De Tomaso : from Buenos Aires to Modena, the History of an Automotive Visionary

Alejandro de Tomaso arrived in Modena in the years of the economic boom: in that period the district we now refer to as Motor Valley was born, thanks to the genius of figures like Enzo Ferrari, Adolfo Orsi (Maserati) and Ferruccio Lamborghini.

De Tomaso was one of the great protagonists of that season, first as a driver, then as a constructor of cars destined to an elite of lovers of high-performance sports cars. But he was also an ambitious entrepreneur, capable of dealing with the great magnates of the US car industry 'on a par' (he was a partner of the Ford family) and to stand as a credible interlocutor for the revival of many Italian car industries in the 1970s (Maserati, Innocenti, Moto Guzzi, Benelli).
The Vallelunga, the Mangusta, and the Pantera; the cars de Tomaso developed have since become icons from that era.

Pages of the book De Tomaso: from Buenos Aires to Modena (1)

The book is born from the collaboration with the de Tomaso family, who for the first time have opened the private archives of the founder of the auto maker, making available to the public at large the private photographs, the historical images of all the models and the technical drawings, revealing the secrets and the behind-the-scenes episodes of a legendary production.

This book is published in conjunction with the Italian publisher Sole 24 ORE based in Milan.
