One of my most cherished coffee table books is Carros De Cuba, shot on location in Cuba by photographer Piotr Degler. Why? I see something new every time I open it.

His next project is almost completely opposite to his last: a 10+ year dive into the Italian automotive industry. And it looks hot.

Before you start flipping through the (few) pictures I borrowed to illustrate this article, and get surprised by the (pre-order) price of 95€, consider this:

  • self-edited by Piotr Degler and DEGLER STUDIO
  • shot over more than 10 years
  • printed in Italy
  • cost more than 100,000€ to create

Besides the photos, the book includes a series of interviews with legends you’re more familiar with on a last name basis: Dallara, Fioravanti, Gandini, Giugiaro, Manzoni, Martin, Pagani, Pininfarina, Spada, Stola, and Zagato.

If speedster.news helped you spend your hard-earned $, let us know on social media. ;)

“If you create something, it needs to be something never seen before. I wanted to create something each car-, photography- or design-enthusiast could proudly display in his living room, sharing it with friends and enjoying it from time to time."
