Remember seeing this car in one of the boy racer type mags quite recently (looking through it in WHSmiths,honestly!) it was in the readers rides section, deffinately couldn't mistake those stripes and wheels.
Yeah, I saw it about a 6 months ago. It does have a lot of mods. I seem to remember the engine being completely rebuilt by some racing specialists and a lot of money being spent on it.
Could be wrong about this, but it is the same car I saw.
I talked to they guy who built this about 1.5 years ago, from Poole, Borunmouth way. He was well up in a alfa dealership and all the parts came at cost price from italy. would have cost about 25 k to build he reckoned.
He told me that he had sold it to a guy in Spain. Maybe it came back
