Volume two “Alleggerita - Technical documentation” and includes the complete homolgation papers of the TZ/Giulia TI Super/GTA/GTJ/GTAJ/GTAm as well as the original Alfa Romeo documents in english about the technical characteristics of the GTA and the GTAJ. In addition to this there are many photos of the original parts for these cars. 464 pages with 708 color photos.
Volume three “Alleggerita - Register”with a register of the GTA/GTAJ/GTAm. 528 pages with 396 b/w photos and 125 color photos.
The books will only be sold as a set. The price is 349 Euro plus shipping. The books are numbered with the same stamp which was used on the first edition starting with 0001 up to 3000 for the english edition. The german edition will be numbered 0001 up to 1500.
This will be the final edition of Alleggerita, the publisher will not do a reprint or a revised edition in the future. What they have planned for the next years to come though is to publish something like “Alleggerita - Additions to the register” once they have found new information about these cars or a “Alleggerita -Technical documentation part 2” once they have found the missing parts that they were unable to photograph until now.
Tony Adriaensens: "Proud to announce that after almost 20 years, a revised and updated version of Alleggerita is available.
The exciting news about the new Alleggerita ‘Maggiorata’ is of great interest to the many Alfista and I promised to help Patrick wherever possible – that includes to inform as many as possible about the new book and I can assure you (having seen volume two already) that it will be a fantastic publication!
Much time has passed since I did that first edition which really looks like a small booklet compared to Patrick’s work – he and Martin Uebelher did a fine job!
The first copies are available after many, many years; finally a revised edition at a very reasonable price compared to the ridiculous money people paid for that first edition after it sold out around 1999"
