This success story spans all the way from the 901 and the Carrera RS 2.7 (which with its characteristic rear spoiler – the so-called “ducktail” – was the fastest production car of its time) right up to the current generation of the 991. The famous automotive photographer Rene Staud showcases the most important models – all in his typically radiant and distinctive style.

Finally, Ferrari is synonymous with aesthetics, elegance, and trend-setting design. The true value of a brand and its products is measured in the currency of impassioned devotion. The Ferrari Book – Passion for Design traces the evolution of the miracle and lets us experience passion given automotive form in a large and engrossing format.
