This book covers the history of the Bianchina from its origins to today. The first part is devoted to the birth of the Autobianchi factory and the developments that led to the production of the 110 B model in 1957. The technical characteristics, differences between the various series, the chassis and engine numbers, the colours and upholstery of all of them (transformable, cabriolet, saloon, panoramic, van and estate car) are described year by year. Illustrative material and original brochures of the period are called on to bring to life the various aesthetic and mechanical details. The second part is entirely devoted to restoration, spotlighting the various stages of reconditioning with invaluable advice and descriptive photographs of individual details, from the carcass to the finished vehicle. The third part offers collection aspects and customs linked to the model with archive pictures of the principal events, the special versions, accessories, publicity exploitation and the clubs devoted to the car from Desio which still attracts thousands of enthusiasts even today.

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 Unpublished colour pictures, detailed technical specifications and a section on restoration tell of the genesis and evolution of these two unique Autobianchis, not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.

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.

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.
