Description

Over the years few people have had the opportunity to visit the Ferrari factory and see these great sports and racing cars made. Among those who have done so are Rudy Mailander, Karl Ludvigsen and Edward Eves.

Starting in the early 1950s and through the 1970s their photography provides an unique record of the way this famous Italian company makes its cars. Their unpublished photos from the Ludvigsen Library are a feast for Ferrari fanatics, taking them behind the scenes of the foundry, machine shops, engine assembly and testing and car assembly lines at Ferrari.

Included as well are rare photos of the racing department and the magnificent Ferrari sports and racing cars under construction. Commentary by Karl Ludvigsen provides insights into the creation of these legendary cars, including his own run-in with Enzo Ferrari when he took a photograph too far.
