The history of the Alfa Romeo 1900, a great new beginning after World War II for Alfa Romeo.

Rooted in the historical tradition of his product philosophy, Alfa Romeo foresaw and realized the worldwide evolving need for a quick trip limousine with luxurious comfort, excellent handling and high performance in the early 50s.
The 1900 represents the first time the successful synthesis of these values and thus raises the difference between series -and- "Coach Built"vehicles.
Its centerpiece is the designed by Orazio Satta engine with dual overhead camshafts, a design that has revolutionized the modern engine constructions. In the TI version of this engine produces 100 horsepower, making it subscribes itself to international race victories.It only took a little more than two years to develop a completely new sports sedan. In my opinion, that is a record-breaking milestone which deserves a closer look.
Yet, not only the factory, but also the coach builders of that era contributed to make the 1900 project something special.Within the course of a few years, designers and coachbuilders ignited nothing less than a continuous firework of new cars. At the end of this era, 17 different more or less small car manufacturers had built up to 70 creations based on the 1900s floorpan, which was specifically supplied by Alfa Romeo and delighted car enthusiasts worldwide.
All these vehicles, approximately 70 in number, will be presented for the first time completely and in detail in this book.

The first edition of this compendium was in 2013 awarded the German Car Book Prize.
