Ladies and Gentlemen,
valued customers,


even the term “luxury” is affected by inflation. This comes clear if you imagine that the Toyota Corolla is also available in a LX version. That makes it interesting to have a look at the brands and cars who have shaped the concept of luxury in former literature.


As always we have prepared a small selection of useful and luxury books about luxury brands. If you are looking for a special book and did not find it yourself do not hesitate to ask.


Best regards

Mille Miglia

If you want to experience Italy’s passion for fast, elegant cars, there is no more thrilling place than the Mille Miglia. With hundreds of thousands of spectators cheering drivers on, the long-distance race from Brescia to Rome and back was held from 1927 to 1957. Racers like Tazio Nuvolari, Rudolf Caracciola, and Stirling Moss - along with the Mille Miglia itself-became legends. The Mille Miglia was revived in 1977 and once again cheering fans line the roads. This exclusive book shows the spectacular 2014 race, which was photographed by René Staud and his team, and offers insights into the exciting history of this famous competition. The result is an enthralling documentation of this unique event and its fascinating cars, picturesque landscapes, and celebrity drivers like Jay Leno and Adrien Brody.

The Aston Martin Book

For the 50th anniversary of James Bond in 2012, two icons came together who jointly epitomize the very essence of British coolness. In Skyfall, Daniel Craig, as agent 007, powered across the screen in an Aston Martin DB5, the very same thrilling six-cylinder that Sean Connery drove in Goldfinger. Meanwhile, Aston Martin has celebrated a milestone birthday. In the century since it was founded by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin on January 13, 1913, the house has created a portfolio that ranges from the Le Mans–winning DB2 to 2013’s Vanquish. René Staud has now captured Aston Martin’s elegant luxury cars in photographic form. As in his best-selling books on the Mercedes 300 SL and the Porsche 911, Staud transforms automobile photography into a sensual experience and The Aston Martin Book allows readers to absorb the aura of a true British classic.

The Classic Cars Book

New additions to the automotive market are judged primarily by efficiency or fuel consumption. Things are quite different for historical cars. Major car shows, from Pebble Beach to Villa d’Este, feature classic cars, which, although they may not achieve top marks in the wind tunnel, have a timeless elegance that makes the hearts of all aficionados skip a beat. The photographer Ansel Adams, who was an honorary judge at Pebble Beach, once defined them as follows: “The type of vehicle I would like to be buried in.” From the Jaguar XK 140 to the Porsche 550 Spyder, René Staud has shot automotive classics in settings ranging from the subtle to the spectacular. As co-organizer and head of the Car Selection Committee for Schloss Bensberg Classics, Jürgen Lewandowski provides authoritative texts. The Classic Cars Book conveys a real passion for these spectacular vehicles, appealing to existing fans and those yet to fall under their spell.

A photographic homage to the “sports car of the century” spanning 60 years of model history, from the 1952 300 SL racers to the latest-generation SL.

Nothing says "summer" like driving a convertible. The car without a roof has always been a symbol for luxury and laissez-faire. And it still holds true today: everybody who’s anybody drives “topless”. The larger four-seater convertibles in particular have always been highly sought after-but they are difficult to build and have usually been made as coupés for this reason. Mercedes-Benz has always been a pioneer in this area. Mercedes-Benz: The Grand Cabrios & Coupés gives us a peek at the long-standing partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Stuttgart-based photographer, René Staud. Carefully staged photos show graceful curves and precision down to the finest details that convey the company’s dedication to a very special kind of driving pleasure. This volume presents the most important convertibles and related coupés from 100 years of Daimler automotive history. A special highlight is Daimler’s new flagship, a convertible based on the new S-class that is being rolled out at the 2015 IAS. Even though summer eventually comes to an end, and sunny days can give way to showers, this book stands for everlasting convertible adventures.

Carrera RS - new edition 2015

The new edition of the Carrera RS book gained 178 pages over the first, sold-out edition of 1992. Many new insights and findings found their way into the 2015 edition. A vast amount of yet unreleased historical photographs illustrate the motorsport career of this legendary model.
The book describes the origin of the "Carrera legend," which is followed by a portrayal of earlier Carrera types. The key part of the book are the chapters that cover the development and technical specifications of the Carrera RS. The optional equipment is shown in detail. The technical aspects and motorsport career of the RSR race version is extensively documented. The research for the new edition spanned over three full years and the authors were happy that Porsche opened its archive for them, allowing glimpses of internal notes and other period documentation.
The revised text goes hand in hand with an abundance of unknown historical photographic material. The book lists all 1,580 Carrera RS built, giving all production details on colors, equipment and interior – the ideal reference book for aficionados, collectors and restorers. It is yellow clothbound and protected by a brown cloth slip case.

The Pininfarina Book

What is innovation? The dictionary says: "Renewal through application of new methods and techniques." Modern day marketing declares almost everything to be an innovation. But what is truly innovative? For 85 years, the answer lies in the Turin design firm Pininfarina. Here the Cisitalia 202 was developed, the first vehicle that has made it into the permanent collection of the MoMA. The interior of the new Juventus stadium. And the Nash Healey Spider, known from Billy Wilder's Sabrina. The Ferrari Dino 246 legends or Testarossa. But Pininfarina is not resting on its laurels, but still expands its portfolio in the future while preserving its heritage the same time. Most of it to be seen in this book.
Languages: Chinese, English, German, Italian
