"a love letter to an era of gears and gasoline now accelerating towards its twilight"

Ultimately, it is all about the car, the heart of a brand whose vehicles have adorned bedroom walls and bucket lists worldwide, and the men (it is almost all men) who tended them at the expense of their wallets and, for the racing drivers, sometimes their lives. Parts are heavily and unapologetically technical, crammed with details of piston configurations, the crafting of cylinder blocks and everything that goes into fine-tuning a machine built for speed and endurance. It is visceral stuff — and refreshingly analogue in an age of software-driven machines.
