Recycled Hawtness: Alfaholics GTA-R 290
The car you see here is a fully restored, classic Alfa Romeo GTA- but it’s not just restored, it’s improved. Like famed Porsche specialists Singer have done with old 911s, Alfaholics have gone through every part of the old-school Alfa GTA to deliver a car that is both true to the original, and capable of serious, modern-day driving performance.
The real questions about the Alfaholics GTA-R 290, then, have nothing to do with its looks. It’s gorgeous. They have nothing to do with its heritage. It has a rich and storied racing pedigree. They don’t even have anything to do with the car’s “green” cred. This is reusing and recycling at its very best, without the massive environmental impact that producing an all-new body and powertrain have to carry. Instead, the question that matters is this: how does it drive?
Chris Harris, over at the BBC’s Top Gear, called it “driving at its very best”, and raved about the Alfaholics GTA-R 290’s handling, acceleration, and overall feel throughout this six-minute video.
So, that’s something.
Enough talk, though- check out the photo gallery for the Alfaholics GTA-R 290, below, then keep on reading to learn more about the specs and upgrades made to the old Alfa. Once you’re done, let us know what you think of the GTA-R in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
