Unlike the previous editions of the ’90s, this book concentrates on the Abarth 58 and 70 HP versions of the Autobianchi A112, the rarest of all and the most sought after by collectors. This is an across the board analysis of the car: it contains a general historic introduction on Autobianchi, Carlo Abarth and the A112 itself. They were the cars that began the decline of Abarth in 1971, and the book contains an analysis of the entire evolution of the seven series that succeeded them in the following 14 years of production. There is also a section devoted to documentation: the use and maintenance manuals, catalogues, leaflets, advertising and a segment giving advice on the Abarths’ identification, purchase, restoration and quotations. The book is completed by the car’s sports career in Italy and other countries, culminating in the eight Trofeo A112 Abarth 70HP events and closes with reference to today, including the vintage races and the various clubs devoted to this important car.

ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA SPIDER

More than 50 years since it first appeared at the 1956 Turin Motor Show, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider is still the symbol of the Italian school open two-seater cars. One of timeless fascination to which Carrozzeria Pinin Farina gave the class and elegance that distinguishes it from all others. This new updated edition of the noted book by Gaetano De Rosa covers the technical and stylistic evolution of the various bodies and is accompanied by a special section devoted to motor sport. The publication has been enlarged to contain a useful and detailed restoration guide too. A book for all the fortunate owners who want to take this evergreen car back to its original splendour.

ALFA ROMEO ALFASUD

At the end of the ’60s, Alfa Romeo began to write a new chapter in its history by entering the market with a medium-low class car that was true to the company’s sporting vocation and with a form of technology only experimented with in timid fashion until then. The little Alfa’s front-wheel drive and a transverse mounted boxer engine, signalled a real turnaround that even involved a selected production centre: Pomigliano d’Arco, near Naples. The Alfasud was a car that not only left a deep impression on the technological and industrial history of the automotive Italy, but also had major repercussions on the social, occupational and political life of the country between the early ’70s and the end of the ’80s, which included an highly active sporting life rich with success.

AUTOBIANCHI PRIMULA e A111

Finally following up on a project he had had in mind from the time of the Topolino, in the autumn of 1964 engineer Dante Giacosa was able to launch the first front wheel drive Fiat. In reality it wasn’t a Fiat at all but an Autobianchi, the satellite marque based at Desio. As well as for its “all up front”, the Primula also stood out due to another courageous and unusual decision: the 3-door body with a hatchback. Unveiled to a rather cool reception from the marketplace, in part for its not exactly competitive price, the Primula declined into a series of almost infinite bodies: 2, 4 and 5 door and a coupé. In the mechanical area, the old engine was derived from the 1100, but that was replaced by a new power unit from the Fiat 124. A year later, the car joined the A111 and then replaced it, with the mechanics of the Primula and a much more conventional, three-volume body. It was a saloon more sought after than the Fiat models of the day, but it left the market in the autumn of 1972. Unpublished colour pictures, detailed technical specifications and a section on restoration tell of the genesis and evolution of these two unique Autobianchis, not expressly conceived and designed as utilities.
