With its stylish Bertone coachwork and race-bred 200bhp V8 engine, the Alfa Romeo Montreal is one of the most stunning series production automobiles of the twentieth century. Almost 4000 Montreals were built, and sound cars are readily available today at very affordable prices. This book is a comprehensive pictorial tribute to the Montreal. This is a visual testimonial to a powerful and beautiful coupé that was born as a futuristic concept and transformed into a dream car that came true. In a portfolio of 575 illustrations, it paints a unique and detailed graphic portrait of all the facets of this elegant and powerful classic GT, revealing why it is immensely enjoyable to drive and turns heads wherever it appears.
