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.
Almost 4000 Alfa Romeo Montreals were produced between 1970 and 1977, and sound cars are readily available today at very affordable prices. It is a powerful car that can be immensely enjoyable to drive and that turns heads wherever it appears. But up to now, the lack of detailed information about the Montreal has 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 vehicle. It explains how the car'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.
Lavishly illustrated ... not only a valuable reference and workshop guide but [...] will be enjoyed as a coffee table book also ... It is one you can pick up, open on any page and get completely absorbed. Every page is interesting
Great book, compliments!

Best Book of 2008
Graeme Hurst, Classic & Sports Car
BOOK OF THE MONTH. Taylor's writing is clear and thorough as he guides readers through the design, its problems and improvements. A wealth of photographs superbly illustrates all points. A staggering effort born of the obsessive author's pioneering website and the assistance of fellow Montreal owners.

AlI the photography is in colour and you're left in no doubt as to what should go where or how a Montreal should look. A good starting point for anyone wanting to familiarise themselves with one of Alfa's most distinctive cars.
Laid out clearly and boldly in a style that has become something of a hallmark of Veloce Publishing, the coverage is truly comprehensive ... this exceptional book is a bible not just for the owner and restorer but for the collector of associated ephemera. Perhaps the greatest compliment one can pay this book is that it may finally lay to rest the myth that the Montreal is a temperamental beast which is expensive and difficult to maintain. The Montreal has long suffered an undervalued reputation. This book may go a long way to right the balance.

Browsing through this 320-page detailed tome it is hard not to be beguiled by the Montreal's individual style and stunning range of period colour schemes which combine to make it one of the most covetable cars of its generation ... this book is essential reading both before and after taking the plunge.
