The Montreal is one of the most exotic series production cars ever manufactured by Alfa Romeo. The combination of a race-bred 200bhp V8 engine with stylish Bertone coachwork puts it in a class of its own. This is the first English-language book dedicated solely to the Alfa Romeo Montreal: a comprehensive reference about buying, maintaining and improving the car, containing a wealth of technical information and practical tips for owners and potential owners. Limited to 500 copies!
Almost 4000 Alfa Romeo Montreals were produced between 1970 and 1977, and sound cars are readily available today at affordable prices, although they are appreciating fast. The Montreal is a powerful car that can be immensely enjoyable to drive and that turns heads wherever it appears. However, until the original edition was published, the lack of detailed information about the Montreal had frustrated many owners and discouraged others from purchasing the car.
This book provides detailed technical information and practical tips to help owners with maintenance, tuning and upgrading the performance of this unique car. It explains how the Montreal’s specific weaknesses can be rectified so that it can realise its full potential. It also contains information about Montreal history, production, racing, meetings, reviews, drawings, art, special tools, paint finishes, models, prices and service providers.
This comprehensive book can help present owners enjoy the Alfa Romeo Montreal to the fullest, and it shows other discerning car enthusiasts that this beautiful and potent classic GT is a hidden treasure that is well worth seeking out.
