Want An Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo Evoluzione Homologation Special?

If you’re looking for a rad homologation special to add in your collection, then this fender-flared Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo Evoluzione would like to have a word with you.

The Alfa Romeo 75 -or Milano, depending on which side of the Atlantic you are- was the last mass-produced rear-driven model the company made before giving us the Giulia. What you see in the pictures is the rarest version of the 75 family, the Turbo Evoluzione, which was a limited run.

More specifically, this is #468 out of the 500 Turbo Evoluziones ever made, currently offered in auction by Bring A Trailer. The car was imported in the US from Italy back in 2013 and is currently showing 116,000km (around 72k miles) on the odometer.

The most obvious visual changes of the Turbo Evoluzione is, of course, the fiberglass bodykit, which includes new fenders, bumpers and side sills, along with matching red 15-inch alloy wheels and that wonderfully ‘80s black decals.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.8-liter engine that, on paper, puts out 155hp, the same as the regular 75 1.8 Turbo. However, the engine is believed to make closer to 170hp as it had unique valve timing, a dual fuel pump and a relocated air filter, not to mention the slightly smaller bore of the engine.

These limited edition Alfas came even with a different chassis code than the regular 75s and many of them were converted to race cars, so to find one in this condition in the U.S. is like finding a needle in a haystack.

    Kinda. It is actually pretty rad. And very red.

    • Bo Hanan

      Too red, as in red-hot-mess. I owned a Milano Verde w/ a 3.0 liter engine. It was black w/ gray interior. Fun car. This is just too much.

      • Vassilis

        Was it reliable?

        • Michelin

          Dear Vassilis, if you came in Italy you can see on the roads a lot of reliable Alfas.
          You aver do the same comment, but it is a stereotyp.
          In Italy and everywhere unreliable is people who speak without know ….

        • Bo Hanan

          Yes! And hauled ass too. 188HP (big engine in little car) 2700lbs.

      • Alex Rossi

        There is no such name as Alfa Romeo 75 Milano Verde. Milano or Quadrifoglio Verde

        • In America, 75 is badged as Milano, Verde is the trim levels.

          And there is QV version of 75 with 1,8L Turbo engine.

        • Bo Hanan

          Go back under the rock Alex.
          Thanks Archer!

  • fabri99
