Ferrari means red. It means racing. Excellence, luxury, and performance. Less well-known is the man behind the brand. For nearly seventy years, Enzo Ferrari dominated a motor-sports empire that defined the world of high-performance cars. Next to the Pope, Ferrari was the most revered man in Italy. But was he the benign padrone portrayed by an adoring world press at the time, or was he a ruthless despot, who drove his staff to the edge of madness, and his racing drivers even further? Brock Yates's definitive biography penetrated Ferrari's elaborately constructed veneer and uncovered the truth behind Ferrari's bizarre relationships, his work with Mussolini's fascists, and his fanatical obsession with speed.

For tens of millions of people around the world, a single name evokes the world of speed - Enzo Ferrari. Today's Formula One would be unthinkable without the presence of the Ferrari cars on the grid. Win or lose, Ferrari attract more fans than all the other teams combined. And the cars unique appeal - their mystique, their myth - has its origins in the story of one man with a dictator's will and the cunning of a Machiavelli. Going back to the origins of "The Old Man", tracing his remarkable rise to prominence, and using sources which have hitherto remained silent, Richard Williams tells the story of a man who was one of the key figures of sport in the twentieth century, and whose influence over his sport is undiminished today, more than a decade after his death.

Introduce your readers to the Ferrari, which has received numerous accolades for design and performance, both as race cars and luxury automobiles. Enzo Ferrari worked for Alfa Romeo, but left the company in 1939 to begin his own automobile company. Ferrari's main goal was to create an automobile capable of beating Alfa Romeo in a car of his creation. He opened Auto Avio Costruzioni in Modena, Italy, in 1939. In 1947, Ferrari took a V12, known today as the 125 S, out for it's first test drive. Ferraris have shined on the racing circuit and Enzo Ferrari was awarded for his devotion for adding to Italy's international reputation after World War II.

The moment in 1958 when a sports car-crazed youth in Massachusetts saw his first Ferrari changed his life. The black 250 GT coupe's seductive lines, purposeful air and already hallowed name seized Robert E. Guarino's imagination; just a few years later, he would be selling such cars. And in 1967, with two partners and an investment of just $6,000 apiece, he would open a Ferrari-Porsche-Datsun dealership. This memoir follows his lifelong journey with Ferraris and other remarkable automobiles, as an enthusiast and dealer. Highlights include a nonstop drive from Chicago to Boston in a 308 GTB; rides with important figures like Piero Ferrari at Fiorano and Dario Benuzzi at Mugello; visits to the Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini factories; the horror of watching a delivery truck crash onto a row of new cars; and time at the wheel of such icons as the 365 GTB/4 "Daytona," 250 GTO, 288 GTO and F40.
