Having left motor racing in the early 1950s - at least officially - Alfa Romeo returned to the sport once again at the start of the following decade due to the commitment and enthusiasm of Autodelta. This Alfa offshoot distinguished itself by preparing and racing about 30 of the manufacturer's different cars that really did make history. Among them, the Giulia TZ holds a place at the head of the crowd. It had a 1.5-litre, 113 hp engine from the Giulia SS, front and rear suspension of modern conception, disc brakes and an especially bold body shaped by Zagato on a modern tubular chassis. Those were the strong points of this car, which scored results of absolute prestige in its brief career at Sebring, in the Targa Florio, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Tour de France. Vito Witting da Prato, already the author of a meticulously written book on the Alfa Romeo SZ, covers the winning, human, technical and sporting factors of this unforgettable car in a monumental work. A book which, to the precise text and painstaking historical reconstruction, has been added illustrations of previously unpublished pictures and technical designs by Autodelta.

The 300 SL (W 194) is the first racing car with which Mercedes-Benz renewed its participation in international automobile racing in the postwar period. Top-ranking positions and triumphs, such as at the legendary twenty-four-hour endurance race in Le Mans or the Carrera Panamericana in Mexico, are not a long time in the coming and as early as 1952 secure a place for the Stuttgart-based make in the worldwide motor sports scene. The racing car achieved particular fame for its unusual gull-winged doors, which turn the production sports car 300 SL, introduced in 1954 and directly derived from the W 194, into one of the lasting icons in automobile history. The book provides exhaustive and authentic documentation of the technical development of the W 194 based on extensive research in the archives of Mercedes-Benz Classic: all of the races as well as the biography of each individual vehicle are presented with the aid of in part unpublished images and illustrations. Its high-quality design as well as its exquisite features make the book a true collector's item. (English edition ISBN 978-3-7757-4003-6)

Twelve years after the first Benz patent motorcar Number 1 made its first journey in July 1886, a car raced across the image in Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's lithograph, The Automobilist. La 628-E8, a novel named after the license plate number of its author, Octave Mirbeau, was published in the early twentieth century. In his Futurist Manifesto, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti rated the beauty of a racecar's revving engine and speed higher than the aesthetics of the Nike of Samothrace. Ever since its invention, artists have been examining the automobile, and the BMW Art Cars have played a central role here. Alexander Calder's BMW 3.0 CSL from 1975 was the first in a series brought to life by Hervé Poulain, lover of auto racing and works of art, in collaboration with BMW's head of motorsports, Jochen Neerpasch. Seventeen artists have since designed BMW models, and the "rolling sculptures" have not only proved themselves in museums, but also on the race track at Le Mans.ARTISTS FEATURED (selection)John Baldessari, Alexander Calder, Sandro Chia, Ken Done, Olafur Eliasson, Cao Fei, Ernst Fuchs, David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Michael Jagamara Nelson, Matazo Kayama, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Esther Mahlangu, César Manrique, A.R.Penck, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol

Auf Schloß Blandings, einem herrlichen englischen Landsitz, passieren wieder die unmöglichsten Dinge: Eine versprochene Ehe findet nicht statt und mehr oder weniger Unschuldige sollen enterbt werden. Darüber ist Onkel Fred maßlos erzürnt und versucht zu retten, was noch zu retten ist. P. G. Wodehouse läßt in seinem rasanten Roman den Fünften Earl von Ickenham, kurz Onkel Fred, in Blandings Castle von der Leine. Der wohl furioseste Onkel der Weltliteratur besitzt das seltene Talent, sich ständig in bizarrste und scheinbar aussichtslose Situationen hinein-, aber auch brillant wieder hinauszumanövrieren. Seinen Anfang nimmt der ganze Schlamassel im Drones Club mit einer Wette, die Onkel Freds geschätzter Neffe Pongo Twistelton schmählich verliert ...
