Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupes 1963-1976 Limited Edition Ultra (Brooklands Books Road Tests Series): A Collection of Articles…

What makes the perfect sporting coupe? Many would say the combination of a classic twin-cam engine with a body designed by one of the Italian masters. For such people, Alfa Romeo built their Giulia coupes. Enthusiasts of the marque who read this book will probably know already how fiendishly complicated the Giulia range became. Others, perhaps encountering these attractive cars for the first time here, are just about to find out! From the earliest curvaceous coupes by Bertone, through the more aggressively styled Zagato SS and the very special TZ models, and on to the final 1750 and 2000 cars with their much squarer styling, the Giulia coupes offer a remarkable variety. In the 1960s and 1970s, enthusiasts could delight to the sight and sound of these Alfas on the race tracks, where they regularly took on and conquered much larger touring and sports cars. Now that they are no longer in production, surviving examples of the Giulia coupes are greatly appreciated by those same enthusiasts. That so many Giulias succumbed to the rust for which Italian cars of the 1960s and 1970s were notorious only makes the possession of a good example all the more desirable now. I am in no doubt that this book will persuade many more people of the undoubted merits of these sporting coupes. And I am sure that many motoring writers, like me, will welcome it as a handy reference source in a very complicated area of Alfa Romeo history! This book traces the progress of one of the greatest coupes of all time as well as one of Alfa’s best cars. The story is told through new model intros, road tests & buying second hand articles. Models covered: Sprint GT 1600, TZ, GTC, GTA, SS, GT 1300 & 1600 Junior, GTV 1600, 1750 & 2000.
