificent bodies on Alfa Romeo, Lancia and Fiat chassis. 1947 saw the presentation of a milestone in the history of Italian design, the Cisitalia 202. Between the 1950s and 1990s the company produced iconic designs such as the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider and the “Duetto”, the Lancia Aurelia B24 and the Flaminia, the Fiat Dino Spider and the 124 coupé, not to mention the innumerable Ferraris bodied by the prestigious Turin firm that from 1952 had become Maranello’s coachbuilder of choice. Numerous 250 GTs, the 250 Le Mans, the 365 Daytona, the 308 GTB, the Testarossa and the 288 GTO are all Pininfarina-bodied Ferraris. This book recounts the most recent history of this giant of Italian car design with all the latest products realised in particular for the Asian market where the Pininfarina brand has an increasing presence. There is also a chapter devoted to Pininfarina Extra, a brand within the brand, which since 1986 has been taking a 360° approach to design. The full story of this iconic Italian design firm finally told in a single volume.
