Description

Of all the great cars to bear the Ferrari name, none are as loved, widely respected, or as lusted after as the classic V12 road cars built between 1948 and 1989.

In Coachwork on Ferrari V12 Road Cars 1948-89, coachbuilders like Bertone, Farina, Ghia, Scaglietti, Pinin Farina, Touring and Vignale are profiled from A-Z, with their history, designers, and design philosophy reviewed. You’ll also see color photography of their outstanding cars.

Simon Clay, leading British car photographer, and Dr. James Taylor, automotive historian, work together to present an authoritative review of the often faultless, sometimes audacious, styling of what are now the most treasured and expensive classic cars in the world.


About the Author

After graduating from Oxford and pursuing further academic studies at Reading, James Taylor spent 12 years working in central government. However, the lure of writing about cars – which he was doing in his spare time – proved too great and he decided to turn it into a career. James has now written well over 100 books in all, and among them have been several definitive one-make or one-model titles. He has written for enthusiast magazines in several countries, has translated books from foreign languages, and even delivers effective writing training in both the public and private sectors. He spent the best part of ten years as the editor of Land Rover Enthusiast magazine and has always counted the products of the old Rover Company and of Land Rover as his favourite subject. He also co-organised the “15 Years of Rover V8” event at Donington in 1982.

 

Simon Clay is a freelance photographer specializing in cars, people, and architecture. He trained at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art, and from 1990 to 1996 was employed full-time as the photographer for England's National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.
