In (pursuit of) which was [Nacque cosi], in collaboration with Bertone, the Montreal or, better, its prototype, which for the occasion was equipped with the traditional mechanicals of the Giulia. The styling, aggressive and untamed [accattivante], as suited a sports car of great pedigree, was inscribed [iscreveva] in one of the genres which, in those same years [proprio in quegli anni], saw Bertone excel with masterpieces of the standard of the Miura and the Fiat Dino coupe.
The production Montreal, unfortunately joining the market nearly four years later, gave up in part its praiseworthy stylistic equilibrium, but in exchange gained a powerful V8 engine derived from the competition 33.
Capable of achieving 220 km/hr, well finished and given an undeniable personality, at the time the Montreal was appreciated by the more sophisticated Alfisti, while today its standing [quotazioni], impelled also by the small number of examples produced, is in continuous growth among the collectors.
This volume, which reconstructs the story of it with a wealth [dovizia] of details and technical data, is the first monograph dedicated to this legendary coupe of the House of Arese.
