Alberto Martinez, Jose Rosinski. Copyright 1985 by Motorbooks International. Approximately 189.
Which are the world's ultimate road cars? Automotive journalist Jose Rosinski and automotive photographer Alberto Martinez think they know the answer, and this book represents their personal selection of fourteen cars. What makes a particular car worthy of being included in this select group? The answer varies: for some models, like the Ferrari Daytona, it will be beauty of line; for others, like the Porsche 911 Turbo, it will be the ability to deliver shattering performance; some, like the Lamborghini Countach, will have been selected on the basis of stunning appearance and performance. Whilst the Aston Martin Volante may have been chosed for its breeding. Whatever the reason for its inclusion, each of these carefully chosen cars has been beautifully photographed in full colour by Alberto Martinez and described and tested perceptively by Jose Rosinski. The resulting book records for posterity the sight, sound and feel of the fourteen most exciting cars - The Ultimate Automobiles - from the late sixties to date. Sections of this book include: Introduction; Ford GT 40 (1966); Lamborghini Miura (1966); Maserati Ghibli (1966); Chevrolet Corvette (1967); Ferrari Daytona (1968); Ferrari Daytona (1968); Aston Martin Volante (1969); De Tomaso Pantera (1970); Maserati Bora (1971); Lanci Stratos (1971); Lamborghini Countach (1971); Ferrari 512 BB (1972); Porsche 911 Turbo (1974); Porsche 928 S (1977); BMW M1 (1978).
