Enzo Ferrari began working with automobiles in 1918, first as a tester, then as a driver and eventually as team manager. But it was only in 1947, with the 125S, that his career as an automaker began, but in the space of only a few years he would have brought his name to the attention of the world, making it one of the most important in the history of the automobile. Under his guidance and with his inspiration, the Maranello company has produced innumerable masterpieces that have always inflamed the hearts of enthusiasts and whetted the appetites of collectors. And his spiritual inheritance was fully carried on by those who succeeded him in leading Ferrari, which has continued to build vehicles exactly the way the "Old Man" would have wanted. This is an innovative editorial concept made by a 40-pages little book that retraces the fundamental stages of the evolution of the "Prancing Horse", and a folded book with 20 sheets bringing together the 40 most representative Ferrari. In each page the text, accompanied by accurate rendering and detailed technical information, will lead the reader through time, in a fascinating journey amidst noise, curiosities, anecdotes and accounts.
