Item description for Ferrari by Pininfarina: Technology and Beauty by Etienne Cornil...
The partnership between Ferrari and Pininfarina for the construction of the prestigious production cars of the House of Maranello represents a phenomenon that is unique in the annals of the world automotive industry.
It spans fifty years, just five fewer than the period spanning the existence of Ferrari iteself; during this time all of the models bearing the prancing horse were systematically entrusted to the renowned Carrozzeria Pininfarina. The book evokes the legendary moments, exploring and remembering the development of the style of the cars built for Maranello, from 1952 to the very last model which has been officially presented at the recent Paris Motor Show of October 2002.
Since 1952 Ferrari and Pininfarina have been representing the most sophisticated and prestigious motor cars in the world’s automotive production. For over forty years Pininfarina has been dressing the Ferrari with extraordinary mechanical components through a magic tradition of unapproached style and high-class. All this represents a great patrimony of technical know-how as well as refined taste. Both are collected and emphasized in this luxury book, which is illustrated by hundreds of lavish black and white and color photos and enriched by 44 precious original drawings expressly drawn for this book by well-known Italian artist, Giorgio Alisi. From the on-shot cars of the early Fifties, through the limited production of the following decades, every Ferrari-Pininfarina model is covered by
an introductory text and by exhaustive technical specifications. In addition, engine and chassis numbers are published, together with the total production figures and the name of the most significant VIP customers through the years.
