The Ferrari Opus : Rare Book by Ferrari

Posted on 2606 views

 

What is the Ferrari Opus Book?  It is meant to be the definitive book on Ferrari by Ferrari.  It comes in 3 version with varying price tags.   These books are enormous!   I was fortunate enough to see this book in person at the Ferrari Dealership in the Wynn Hotel.  I believe it was the Classic Opus version (lowest) and was selling for $2000 US Dollars.   Its a huge book and very rare.   I promised myself that If I won money at baccarat, I would go get the book.   Sadly, the gambling gods were not having it and had to go to my room in the red.   I have never seen one for sale since so I thought it would be fun to write about it.

Ferrari Opus is a 50cm square book which tells the story of popular Italian luxury car manufacturer, Ferrari.

It is published by Kraken Opus.

The Ferrari Opus offers an unprecedented insight into the magic of Ferrari through a series of in-depth interviews, exclusive features and rare photographs.

The book covers many different aspects of the luxury car company including behind the scenes with workers at the factory in Maranello, Italy, at the races with the team and even in the cockpit with the drivers.

The 852 page Ferrari Opus features information on Ferrari greats such as Enzo Ferrari, Alberto Ascari, Niki Lauda, Michael Schumacher and many more.
