Italian Ercole Spada designed the Aston Martin DB4 Zagato, Alfa Codatronca, TZ1, TZ2, 2600 SZ and Junior Zagato, yet also Lancia Flavia, Fulvia and Flaminia Zagato and many others. In the 80s, he was responsible for the BMW 5- and 7-Series, and he wrote history at I-DE-A with Fiat Tipo, Lancia Dedra and Alfa 155. After a few Ferraris and Lamborghinis, his 50 year career was crowned with the Osca Dromos. Son Paolo used this unique heritage for the spectacular Spada Codatronca one-off.
This is a story about car design, passion and about fathers and sons. Itâ€™s filled with remarkable insights, inspiring sketches and many designs that have never been showed before. Written in English, this 300 page visual feast is brought in 30 x 30 cm.
The book, made in close collaboration with the designers, comes with an A0 colour print of the technical drawing of Alfa TZ1.
