The first illustrated and complete book on one of the top marques of the Olympus of automotive history, written in collaboration with the de Tomaso family. The volume traces the sporting and entrepreneurial story of Alejandro de Tomaso, exhaustively illustrating the characteristics of the models that have made the Automobili De Tomaso famous around the world, such as the Pantera, truly a cult object, especially in the United States. Many different dimensions are interwoven in de Tomaso’s story: the world of the gentlemen-sportsmen who animated the motor-racing competitions in the 1950s-1960s, the genuine and somewhat ‘provincial’ charisma of the artist-mechanics of the Modena area, and the story of the great American industrial dynasties and the intricate developments of the Italian automotive industry. The book is born from the collaboration with the de Tomaso family, who for the first time have opened the private archives of the founder of the auto maker, making available to the public at large the private photographs, the historical images of all the models and the technical drawings, revealing the secrets and the behind-the-scenes episodes of a legendary production. To further enrich the book an ad hoc photographic campaign will be realized. The texts in the volume, rigorous yet accessible to the non-expert, will be entrusted to a scholar of the history of this Italian business, while the technical section will be written by a team of sports car experts chosen together with the de Tomaso family.

ALFA ROMEO 75

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.
