The Alfa Romeo Alfasud: The History of the Legend (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


When the Alfasud was launched at the Turin Motor Show in 1971, it immediately attracted attention, not only for its sleek styling by Giorgetto Giugiaro and aerodynamic design but also for its advanced engineering and layout. As Alfa Romeo's first volume small front-wheel drive production car, the Alfasud set new and unsurpassed levels of handling and refinement.

In this comprehensive book, Colin Metcalfe puts the Alfasud project in the context of Alfa Romeo's ideals and objectives and examines the technical innovations and advanced features of the car. Every model in the Alfasud range is covered in detail, including the two major facelifts. The author explains what to look out for when buying an Alfasud. He also provides practical tips and advice for keeping it on the road.

Drawing on his unique knowledge as an active member of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club, Colin Metcalfe has written the definitive concise guide to one of the ground breaking small family cars of its time.
