Alpine and Renault describes the history of each company involved, the thinking behind the creation of the first turbo-charged Grand Prix car, and the men concerned – from the first ideas to the final ultimate success of a Grand Prix victory. The book covers the development of an experimental car by Alpine in the 1960s, and the story of the men who worked with Gordini, the engine-tuning genius who went on to create a power unit that changed the world’s thinking on engine design. The early tests, first car designed at Alpine, and the Renault-designed and built Grand Prix car made to the specific Formula 1 regulations are described, as well as the full story of the Renault Turbo Grand Prix cars, including interviews with the men of the time, a transcript of the first public test, and race reports on every event. Contains over 400 photos (mainly colour) and special illustrations.

FERRARI 312T 1975 TO 1980 (312T T2 T3 T4 T5 & T6): an insight into design, engineering, maintenance and operation of Ferrari’s series of multiple World Championship-winning F1 cars

Designed by legendary Ferrari designer Mauro Forghieri, the 3-litre flat-12 engined Ferrari 312T first appeared in 1975, and was continually developed to compete for six years, until the end of 1980. The cars won three Drivers’ World Championships – two for Niki Lauda, in 1975 and 1977, and one for Jody Scheckter, in 1979 – and took Ferrari to four Constructors’ World Championships, also winning races in the hands of Clay Regazzoni, Carlos Reutemann, and the incomparable Gilles Villeneuve. In 1976, the 312T was the car with which Lauda famously fought a season-long battle with James Hunt for the World Championship – the subject of the 2013 Hollywood blockbuster Rush. Packed with stunning period images, fresh insight and a detailed look at a restored car today, this manual chronicles an iconic series of grand prix cars that raced in one of Formula 1’s most exciting, dangerous and charismatic eras.
