With more than 1,100 pages, the Automobili encyclopaedia is an eBook which retraces the history of more than 700 car manufacturers, with detailed, illustrated descriptions of each model.
This is an encyclopaedia which can be read, make after make, just like an exciting novel, or consulted now and again, thanks to its digital index, for instant information about a particular make or simply to remember a date.
The Automobili encyclopaedia isn’t just a long, boring list of names, makes and dates but a real journey through the long history of the car, fully touching on the moods of the periods and the people involved.
Among the main players are two unforgettable names, Ferruccio Lamborghini, the tractor maker, and his friend/rival, Enzo Ferrari, who refused to sell him a Ferrari.
But Ford and Benz are here, too.
These important characters, who were all great professionals, were also simple amateurs who would stop at nothing to get their names onto the automobile industry’s honour roll.
As for the sport of motor racing, we describe some amazing adventures, both human and entrepreneurial, full of heart, passion, danger and creativity.
So here then is an encyclopaedia which describes the challenges and ideas which gave birth to each and every successful make, all of which are found side by side together with the drivers, mechanics and managers who ensured that simple intuition was successfully transformed into brilliant, productive reality.
Every country is represented, from China to Israel, with a special look at the history of Italian motor industry.
This is an eBook which has been optimised for the iPad screen.
