    Fantastic video. Any idea what the title of his book is, if it was translated to English, or where to find it?

    Boy, he really doesn't have good things to say about the 348 at about 20 minutes into the video.

    +1 Yes we need more details.

    Joe do you know what book he is talking about?

    1090kg for the F40 as it was originally designed is amazing!!! They didn't like to see the 'carbon weave'...

    Alberto do you know anything about the book mentioned in the video?
    Where was the silver 288 GTO filmed that was also in the video? The front end looked different on that particular silver Ferrari.

    Sorry, I don't.

    I belive Marcel said that post-production modified GTO is in Sicily.

    I didn't see the entire video, just some parts. I went to visit Materazzi at home ten days ago.
    No 288 GTO was ever produced in silver, so a silver one cannot be still in factory conditions.

    This particular GTO was originally built in red as all of them were, and both the paint & lower-frontal bodywork are a post-production application.

    Materazzi shows me many books, the Joe Sackey one too. He showed me another fantastic book, in English, that I never saw before: Maybe it's that.

    Ok, it just seemed he was excited about the one book but didn't describe the title during the interview. He has a large book collection it appears from the video! Thank you.

    Picture of Nicola Materazzi, taken Sunday September 3, on his house terrace. He is a great car enthusiast and very proud of his life spent in the car industry. That picture will be on my book about the four turbo cars that Ferrari produced in the eighties. Today at 14.30 local time I have an appointment with ing. Vincenzi, to talk about 288 GTO (the yellow one...) and the other turbo cars, this time from the seller and assistance point of view.

    I will let you know something tomorrow or as soon as possible.

    Ciao

    I just had with me a voice recorder, so I don't have a video of the book, sorry.

    But here you are a picture with a part of his library: hope you enjoy it

    ciao

    Alberto that is a wonderful image I can certainly relate to! The computer has it's uses but to have a printed book on hand to read is more special...
