There is one direct link between Alfa Romeo and Ferrari, its name is Enzo Anselmo Ferrari. Born on the 18th of February 1898, he joined Alfa Romeo in the early 1920s to become one of their many race drivers. In the beginning he participated in local events, but thanks to his positive results; later also competed in more prestigious races.Nevertheless his real talent the management. Thanks to this, he founded in '29 the Scuderia Ferrari, which became the official Alfa Romeo racing team. Until 1932 Enzo continued as racing driver and after this he concentrated on being the team manager. In '37 Alfa Romeo reduced his position to sports director, what means practically that his possibility to take decisions had been drastically limited. For Enzo this was not tolerable and as consequence he left the company in '39.Apart from this, the ways of both manufactures still crossed many times, as key employees changed from one company to the other or as both used the same coach-builders to design their fast and elegant creations. Even technology transfer happened up to today, as the new top version of the 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia included a Ferrari-based engine."Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Art & History" is not just another publication, but tells the history of these two iconic Italian car manufactures, from one of their first creations in 1911 until today. Therefor the author uses official die-cast model cars and regarding art prints. You will not only find texts and boxes of technical specifications, but images celebrating the unique design of the vehicles, which are a reflection of their engineers' visions and eras.More than ordinary automobiles, even more than sports cars; both, Alfa Romeo and Ferrari produced design objects for the global pop culture, sometimes reflecting the actual zeitgeist, other times being ahead of it and sometimes even creating the fashion.

This book details the origin and racing history of the Ferrari 333 SP. Uniquely, none of the 333 SP models were entered into races by Ferrari itself. The cars were built specifically for customer use; a purchase price of $900,000 included two spare engines and race technical support supplied by Ferrari engineers. A total of 40 cars were built; the first four by Ferrari, the remainder manufactured by Dallara & Michellotto using Ferrari engines. All of the cars were sold to, and race entries made by, privateer teams. From 1994, the cars contested the IMSA World Sports Car Championship, the United States Road Racing Championship, and the American Le Mans Series, at circuits throughout North America. In 1997, the cars also featured in the Europe-based International Sports Racing Series, as well as the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Two years later, the Doran-Lista team installed a Judd V10 engine into its 333 SP, with the aim of increasing power and improving fuel efficiency. In all, from the 126 races entered, 47 victories were claimed by the 333 SP.

The most fun you can have on four wheels Sports cars are the athletes of the automotive world. Always nimble and quick, often powerful, sports cars fly where other cars lumber, and dash where others plod. The definition of a sports car is somewhat fluid, and the question "What was the first sports car?" will often incite a heated debate among enthusiasts. Still, most car fans feel that they know a sports car when they see one and when asked to name a few will rattle off a remarkably similar list of name plates: Jaguar, Corvette, Triumph, MG, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lotus, Alfa-Romeo, BMW. Pressed harder, more exotic and obscure brands will emerge: DB, Alpine, Bugatti, Lancia. Sports cars have offered road and track excitement for nearly 100 years. The original cars evolved for racing, but their appeal and popularity ensured that production versions were soon available for those whose sporting intents never left the boulevard or winding back road. Along the way, sports cars became more comfortable, sometimes almost practical, and above all handsome. But never have they been boring. The Art of the Classic Sports Car offers enthusiasts a beautifully illustrated review of several decades of high-performance cars, featuring cars from around the globe all shot in the studio to ensure a handsome and desirable book. Each featured car includes a profile discussing the car's place in sports car history along with technical and performance specs as well as a smattering of historical images and period ads.
