We are delighted to offer this special Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo Evoluzione for sale. One of 500 (at the most) built in the Spring of 1987 to homologate the 75 series to Group A specification. Alfa Corse - the factory's in house competitions' arm - raced the Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo in top-flight touring car racing, its array of drivers including Nicola Larini and Gabriele Tarquini, former F1 pilots Sandro Nannini and Jacques Laffite, as well as the Indycar legend and former FIA F1 World Champion, Mario Andretti.
The Evo distinguishes itself through following details from the "normal" Alfa 75 Turbo
1.Limited series of only 500. All were built in the spring of 1987
2.Only delivered in red
3.Front-grill was not in grey, but in red

6.Wings were widened, side panels, front-spoiler and bumper all made from super-light GFK (according to Alfa the Cd-value was down from 0,38 to 0,33. The Evoluzione was the first 75'er with the small rear-spoiler, which was later used in the series version).
7.Seat design was slightly altered
8. Stiffer springs and even stiffer suspension units
9.Thicker rear-stabilizer (from 21mm up to 27,5mm)

The car on offer was sourced in Italy in 2003 and has been part of a collection here in the UK since. The car has covered 46,500 kilometers, and has been professionally maintained. This particular 75 Turbo Evo is in absolute original unmolested condition and is in superb order! A very rare opportunity.
