The Alfa Romeo 105 series coupé, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Bertone was considered to be one of his greatest designs. Not only as one of the best looking and handling classic saloon cars of the period, but the advanced specification with its five-speed gearbox, all round disc brakes, independent suspension and powerful twin-cam engine still has the capability to embarrass many of its modern counterparts.
These capable performance cars were soon factory modified for extra performance, with road versions (Stradalé) and competition (Corse) cars becoming the GTA (Grand Touring Alleggerita) and later the pure competition GTAm.
The car on offer her today started life as a 1971 Alfa 1750 but has been through an extensive recent rebuild in order to bring it up to historic race specifications. The conversion was finished in 2016 and the car has been registered with az Historic Technical Passport by the FIA valid until 2026.
The old 1750 engine was removed and replaced with a new 2-litre engine and race gearbox. The car also benefits from a new rear axle, disc brakes, sports seats and harnesses and aluminium door skins and bonnet. This is a great looking car and ready to take out on the track for the budding racing driver.
