It really was a race car...

In road car clothes. Look under that rear window and down those 8 open fuel injection throats! I've heard one and I can’t explain the sound. It was the 2 liter Tipo 33 race car, minimally civilized to be legal by the more liberal standards of Italy in the... 

This is a car of dreams!!

I like that it is not your average Porsche or Ferrari. I wouldn’t mind owning the current Giulia Quad either!

Yep 👍 [nt]

Don't forget that it weighed about 700 Kg or 1540 lbs or thereabouts.

Power to weight ratio...

Those curves!

 By: lm6 : July 29th, 2020-21:42
Those lines! What a design! In my opinion one of the most beautiful cars ever made!

One of the top Alfa for sure

Up there with the TZ Tubolare and some others Credit Girardo ...  

Speaking of which - a treat for you...

The motor of the later Alfa Romeo Montreal...

 By: JLCman : July 30th, 2020-09:07
...was based on the Alfa 33 V8. Nearly the same sound at a much lower (but still expensive) price level ;-)

Not fair... car porn with morning coffee...

beg your pardon?

 By: penfriend : July 31st, 2020-02:45
have you ever driven one? best car for winding roads and track purpose. I can do a regular 180 degree track curve in its inner side at 70 km/h (probably more but I am too weak for the forces on the steering wheel) without drifting to the outside. thus ove...

- movement wheels this time! from Villeret (where else)

Yes, I have driven one ....

And enjoyed it,especially the engine noises. Tyre choice is very important as the carbon chassis is incredibly stiff. Great photo !

you are right, the whole setup is important

 By: penfriend : July 31st, 2020-05:21
the white 4C is a total lightweight with a race setup weighing 850 kg (without me); my black spider weighs nearly 200kg more and is not that agile (also due to suspensions etc). but for both the handling is fantastic go-kart like. 10 years ago I achieved ... 

Definitely a future classic ...

Weight is definitely the enemy, that’s why I enjoy this one so much... ... I'm envious... [nt]
