Don't like the bodykit especially rear bumper and exhausts eek and how they managed to get 60bhp extra from the busso engine that would be interesting to know.

Never heard of these. The body kit spoils it for me, a bit too much. Will be interesting to see what happens to it.

That photo of the conrero challenge logo on the side looks a right bodge ... don't want to put anyone's motor down as they only have to look at the state of mine but I bet in the flesh that reveals some ill fitting body kit etc...

Hes asking a silly price.....yes can even be bothered to clean it before taking his out of focus snaps!! The close ups of the paint point to a car that needs a lots of work....not a car in concours condition which might help justify the stratospheric price a little!!

To be fair, it is described as a track day car rather than something to show.
You could buy a Cup, though, for £12k and spend £10k on a supercharger and uprated suspension etc. from Autodelta and get something more desirable.

There was an Autodelta one on Autotrader for ages, in at around £16k, and that looked pretty good.

So can anyone fit a shonky bodykit and then declare their car a limited edition?

Those exhaust exits look a bit of a mess.

Also "Conrero and Alfa Romeo built a special 916GTV in order to win the Alfa Romeo GTV CUP "

It seems unlikely that Alfa would make the effort to build a special edition to win a one model racing series which only their cars are in, so they will definitely win anyway.

I strongly suspect that Alfa had 0% to do with this 'special edition'. It's just a (little known as far as I can tell) bodykit manufacturer trying it on.

It's a bit of an esoteric "special edition". Feels a bit like me advertising our 159 SW as "the only Ti SW in the world with a boot liner made out of German Shepherd fur". It would be true, it is an extremely rare special edition, but that doesn't warrant a silyl price. And yes, that rear bumper is gopping. As are the sides.

Still wanna know how they claim they got 60bhp extra from 3.0. Exhaust 5-10bhp uprated cams probably around 20bhp unless its had internal work pistons conrods etc i can only see about 30bhp
