Maserati at Heart By Ermanno Cozza, £39,

Classic Cars (UK) - - Books & Models -

gior­gion­adaed­i­, ISBN 978 88 7911 716 6 The cover lulls you into think­ing this hefty 500-page hard­back is about Maserati en­gines. In a way it is – Cozza spent his en­tire work­ing life as an en­gi­neer at Maserati, ap­ply­ing his in­ge­nu­ity to ev­ery­thing from the 250F to the Bi­turbo. But this is par­tau­to­bi­og­ra­phy, part Maserati his­tory from a shop-floor per­spec­tive.

As a re­sult we get sto­ries of Fan­gio’s Grand Prix win­ners, Gi­u­giaro’s su­per­cars, a mys­te­ri­ous en­gine or­der from France and the chaos un­der Ale­jan­dro de To­maso from the per­spec­tive of one of the peo­ple tasked with ra­tio­nal­is­ing it all in steel and alu­minium – one that’s hith­erto un­heard of.
