Alfa Romeo GTA Recreation: A project «made in Spain»

PHOTOS ALFA ROMEO GTV SCALINO GTA RECREATION: MANAGEMOTOR

In the restoration of classics there are many currents. Sometimes you choose to return the car to its factory condition. Others the bodywork is not touched but underneath you get to change even the engine. Many even choose to respect the wear marks called "patina”. Be that as it may, the truth is that sometimes the most striking interventions appear.

In fact, when one of them is based on modifying the original vehicle to create a unique piece ... If it has been done with good taste and prudence, what usually appears is a true 1/1 whim. This is the case we have today. Under what appears outwardly an Alfa Romeo GTA hides a GTV 1300 Scalino. Or well, rather, what we have is something totally new.

And it is that the set of mechanical modifications carried out by the restoration workshop specialized in Italian classics ItalClassic has created a unique vehicle. A project carried out at the whim of the client, thinking to respect the essence of the rabid Italian sports car, projecting it to the possibility of using it every day ...

ALFA ROMEO GTA RECREATION: WIDENED AND POWERED

From the visual section the hallmark of this vehicle has been vitaminize the original Alfa Romeo. As soon as you see it, two things stand out: the widening of the wheel arches and the visible rivets. This gives it a very rough and sporty aesthetic. Sinuous lines for a muscular body under which hides a 2-liter engine of around 150CV.

A not inconsiderable increase in power, since the GTV 1300 Scalino on which it is based had a 1300cc in-line four-cylinder with about 50CV less ... the boys version of ItalClassic we too would have put those 15 ”GTA Replica wheels. In addition, adjustable Koni shock absorbers have been mounted, along with a rebuilt limited slip differential rear axle to better ensure the transmission of this greater power.

Power that hits the ground after going through an original but completely restored gearbox. That ensures continuing the nervous behavior of the original Alfa, which is more stable in this version of ItalClassic thanks to a thicker front stabilizer bar. The set has a more effective braking thanks to the improvement of the front discs and calipers.

Meanwhile, inside everything remains the same ... To finish off a set in a neutral color and little seen that we are sure it will delight the Alfistas this holidays 😉

Through the news from La Escudería, we will travel the winding roads of Maranello listening to the roar of the Italian V12; We will travel Route66 in search of the power of the great American engines; we will get lost in the narrow English lanes tracking the elegance of their sports cars; We will speed up the braking in the curves of the Monte Carlo Rally and we will even get dusty in a garage while rescuing lost jewels.
