Description Description
Alfa Romeo’s World Championship-winning sports car, the Tipo 33, enjoyed a long career; as a factory car, as well as in private hands from 1967 until 1977. The great Italian motor sport engineer Carlo Chiti designed and ran a prolific number of different models of this Tipo.

Unfortunately, nothing of the history of these developments was documented at the time. That is where authors Peter Collins and Ed McDonough come in. After an intense investigation and numerous personal interviews, to uncover much about this marvelous sports prototype, they are able to present Alfa Romeo Tipo 33.

The fruits of their labors abound, manifesting as many previously unseen photographs and the personal recollections of the prime movers in the Tipo 33's career. If you like Alfas, you'll love this book.
