Unique pieces, chassis no. 1, or strictly Italian prototypes, on which the greatest designers and coachbuilders from the past have experimented pioneering solutions: choices that foretell future fashion phenomena and stylistic canons. The Lopresto Collection is unlike all others: it comprises only Italian models, oneoff specimens, prototypes, special editions, and models made in extremely limited numbers, often personalized to match the customer’s specific requests.

This is why it is the most important collection in Italy and one of the most prestigious in the world. Frequently, they are masterpieces that have long been forgotten, but through skilled restoration Lopresto has salvaged their bygone splendor, because he, an architect by profession and collector by passion, is in fact an automobile archeologist in love with his vehicles.

Industry Reviews

"A book on one-off Italian cars is always fun to read, but particularly when it's an exceptional work of automotive non-fiction and photography. Best in Show is just such a book, covering twenty cars from Corrado Lopresto's concours-winning collection in chronological order, from the early 1901 Isotta Fraschini to the 1973 DeTomaso Pantera II 7x Montella."
