After a period of post-war austerity, in 1957 Alfa Romeo decided it was time to re-enter the market for luxury/executive class cars with a new range designed for the growing number and prosperity of potential customers. Thus, the first models in the new 2000 series emerged, followed by the 2600 series in 1962. That they were not hugely successful, although some 18,540 were manufactured between 1957 and 1966, can be attributed to a number of factors, principally cost. Largely ignored for many years, these cars are now recognized as a significant element in Alfa Romeo's history and this book is a valuable record of their story.

ALFA ROMEO DUETTO E SPIDER

Few cars in the history of the automobile have enjoyed such a long life as the Alfa Romeo 1600 Spider – known to most as the Duetto – that made its first appearance at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show. Created by the magical Pininfarina, who had already designed the Giulietta Spider, Alfa’s new discovery immediately transformed itself into an icon due to the fascination of its flowing lines and the reliability of its much tested mechanics. About a decade later, in the mid-Seventies, the Spider was given a stubby tail, which would accompany the Alfa Romeo two-seaters to the early Nineties. Fifty years after that 1966 Geneva Motor Show that saw the baptism of the Duetto series, it seemed inevitable that a new book would be devoted to this historic car, so beautiful and attractive.
