Re: Alfa 33 limited editions
I spoke to him about the car when I bought some parts off him - in theory a limited edition called a Le Mans is logical as the original Tipo 33 competed at Le Mans in the 1960s.
However, I don't think that there was a Le Mans version of the later 33. The things that were allegedly different about the 33 Le Mans were that "the switchgear was taken from the 164" - in fact this car was a late 16v which would have the later smaller buttons for fog lights etc, "it has the ECU from a P4 and has 150bhp" - we all know the main ECU for the P4 would be the same as for a standard 16v and would therefore be the standard 137bhp, so this doesn't make much sense.
All in all I think that this version sounds like it is a standard 16v with a few goodies, I can't find the version listed on my Alfa Romeo parts CD and therefore don't think it was an actual production model.
Hope that helps
