FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITION: Perhaps one of the world's most endearing sports coupes, the Alfa Romeo 105-series GT Coupe won instant popularity when first released in 1963. This publication by well-known English writer John Tipler was first published in 1992 and this edition has been updated and enlarged to include the Giulia's success in current day historic motor racing. The book follows an accepted path by placing the Giulia within the history of the marque before moving on to the initial design by Bertone and its production. That's followed by the model's prodigious competition history in races and on circuits throughout the world. There is, of course, detailed mention of Autodelta and the highly successful GTA competition version. Due attention is also given to choosing and restoring a Giulia Coupe and quite rightly, this section has also been upgraded for modern enthusiasts. The final chapter is completely new and features the car's position today in Europe's historic racing scene. Finishing with useful appendices on specifications, period advertisements, current specialists and so on, it's a worthwhile book for Alfa enthusiasts. --Australian Classic Car
