With a hefty price tag of $30,000, this limited-edition book about the history of the iconic Ferrari brand is a grand masterpiece. Entitled “Ferrari,” this book is the epitome of majesty, elegance, and power.
If you are curious about what made this book extremely expensive, consider these features: it is like Ferrari’s engine printed, bound, and encased.
Designed by Marc Newson, this rare book comes in a beautifully sculptured chrome, and steel book stand with aluminum display case.
Put together; the two pieces emulate the powerful 12-cylinder Ferrari engine. The book is a massive tome telling the history of Ferrari with lots of photos from the luxury brand’s archives. Out of the 1,947 books produced, only 250 will be priced at $30,000, which makes these limited-edition Ferrari ultra-rare.
The luxury books will only be offered to museums and notable Ferrari owners and collectors. Even if you have a spare $30,000 at hand, you will not be able to purchase this epic book unless you are one of those people qualified to buy.
But don’t fret! If you would really like to buy a copy, the cheaper (for lack of a better word) version only costs $6,000.
Taschen published the Ferrari limited edition.
Allegedly, it gives “unrestricted access to hundreds of photographs from the Ferrari Archives and from private collectors, to reveal the full story behind Ferrari’s protagonists, victories, past, and future. A project conceived in close collaboration with Ferrari, this massive tome is a veritable collector’s piece.”
The Ferrari book amazingly mirrors the sophistication and meticulousness of the luxury car’s design and production.
This book has 514 pages, hand-stitched cover design with minimalistic themes, and the iconic prancing horse logo on the patented red background. To add to its value, Piero Ferrari has signed all copies. He is the car maker’s Vice Chairman and only living son of Enzo Ferrari, founder of the Ferrari brand. The 250 ultra-rare copies also have the signatures of the current Chairman of Ferrari and former CEO of Sergio Marcheionne, John Elkann.
There you have it: the history of the world’s most iconic luxury car brand printed on one of the most epic books ever published.
