Today, Ferrari is a legend. The beginning of this legend, the hesitant and difficult steps taken by Ferrari in the first years of its activity, are recalled here, accurately and calmly by Gioachino Colombo, the young technician to whom Enzo Ferrari entrusted the realisation of his dreams as a maker of cars.

The brief period Colombo spent with Ferrari was just one episode in a long and successful career designing Grand Prix vehicles. However, it was his 12 cylinder engine, adventurously designed for Ferrari in the bedroom of his lodgings in Milan that guaranteed Colombo a place in the front-rank of motoring history.

This volume is edited by Valerio Moretti, one of the leading Italian motoring historians.

Scarce hardback in good condition. Dust cover also good, some sunning to spine.
