Following Evro Publishing’s acclaimed photo memoirs of the late John Surtees and Stirling Moss, the appealing format of these books – wonderful photos accompanied by insightful commentary – is applied to the greatest figure in 20th century motor racing. In the aftermath of the Second World War, Enzo Ferrari went into motor racing with magnificent V12-engined cars and very quickly achieved unparalleled success in Formula 1 and sports car racing, and built magnificent road cars too. In this book, expert author Doug Nye explores the life and achievements of this enigmatic man through a splendid array of photos, many not previously published.

• Early years: aftermath of the Great War, budding racing driver and Alfa Romeo employee, then emerging as shrewd businessman.

• Scuderia Ferrari: his own team, first racing Alfa Romeos for wealthy clients, then ‘quasi-works’ cars, achieving considerable success through the 1930s.

• Second World War: doing well from industrial production of machine tools – and surviving a contract assassination plan.

• Rapid emergence of his own Ferrari marque post-war: six consecutive Mille Miglia wins from 1948; first Le Mans win in 1949; double World Champions in 1952–53.

• All-round racer: at his autocratic and spectacular best through the pinnacle years in the 1950s and 1960s – then rescue by Fiat from near bankruptcy.

• Advancing years: racing focuses on Formula 1 and road-car manufacture shifts from exotic boutique production to significant volume.

• Final years: on top of the world with new models, and even higher personal status as Italian elder statesman and national icon.
