Well Happy My third 916 : Spider 2.0 V6 TB

Hi everyone,

I'm Damien and live in Paris...
After living spending 3 years on the wheels of my 916 I finally come here to introduce you my babes
I'm 23 and definitely crazy of the 916... Let me explain...

Ater my first car - a 94' Twingo - I turned around the idea of searching my second car and totally fell in love with the design of the Gtv!

My first 916 was a Gtv 2.0 TS Elegante Edizione I found in Germany. Black on the exterior, Teledial cup, and the brown interior from the last 916 series.
I kept this gtv only one year and 20000km after buying it because someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

I couldn't stay without a 916 so I bought a Gtv 2.0 V6 TB in Roma, my frst V6... I really enjoyed the sound !!

I offered him a new interior altough mine was in a perfect condition.

Let's get the Red Style started!!!!

Without knowing before buying this Gtv, I fell on a customized Gtv. Hybrid turbo TD04HL, reprog by Zamuner, full inox exhaust, big Nissan 350Z calipers on 320mm discs, Bilstein B6, etc...
This Gtv was amazing... But... The rear axle was fitted on rigid silentblocks, only on the inferior end of the longer arm. The Gtv lost its abality to keep this rear steering on fast curves... I was able to drift from the rear on roundabout, without handbrake just accelerating a bit...

So I crached it without playing in november of 2012. While being tired on the highway, I lost the control on a fast curve

After a lot of weeks I found a new 916... My new Spider, a V6 TB (one of the 442)... I finally never saw it because a rod broke after driving 75km from Roma (Italia again...)

......

In July 2013 I bought another Spider on a whim... A V6 TB too!!
This Spider was totally stock, dirty, a clear lack of maintenance... With only 90000km...!

When I bought it in Sardinia:

And now, after 5 months of disassemblies, repairing, changing, optimizing, here is my Spider shoot of november:

Bilstein B6, Eibach pro kit -20mm, Alessio 18" rims, Zender quad exhaust, Zender foot rest and pedals, ...... and many things changed to make it cleaner and newer ............. , and last thing to come is the engine of my Gtv, to get my 250hp back
Many new pieces for my engine, hubs, seals, clutch, oil, wires and paint!

There is some videos on my youtube channel :

Very rare, a 2.0 V6 Spider. I'm not sure why you think it has 250BHP. Standard it has 200BHP, chipped that maxes out at about 235BHP.

I loved those tan seat in your first car, in fact all the seats in you cars look in fabulous condition. Welcome by the way.

Hi Damien - welcome to AO.

Fascinating stories and cars. That crash looks pretty nasty - were you OK?

Like crazycarb I am a regular visitor to Paris - possibly my favourite city.

Member car:

916 gtv 2.0

What turbo is on her now? Would love to get my hands on a v6 turbo...the best of both worlds.

Alfas and Paris are a love of mine, in fact I'd nearly give up my alfas to live in Paris (even though I speak **** all french)

There aren't many old alfas knocking around Paris either, the last two times I was there I only saw 159's, mitos and giulietta's and a 166.
Heard the 166 before seeing it, that v6 sound is hard to miss

It's not the Tan of the usual p2 : http://images.pistonheads.com/nimg/2...lfaGTV_3-L.jpg

It's the color "camel" of the p3 : http://images.clickedit.co.uk/1404/13400175.jpg

It's a german limited edition : SS. Elegant 2001 (GTV) Yaroslav Bozhdynsky's Personal Website

I took a great pleasure look after my seats and restore them in every 916 I own...

__________________________________________________ _

The crash was insane... I still remember the slide the car made when the rear had stalled... A freaky moment. And this f***** wall when I was on doing to take the control back...

A big freak, some injuries, nothing compared to the car. I can say the gtv's body saved my life...
__________________________________________________ _

My car is still running stock ecu and engine. I'm waiting for the "bridge" to lift the Spider and then change the engine.
The engine I'll fit in the spider is the one of the Gtv. Clean, well maintened, and this preparation : mistubishi TD04HL turbo, Zamuner reprog, etc...

And obviously it will be a great pleasure to meet you in Paris...
We have many alfanatics everywhere in Paris and around!
