480 pages, 500 illustrations. The Revised Edition of The Immortal 2.9 is finally here! A new edition of this classic motoring book has been anxiously awaited by automotive enthusiasts for many years. First published in 1986, the original edition became an instant classic and established Simon Moore as the world's foremost authority on the history of Alfa Romeo's famous pre-war eight-cylinder cars. Only 2,500 copies of the first edition were printed and the book has not been available for twenty years. 37663 E. N° de ref. de la librería
Sinopsis: The original edition of this book was considered the master work on this legendary Alfa model and was much sought-after when it went out-of-print. This Revised Edition goes beyond the scope of the original edition to include information about cars which can be considered derivatives of the 2.9, including Alfa's 12-cylinder sports cars and the S 10 prototypes produced on the eve of World War II. Also included is an extensive chapter about Tommy Lee, the colorful Californian who owned more 2.9 cars than anyone. Accordingly, the Revised Edition of The Immortal 2.9 is not a reprinting of the old book, nor is it just a rehash of that first volume. It is an entirely new book, with 480 pages, 99 color photos and 401 black and white photos. In all respects, it is more than twice the size of the first edition. Well more than half the photos in the Revised Edition were not in the original book. Strongly recommended.
