One man had unique access to the company, its people and its products during the years from 1950 to 1955 when Ferrari surged from a brash newcomer to a dominant force in Grand Prix and sports cars.

Rodolfo Mailander here presents his intimate portraits of this stirring era with the help of his friend Karl Ludvigsen, whose world famous Library holds the Mailander archive.

Enhancing appreciation of Rodolfo Mailander’s insightful images is commentary by the photographer himself and by Ludvigsen, who has been a friend of Mailander for almost 50 years.

Both men contribute introductions that set the scene for this story of the formative years of one of the greatest automotive marques.

A treat for the Ferrari enthusiast is a tabulation of serial numbers of the cars illustrated, provided by renowned Ferrari expert Marcel Massini.

After his career as a photojournalist Rodolfo Mailander worked first in Stuttgart for Mercedes-Benz and later in Turin for Fiat, where he was a close associate of Gianni Agnelli.

Well-known for his award-winning authorship and journalism, Karl Ludvigsen has worked at senior levels for GM, Fiat and Ford. In London he ran a leading motor-industry management consultancy.

For further details about the background, see Karl Ludvigsen. Illustrations: 500 black and white photographs selected with an eye for their artistic as well as topical content.
