The late 1960s. Alfa Romeo came to the end of a great decade of constant technical and sales success with the desire and need to change. The Giulia project, which had already matured with the appearance of the 1750, continued to grow, but with just a few aesthetic improvements until a little before the arrival of the 2-litre. At the same time, the company opened up a new technical route it would take as well as a fresh styling orientation towards creating cars of sharper and more taut lines specifically for the Alfetta, which was to rise to the task of becoming the protagonist in the intermediate and superior cubic capacity segments. But the new saloon had to live with its sister car for six years, born with a changed front rather than the Alfetta’s rear gearbox layout. Despite that difference, the new car became an iconic model in the history of Alfa. This book covers the technical, industrial and stylistic history of a car that was even able to take the motorised lead in films, many of them Italian police sagas of the ‘70s. The second part of the book deals specifically with the historic, technical, stylistic and sporting history of the Giorgetto Giugiaro-designed GT, a model which, even today, is a must in all its forms for all Alfa lovers. As always, this book is also an accurate guide to the cars’ complete restoration.

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.

Even today, to many people the Alfa Romeo Giulia is synonymous with Alfa itself. It was certainly a legendary car and a fundamental one to the brand. It first appeared as the heir to the apparently irreplaceable Giulietta, but it was able to repeat its predecessor’s success, turning the motoring world into turmoil. From comments in the press on the eve of the new car’s presentation in 1962, the word that recurred more than any other was “originality”: a new design that was at first controversial and later loved unreservedly, new technological developments and higher performance. And the Arese factory at which it was built was also new. The Giulia dominated the market until 1977, but even after that it never left the hearts of enthusiasts. The car’s history, the versions, its motor sport career and pictures of an epoch are all between the covers of this book. As is a “small guide” for those who acquire now or are “returning” to this great Alfa Romeo.


For some, this was the last real Alfa Romeo, and certainly the last rear-wheel drive production car. For this reason alone, the Alfa 75 is much liked, sought after, even loved by Alfisti of yesterday and today. The designation 75 came about as a celebration of the manufacturer’s 75th anniversary, but immediately afterwards it bore witness to the major crisis that led to Alfa joining the Fiat Group.
The Alfa 75 is also a culmination of a school of thought – the transaxle persuasion – that was born with the Alfetta and eventually reached full maturity. A prestigious imposition, complex and sophisticated that, perhaps, challenged the laws of production cost containment, but it is certainly able to further enhance an enjoyable driving experience. It was followed by the launch of the legendary Twin Spark and there came a moment in which the turbo would be “worth” an Alfa Romeo.
This book and its pictures tell the story of the birth, history, success, innovations and races of the Alfa Romeo 75 and offers help to those who want a 75 in their garage.

This volume is devoted to the Alfetta GT and GTV, the last coupé by Alfa Romeo with classical mechanics: front engine with rear gearbox, differential and drive. The book contains a brief introduction on the cars’ predecessors and some of the more significant Alfa Romeo coupé prototypes, before moving on to the full development history and birth of the Alfetta GT design: from the Styling Centre in Arese to Giugiaro, who penned the definitive shape of the Alfetta GT. The volume also covers the cars’ entire sporting history in rallying and touring car racing, with a description of the various prototypes and models plus exclusive testimony by the cars’ technicians, test and racing drivers. There then follows a complete analysis of the various models and the versions sold, including special variations built in small production runs or as one-offs. Lastly, there is a valuable restoration guide and a list of the principal scale models.
