Around typical Restomod vehicles comes the brand Alfa Romeo certainly not immediately to mind. The top dogs and absolute favorites tend to come from Ford, Dodge and now and then also from Lincoln or Cadillac. But the team is coming Alfaholics Ltd. into play, then that changes. Then all of a sudden, Italian classics based on Alfa Romeo vehicles take center stage. And what an old Alfa looks like as a cool restomod, this example in bright red impressively shows. And we came across the vehicle because it is apparently the darling of Jeremy Clarkson is. Between that time BBC Top Gear Series, the subsequent recordings for The Grand Tour and the humorous exploits on his Farm In Oxfordshire, the 60-year-old journalist also writes for the author's section of Sunday Times.

And there it was recently called the best vehicles of 2020 to be chosen. And Jeremy chose that too Alfa Romeo from Alfaholicswho even received top marks. Specifically, it was about that Alfaholic's GTA-R 290, which at £ 320.000 ($ 437.110 at current exchange rates) was one of two restomods on his list and the second most expensive. The built Twin Spark four-cylinder comes from a Alfa Romeo 75 sports sedan and delivers after restoration, installing a Individual throttle system and more Tuning changes like one 2,3-liter displacement expansion or a Motec control considerable 240 PS. He's on a Manual transmission coupled with close translation and sends its power through Copper limited slip differential to beautiful 7 × 15 in size GTA Superleggera alloy wheels with Yokohama Neova AD08R 195/55 R15 Tires.

Incidentally, the classic is acoustically noticeable with a handmade one Sports exhaust system Stainless Steel. It is braked with a Billet aluminum braking system with six pistons on the front axle and 300 mm internally ventilated discs as well as two pistons an der Rear axle and 267 mm discs. The result is one thing more absolute Beauty coupled with enormous driving pleasure. The reason why such a car is expensive, lies in the attention to detailthat is in every Alfaholics conversion. Because no GTA-R 290 is with another identical. Every vehicle needs good from start to finish 3.000 working hoursbecause no screw or nut is left untouched. By the way, there is with the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA-R even a variant with Full carbon body. She is approx. 70 kg lighter compared to the normal Alfaholics GTA-290R.

The variant in full carbon undercuts the 800 mark in terms of curb weight but loosely. In addition, each vehicle receives the current one Ultraleggera billet titanium sports suspension, In addition to less weight, in every respect improved has been. Finally, we would like to briefly go into the interior with that Recaro sports seats, dashboard with Leather- and Alcantara cover and Wilton Wool carpets convinced.
