TARGA FLORIO’S CHASSIS - Volume I
The creation of Vincenzo Florio is one of the oldest car races in the world, the oldest still held today. A timeless charm in a wonderful land that deserves a special tribute, with a golden cover!
It is a fascinating project and the first of its kind: its aim is to document all the cars which participated at every edition of the original speed race between 1906 and 1977 as well as the rally race from 1978. Each car featured that took part in the Targa Florio from 1906 to 1977 is presented with two lists: one about all the Targa Florio speed races in which it took part, a second one of following events under the Targa Florio name. To conclude, a third separate list comprehends the categories of the car according to AUTOMOTIVE MASTERPIECES. The same format will be used for the rally cars. Moreover, the cars that participated from 70s to the reenactment events in the name of the Targa Florio appear in another section of the book.
The first of the series is dedicated to 45 cars that raced the Targa Florio, shown through more than 250 images and documents.
Entirely written in English and generously sized at 250 x 325 mm, it will be published in Italy with over 350 high quality pages.
