With early history by Gianni Rogliatti and full of international contributions, this is the first book to look in depth at the Ferrari 166 – the original Ferrari GT and sports racing model and the car which marked the birth of Ferrari as a serious manufacturer. Interviews with, and statements from, Colombo, Busso, Lampredi, Bianchi, Anderloni and Cortese ensure that the full story of the 166’s birth and its controversial design team is told in a depth never before attempted. As well as a colour section, this book has many superb black and white coachwork line drawings and photographs which are contemporary with the car from the design houses of Carrozzeria Touring, Farina, Vignale, Ghia, Bertone, Zagato and Pininfarina. In short this is the definitive book on the Tipo 166 and the people who designed it. Specification details are given along with principal characteristics, records of racing history and production details and a chassis register. If you like Ferraris, you will find the story of the car which started the great thoroughbred line absolutely fascinating.
