At 50cm square The Official Ferrari Opus tells the story of the Prancing Horse on an unprecedented and epic scale.
The Opus celebrates the magic of Ferrari, whether on the road, on the track with the F1 team, in the cockpit with the drivers or behind the scenes with the workers at the legendary factory in Maranello, Italy.
Featuring over 1,000 image, many rare and previously unpublished, the Opus also contains exclusive photoshoots of key Ferrari personalities such as Luca di Montezemolo, Niki Lauda and Jean Todt. An unique photo essay by world reknowned photographer Rankin, shows the iconic 1961 California Spider in a brand new way.
Commissioned contributors, include esteemed personalities such as, Leo Turrini, Marco Franzelli, Stephen Bayley and Nestore Morosini, help bring to life the fascinating history of Ferrari.
It was a real thrill, combined with a sense of great responsibility and honour, when Ferrari granted us the privilege of telling their story on such an unprecedented scale. Hundreds of books have been devoted to Ferrari over the years, but I believe The Official Ferrari Opus goes way beyond anything that has been published previously. Each of the 852 pages is a true testament to the creativity that has gone into its production and will give pleasure to generations to come.
