No other cars embody automotive passion better than those produced by Ferrari. From the record-setting Formula One race cars produced by Scuderia Ferrari to the exquisite road cars created in Maranello, Italy, Ferrari has produced some of the most sensuous vehicles ever created.

Exquisitely illustrated, Ferrari: Stories from Those Who Lived the Legend tells the complete story of a car like no other. Sixty years after Ferrari blazed onto the scene, this big book takes us back to the world where the car was created. Master photographer and automotive writer John Lamm tells the Ferrari story through the words of the people who made the history. In extensive interviews with those who lived the story of Ferrari, from its founding days right up to our own, Lamm gives us a thrilling, behind-the-scenes look at how automotive history was made. Virtually an oral history of the world's most iconic sports car, Ferrari: Stories from Those Who Lived the Legend is also a treasury of historic and detailed modern images--what any reader lucky enough to open it up might expect--a hell of a ride.
