Realistic dream cars or who's the Alfa male?


#102

Yes!!!


#103


#104

It drives just how you expect a 20 year old Alfa to drive
Some electrical stuff works. Always a bonus. Nothing fell off or set on fire on the way home.

The Twinspark is a solid engine. I had a 164 TS for years and it never needed any mechanical repairs. (unlike all of the other Alphas i had back then :unamused:)

I always liked this model with the V6 Cloverleaf of course.


#107

Prefer this.

Especially with the 1.75TBi engine.


#108

I’d settle for either right now!


#109

I had a 2.0 TS GTV of the same era, would have on again in a heartbeat. Great engine, and better steering/drive feel than the S2000 and Z4 that followed. Clever rear suspension stopped it feeling like a front wheeler.
Only big bills were the ‘special’ rear suspension arms and bushes.


#110

you are clearly wrong and deluded the S2000 was way better.


#111

Better in some ways, straight line speed yes, but my experience was the steering felt rigid and didn’t give feedback in the same way the Alfa did.


#112

wrong


#113

S2000 is so meh. Soulless pos.

Love the Alfa. Brilliant for the few pennies it cost us.


#114

Total shite…S2000 brilliant and unique (and nice ones rising in value and I’ve owned two in the past)
Alfa of the era…seriously ??


#115

Meh.


#116

Made it to Wales. All good so far.


#117

Is the exhaust still attached?


#118

Looking at that, I can’t help wondering if the design team made a start, got bored halfway and decided to just duplicate the half they’d already done before heading down the pub.


#119

The design was influenced by the Chevrolet Corsair as was BMW, NSU and others.
