Ferrari Books & Memorabilia

From my 36 years in business as l’art et l’automobile Gallery and later online as arteauto.com, I cannot begin to count how many Ferrari related memorabilia items have passed through our hands.

Being definitely the most revered name in the automobile industry, Ferrari sports and racecars have inspired many writers to publish hundreds of books about the marque. Painters and sculptors use them as a subject in their original artwork, prints and vintage posters. Modelers have built every car Ferrari ever made from scratch built to mass produced die cast.

Over the years, arteauto.com has built up a large and unique collection of those items that we offer for sale to the many Ferrari enthusiasts and collectors around the world.

We invite you to visit arteauto.com and search for Ferrari to see over 150 items relating to this great Italian marque from street to racing machines.

Those items will give you great pleasure decorating your library, den, garage or your automobile museum.

In addition to the pleasure it will provide you with a great investment as many of those items have increased in price a minimum of 10 to 20% yearly.

Enjoy and collect what you like.
