    That is absolutely stunning – does he need a chauffeur?

    Brothers suck 👿 when they have cooler kit than you. I know mine does.

    Car’s a beauty.

    On the plus side for you, you’ll probably only ever see it in the garage, aka your brother’s new permanent home. 😀

    That actual car, yes.

    Final build is original standard Stradale specification, just as the car would have left the production line, but with a 150BHP engine upgrade and LSD installation into the original GTA axle to make it more suitable to match the customer’s desired fast road and occasional track use.

    Also has a roll cage with removable triangulation and seats can easily be replaced with floor mount competition versions so he can race it.

    Race it? is he mad? it should be in a ferris beuler style garage in a forest… good on him if he does put it on a track its what it was made for… please dont crash it, i would be upset…

    That is lovely… I’m not big into cars, but I had a 33 cloverleaf back when I was a student and have always lusted after classic alfas.

    alfas were designed and built to be driven.

    Jesus, that’s beautiful
    I had a boggo GT1600 junior a long time ago, was a pile of rust under the paint, but still made the heart sing.
    A GTA in that condition is just pure porn.

    I’m glad I don’t have your brother. How embarrasing having a brother or friend with a seriously nice car. Can you imagine your partner silently thinking ‘why doesn’t he have one too’?

    As a recent convert to the alfa marque (GT) I must say that is bloody lovely!

    I’ve no idea and, tbh, I wouldn’t ask him.

    A quick google would seem to indicate that “‘kin loads” is the going rate.

    I had a 1600GT Junior too vinneyh, same problems with rust on mine however me and my mate rebuilt it and God did I love that car. Drove it hard and stuck some smiley miles in it.

    I know that feeling only too well. My brother’s owned a Series 1 E-Type 3.8 FHC for the last 20 years…

    Borrow mine then, if you like. He’s got a fantastic house and garden, but only an 04 plate Yaris (his environmentally sensitivity is so severe that he comes out in a rash whenever he gets off public transport).

    Oh, and he’s a bit short. And a smartarse. 😀

    Very nice, love a Bertone Coupe..so that’s running a Modern 2L Twin Spark engine?

    Premier Icon wwaswas

    No, it’s the original twin spark engine with a few tweaks to up the power.

    Off to see it in the flesh at the RAC Club in Epsom this afternoon 🙂

    I expect I’ll be allowed to sit in it and make ‘Vroom!’ noises.

    Beautiful. I don’t know what it is about the ‘simple’ old Alfa designs but they look great.

    Very gorgeous.
    I almost bought a 1600 Stradale with a mate in 1986, but we couldn’t stump up the £10000 they wanted for it. Both of us will regret it for the rest of our lives…

    Saw a very convincing replica GTA built on a Steel bodied step front 1300 Junior at Silverstone. Had all the right bits, including the rear suspension mods but with a tuned 1750 motor IIRC. He wanted £28000 for that

    I had 3 1600 Juniors, two of them as my only vehicle. Lovely subtle things.
    My mate has still got his 1750 GTV which he has owned since 1987, plus a 101 series Giulietta Coupe

    Tell you brother from me he is now on my Lucky Bas***d list and I hope he really enjoys it.

    Thanks for showing and bringing back memories

    Wow, that is lovely.

    Looks like a brand new car.

    Bet it’s fantastic to drive and sounds amazing!!!

    Went and saw it last night;

    and had a 30 minute ride around the Surrey lanes (as a passenger).

    Bloody hell it’s quick.

    760kg weight and 150bhp make for rapid acceleration and the noise is just fantastic 🙂

    There were #bloodycyclists everywhere though 😉

    Really is a fascinating car too, the way that the alloy roof has been rivetted to the steel frame shows it was built purely for competition but with a nod to the FIA homologation rules it has fitted rubber mats.

    To illustrate how light it is – you can’t press on the door panels or handles to shut them – it’ll dent the alloy – you have to press on the frame just at the bottom of the (plastic) window glass.

    There were some other cars in the ‘blimey, that’s nice’ category there too;

    I love yellow E-Types;

    the one I’d probably most want to own as a long term thing, I can see myself wafting down to the south of France in this;

    these three were ‘ok’ too 😉

    Oh, Dear Lord, that Alfa is just lovely! I’d rather have that than any Ferrari, other than a 250 GTO.
    I’m just going to have a lie down for a bit…
