Enzo Ferrari is probably the best known name the motoring world has ever produced. Son of an Italian metalworker. he has employed some of the most glamorous names the motoring world has known but is remembered better than any of them. When people begin to talk about cars. Ferrari may not be the first name mentioned. When it is, it's second to none. Enzo Ferrari - "Il Commendatore" - has been involved with cars for over 60 years, during which time he has earned a unique and unrivaled reputation which is little short of legend. On the racetrack or on the road his cars have always figured among the very best. Many of them - the Mondial, the 365 GTB4. the 512BB and especially the GTO - are classic landmarks in the history of the motor car. The Ferrari criterion has always been total excellence, from revolutionary engine design to bodywork from the visionary styling houses of Turin. and the prancing horse emblem has never been fixed to any car which was not as good as it was possible to be. something which has always been as true for the road-going production cars as for the racers. Here Godfrey Eaton tells the story of this most famous breed. tracing the development of the cars over the years. from prototypes to single-seat racers and on to road vehicles. It is a story which visits every classic racing event sooner or later. as the progress of the racing Ferraris is charted at Le Mans, the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio, as well as the Formula One circuits. From racing experiences gained through the quest for speed and tempered by the pursuit of excellence the factory at Modena has applied an almost unequaled expertise to produce some of the most exotic road-going hardware available. And despite the fact that it is also among the most expensive, the Ferrari is one of the most sought-after and desirable cars in the world.
