Booklist Review: "Until you're old (and rich) enough to get behind the wheel of one, sports-car appreciation is all about ogling pics, tallying horsepower, and clocking zero-to-60 speeds. The books in the Wild Wheels series deliver on all counts, with nary a spread lacking in a full-body photo and a peek at vital engine specs. Ferraris opens with a short biography of founder Enzo Ferrari and shows how his roots as a racer helped to define the company and its dedication to producing powerful, fast, and flashy vehicles. Back matter for each book is limited to a glossary and a few further-reading books and websites. With so many books these days devoted to sensible hybrids and forward-thinking dorkmobiles, this series offers a guilt-free opportunity to wallow in the speed, muscle, and sleek profiles of high-performance, star-power vehicles.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"
