Having left motor racing in the early ‘50s – at least officially – Alfa Romeo returned to the sport once again at the start of the following decade due to the commitment and enthusiasm of Autodelta. This Alfa offshoot distinguished itself by preparing and racing about 30 of the manufacturer’s different cars that really did make history. Among them, the Giulia TZ holds a place at the head of the crowd. It had a 1.5-litre, 113 hp engine from the Giulia SS, front and rear suspension of modern conception, disc brakes and an especially bold body shaped by Zagato on a modern tubular chassis. Those were the strong points of this car, which scored results of absolute prestige in its brief career at Sebring, in the Targa Florio, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Tour de France.
Vito Witting da Prato, already the author of a meticulously written book on the Alfa Romeo SZ, covers the winning, human, technical and sporting factors of this unforgettable car in a monumental work. A book which, to the precise text and painstaking historical reconstruction, has been added illustrations of previously unpublished pictures and technical designs by Autodelta.

LA FERRARI SECONDO FORGHIERI: DAL 1947 A OGGI

Many of the Ferrari single seaters and sports racers that won world championships were born of the imagination of Mauro Forghieri and designed by him. That was the case with the John Surtees 1964 158 F1 and the unbeatable Ts of the Lauda-Regazzoni era. The same can be said of the 250 P, the 330 P3 and P4, as well, naturally, as the 312 ‘PB’, the unquestioned protagonists among the sports racing cars of the 1960s and 1970s. The life of the outstanding Mauro Forghieri is told in this book, in which noted stories, especially those that have remained unpublished for years, intertwine in an riveting narrative, supported by a wealth of absolutely unpublished illustrations, a large portion of which come from the publisher’s archives.

AUTODELTA: L’ALFA ROMEO E LE CORSE 1963-1983

Unforgettable victories or burning regrets? Although controversial, the Autodelta era was legendary, a period that deeply affected Alfa Romeo and the world of racing. It was established as little more than a small workshop for the assembly of Giulia TZs but then, because of the energy of the charismatic Carlo Chiti – the originator of many cars and the person who inspired even more anecdotes – it became Alfa Romeo’s official motor racing department: the legendary GTA, the 33, the rally versions of the Turbodelta right through to Formula 1. This work contains the result of high detailed historic research and hundreds of photographs that recount the Autodelta story, comprising two world championships and an infinite series of victories in just about all the categories. As well as a few lost opportunities.
