Product Description

Arriving in Modena during the post-war years of economic boom, Alejandro de Tomaso was the ambitious protagonist of an exciting story involving intense competition between gentlemen sportsmen and industrial dynasties. The Vallelunga, the Mangusta, and the Pantera; the cars de Tomaso developed have since become icons from that era. Profusely illustrated, the narrative concentrates on de Tomaso’s early years as a racing driver and innovative car designer and manufacturer using newly released photographs and documents from the de Tomaso private archives, and with the cooperation and assistance of the de Tomaso family. It includes walk-on roles for Enzo Ferrari, the Maserati and Orsi brothers and Lee Iacocca.
