The Legendary 2.3
de Simon Moore, Parkside Publications 2000, 962 pages 26 x 27 cm, 3 volumes couverture rigide illustrée et coffret, 73 photos couleur et 1289 photos NB, texte anglais.
Simon Moore's first book, The Immortal 2.9, was published by Parkside in 1986 and met with instant critical acclaim. It won the Nicholas-Joseph Cugnot Award, presented by the Society of Automotive Historians, as the Best Automotive Book of 1986. The book broke new ground for an automotive publication by focussing upon the histories of the individual Alfa Romeo 8C2900 cars of the late 1930s. Several commentators have included The Immortal 2.9 on their lists of the best automotive books of all time. A new edition of The Immortal 2.9 is being released in November, 2008.
Following in the tradition of The Immortal 2.9 — Simon's second book, The Legendary 2.3 — a long-awaited history of the remarkable 8C2300 Alfa Romeo sports and racing cars produced from 1931 to 1934. The Legendary 2.3 chronicles the colorful individual histories of almost all of the 188 cars produced in the 8C2300 series.
The Legendary 2.3 has something for all car enthusiasts: racing fans, admirers of coachwork design, history buffs. The book will also be of special interest to Ferrari enthusiasts, since it recounts the transition of Scuderia Ferrari from a small team sponsored by a few wealthy amateur drivers until it became the de facto Alfa Romeo works racing team. The racing history of each of the Scuderia Ferrari 8C2300 cars is reviewed in detail.
Because the 8C2300 has become such an icon among auto enthusiasts, its story commanded the highest possible production standards. We are confident that we have produced a book worthy of the 8C2300—one which will become a benchmark for future automotive books. We believe that The Legendary 2.3 is the most comprehensive and detailed book ever published about a particular model of automobile.
The Legendary 2.3 has received two major awards from automotive history societies in 2000. The French Academie Bellecour awarded the book its top prize, the "Prix Bellecour", as the best automotive book of the year, the only time the Academie has given this award to a book not in the French language. Secondly, the US-based Society of Automotive Historians granted its Cugnot Award of Distinction "in recognition of particular merit in the field of automotive history in the English language during the year 2000."
