I want this

YouTube - Callaway Alfa Romeo GTV 6 Twin Turbo

What a perfect GTV and it's got the best wheel and colour combo.

Never knew this car existed! Some resoration though. I'd say the owner had a fair few dollars behind him to invest in it. Cool story behind it's creation.

I was also impressed by the sunny weather... This winter is too long.

I'm not sure about shanes one but his is just as clean if not better than the Callaway one. They did them really as a publicity stunt.

Did he give up after that and start making stupid stuff for chaps who like to ruin a good walk?

Beautiful car though.

Mines a 'Chaparral' version, bit more pimp and less poke than the Callaways. Although the reliability of the Callaways wasn't meant to be great..

I don't think they would be that reliable to be honest 80's turbo tech was never really to be honest. What I really like about the one above is the colour and wheel combo just looks epic.

Agreed, it does look great. Seen a yellow one before and it looked stunning. Red ones are overrated
