The complete history of this legendary car, from conception to retirement and beyond.

The 158 or”Alfetta” raced very successfully in the period 1946 to 1948 and then again between 1950 and 1951 – the first two years of the Formula 1 World Championship. Behind the success lay a darker story of in-house plotting and jealousy between the leading characters at Alfa Romeo including Enzo Ferrari, Vittorio Jano and many others.

Black boards, gilt title to spine. B/w and colour photos. Book is in genrally good condition with a very clean and unmarked dust cover. One or two of the intro pages have slight spotting/marking to edges but not affecting reading.
