De Tomaso

: from Buenos Aires to Modena : the history of an automotive visionary / original text: Daniele Pozzi ; translation from the Italian text: Andrea Cittadini and Alessandro Saetta Vinci. - Deerfield : Dalton, 2015. - 238 p. : ill. ; 32 cm. - ISBN 978-1-85443-278-0.

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 that 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, 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.
