You can get the book by itself for just $6,000

There are a lot of things you can buy with $30,000, and in the event you want to spend all of it on one book, you can buy this incredible book dedicated to Ferrari for, you guessed it, $30,000. The unprecedented product is more like a Ferrari opus than an actual book. It features everything you need to know about the Italian automaker, revealing the full story behind one of the world’s most storied and exclusive brands. Only 1,697 books will be created, each priced at $6,000. A handful of these books — the first 250 printed, to be exact — will be offered with a sculptural bookstand that drives the cost up to a staggering $30,000.

There are a total of 514 pages in it, all of which are dedicated to the Prancing Horse’s history.

I’ll venture a guess that there’s no book package quite like this. Published by Taschen and authored by renowned Italian writer and journalist, Pino Allievi, the book is, in a lot of ways, a reflection of Ferrari’s own history and status. It’s extravagant, luxurious, and boasts a rich and powerful history of an automaker that’s widely considered as the most exclusive and popular car brand in the world.

There are a total of 514 pages in it, all of which are dedicated to the Prancing Horse’s history. Never-before-told stories are included in the books, a lot of which come from the Ferrari archives and personal anecdotes of private colors. Hundreds of photographs are also included, revealing a clear picture of the company’s rich history, right down to stories about its humble beginnings back in 1937. The project itself was conceived with Ferrari heavily involved in its production. That’s a big reason why a lot of the contents in the book come directly from the source and the private collectors that have helped build the brand to become what it is today. If you want a legitimate, all-access look at Ferrari, this is the book to get.

Would You Spend $30,000 on a Ferrari Book That's Encased Inside an Engine Sculpture?

A handful of these books — the first 250 printed, to be exact — will be offered with a sculptural bookstand that drives the cost up to a staggering $30,000.

Even its design evokes the kind of luxury status Ferrari has achieved in the 70-plus years it has been around. The covers, for example, are hand-crafted, leather-bound, and hand-stitched. Should you be interested in acquiring what is arguably one of the most expensive fresh-published books in the world, you’re going to need to spend $6,000 for it.

In the event that you really want to go all-out with no regard for expenses, you can go with the Art Edition, which covers the first 250 printed versions of the book. Not only does this edition come with the $6,000 Ferrari book, but it also comes with an evocative sculpture depicting Ferrari’s famous 12-cylinder engine. The sculpture was designed by Marc Newson using aluminum and flared chromed steel. Needless to say, this version doesn’t just cost $6,000. With the sculpture encasing included, the price tag of the whole package shoots up to $30,000, an amount that’s more expensive than a real, life-sized, and brand-new Mazda MX-5. Take that for what it’s worth. Would you rather buy an MX-5 or a Ferrari book that comes with a sculpture as its casing?

Knowing Ferrari’s loyal tifosi, the answer is a no-brainer.
