This is the first ever English language book about Alpine Renault and the development of the first turbocharged racing car. It describes the history of the two companies involved in the project, the thinking behind the creation of this revolutionary Grand Prix car and the men concerned - from the first ideas to the final ultimate success.

The author covers the development of an experimental car by Alpine in the 1960s, the work of Gordini the engine-tuning genius, the early tests, and the final Renault-built Grand Prix car built to specific Formula 1 regulations.

The book is stunningly illustrated and is completed by a full record of the developments and races during the Turbo era and includes personal input from interviews with the men of the time, transcript of first public test, Race reports on every race, over 200 photographs and special illustrations.
