The gorgeous Alfaholics Giulia Sprint GTA-R 270 strikes back, only this time we see it being driven properly on a track for evo’s Track Car of the Year.
It’s perhaps the ultimate embodiment of Alfa Romeo’s 105-series, this truly stunning Giulia Sprint takes the magic of the brand into a whole new territory.
The quality of the build is just mesmerizing, with the car featuring a bootlid, bonnet and doors made out of carbon fiber. The 2.0-litre Twin Spark aluminum-block engine produces for the occasion 215hp which might not sound a lot, but for a car that tips the scales at 835kg the power is enough to give it a 270hp/ton ratio (hence the GTA-R 270).
Alfaholics replaces every part that could be machined from billet aluminum in order to save weight, with the front wishbones made from titanium. The suspension features a set of aluminum two-way adjustable shocks paired with lightweight springs. The brakes now feature 300mm discs with six-pot calipers up front and 267mm discs with two-pot items at the rear.
They have been called the Singer of Alfa Romeo but UK-based Alfaholics have been around long before the restomod frenzy hit the classic car market, providing Alfisti with performance parts for a wide range of Alfas.
The car you see here represents the latest step in the company’s course as they have started selling complete cars to customers looking for the best classic Alfa possible. As for the price, the GTA-R 270 is right up there with the best of the best, demanding close to £200,000 ($288,000 in current exchange rates) for a complete car.
You can keep the new Quadrifoglio. Hell, keep your Ferraris too. All we want is more of this.
