A substantial work, providing exceptional insights into Ferrari the man, Ferrari's design, and Ferrari the legend.

Ferrari is an extraordinary company that emerged as World War II receded in Italy, combining collegiality, an almost religious dedication, and dictatorship in equal parts. Above all, it was impelled by the remorseless ambition of its founder Enzo Ferrari. Richly illustrated with personal ephemera, technical drawings, master models, and luxurious product shots, this in-depth exploration of Ferrari - the man, company, cars, and clientele – reveals what goes into the making of, many would argue, the world's most desirable car brand.

"Depending on your interest in cars, we imagine you already know a fair bit about Ferraris. However, perusing Ferrari: Under The Skin, a new Phaidon book that ties in with an exhibition at London's Design Museum, we discovered many interesting things we didn't previously know about the company... John Lennon's first car was a Ferrari... They could have built Ferraris in Detroit... Enzo Ferrari was nearly eaten by wolves... The prancing horse logo was inspired by an Italian pilot... Ferrari's image was created by another company."—MrPorter.com
