Alfa Romeo 33 1.9 16v




Very successful and recognisable car with many overall and class wins, built and maintained by well known Alfa Romeo specialists BLS Automotive. Great fun and an experience to drive with responsive handling, light weight (760kg) and fantastic noise from the flat 4 Boxer engine! Large capacity all steel race engine and straight cut transmission with LSD – would cost over £20,000 alone to build from scratch. Only ever driven by myself since being built in 1998 and never crashed. Spares available and included in the sale – including 2 x very lightly scrubbed Yokohama slicks. History, set-up data and advice all available.  Ready to race and suitable for many series including the UK Alfa Romeo Championship, Northern Sports and Saloons, CTCRC Thunder Saloons, CNC Heads and European Alfa Romeo championships.
