    "Il Monstro" is about right.

    I like it.

    Somehow it reminds me of a sci-fi vehicle. Big and blocky and probably very fast.

    What's the engine size?

    3Ltr V6 which pushes 210bhp I think, but it can easily be bored out to 3.5. But remember, this car is Light, just over a tonne I think.

    Dude, do you remember me telling you about Dawie De Villiers?

    He runs 24v v6 Alfa engines with twin Mitsubishi turbos to 550bhp...madness...

    *n

    (more proof, were it needed, that South Africans are just bonkers)

    I saw one not so very long ago. In the flesh (iron) they look even better.

    I've only ever seen one, very rare. 1300 built I think. Then again, I've seen <10 Spiders on the roads on my travels.

    Penski, mmm that sounds fun, there was a 156 going on eBay a couple of months back for £1500, totally stripped with two alfa V6 engines for racing :D

    Hear hear!!!

    You just need to live there and you get a bit of the 'bonkness' (PML) rub off on you.



    And I suggest you purchase a spare engine with your next Alfa, or will it be something else that you will break next time! :p lmao

    Be quiet you... I am once again carless... :(















    (Only because I've booked my car into the garage to replace the throttle cable because it was frayed at one end and was beggining to stick.)

    Lol, after not seeing one of these fugly "vehicles" before in my life, i saw one last thursday, an immaculate black one; looks quite a bit nicer in the flesh actually, still think it's a waste. Very distinctive car though, why stick to the normal imo? :)

    Although the majority were sprayed red, there was also a few yellow and black ones made, so some choice :eyebrow:
