I'm, Arnaud Meunier, freelance journalist-photographer, specialist of the Ferrari brand. Since twenty years, I working with various international specialized magazines.
First step in the world of publishing in 2005 with the Berlinetta magazine. I come back to the book world in 2014 by writing the book "Tutte Le Ferrari". Quickly new titles follow ... 2015 I made a photo book about the Ferrari event of the year in USA : Cavallino Classic (the only book recognized by the organization).
At the end of 2016, I become my own editor with the book "Ch.Pozzi 1969-2003" realized in collaboration with the Club Ferrari France. It was a real success. Lately, for the end of 2018, I publish a book gathering 125 Ferrari with Uniques and Special characters.

My new book tells the story of the Ferrari 250 LM chassis number 5895.
The writing of this new book began two years ago. It is the result of many years of research dedicated to listing all the events contested by 250 LMs. In order not to redo a book that already exists, I decided to direct his writing on a particular model ... the chassis number 5895. Why this one more than another? You will discover it by reading the book!
The history of the 250 LM model and 5895 in particular led me to take a closer look at the history of the Maranello Concessionaires, the team that made it run and therefore Colonel 'Ronnie' Hoare and his garage. All this gives a book composed of 5 chapters:
Chapter 1: 250 BERLINETTA LE MANS
tells the story of the model
Chapter 2: MARANELLO DEALERS
tells the story of the Maranello Concessionaires Garage , the beginnings of the official Ferrari import in Britain and his racing team.
Chapter 3: 250 LMs FROM MARANELLO DEALERS
shows the differences allowing to identify the different 250 LM entered in races by the Maranello Concessionaires Racing Team
Chapter 4: 250 LM * 5895 *
tells the story of the 250 LM chassis 5895 from 1964 to the present day
Chapter 5: 250 LM REGISTER
the 32 copies of 250 LM built with history and the repertoire of events and shows where they were entered
