I’m nominating myself here with my beautiful Alfa Romeo Brera S-V6 which has been carefully modified to make it a very good handling road car, but also one which is very capable on track.
This picture is from when the car took on the Nurburgring nordschleife.

since then the car has been driving around the Nurburgring GP circuit, Bedford autodrome, curborough ring and most recently Silverstone GP circuit.

the list of modifications is endless and is listed on the Brera Section.

Thanks for looking! I hope you like the tasteful modifications that help make this Brera a slightly more lean and nippy Alfa :)

I’m entering my own modified Brera S v6, used this October as my wedding car. View attachment 930260
More pictures and details please!
Your car looks very very low - is it driveable like that?
Congratulations on the nuptials by the way.

I'm going to nominate myself aswell?
Here he is, my Alfa Romeo GTV 2.0 TS. With some very different styling cues. For example the Kerscher Futura 17 rims, not the typical alfa choice. But that's what made me pick him, exactly one year ago, when I got my drivers license.
First car, what better than an Alfa? am I right?

I learned quite a bit on him - fitting an exhaust, making custom speaker brackets, getting the best out of the michelin tyres, sound proofing for that extra luxurious feeling etc. lots of lessons learned, which made for the best weekends ever ?

I even get to test the new toys when driving to school, what is a better way to start a day?

Thanks everyone for reading and enjoy your Alfa's, every... single... day!

No vote due to lack of entries, maybe there'll be more interest next time.
