"What have you done to your car and it is stronger than mine?"

Asked Carlo Abarth with Austrian accent to Giovanni Michelotti beating his fists on the table when in 1961 he called him to his office: during the tests on the Monza circuit, the Giulietta "Goccia" prototype of Michelotti-Conrero run faster than his Zagato: Michelotti timidly replied...(the rest on the book).

Edgardo Michelotti


When a "dream of life" is fulfilled, you ought to feel complete.
It is extremely difficult to capture the emotions that you feel and want to move to other passionate people like you through a book, the agony to read the impressions of your readers is comparable to the anxiety that you feel when you hold the wheel of such a historic car!
