If you’re into classic Alfa Romeos and restomods, then I think you should probably listen to what Hamburg-based sports car and classic car dealer Emilia Auto has to say. The company plans to restomod the Alfa Romeo GT coupe with the current 2.9-litre V6 engine found in the Giulia and Stelvio. Sounds exciting? Well, read on.
The renderings suggest that there’ll be some subtle yet noticeable changes in the bodywork, such as a sculpted hood in order to accommodate the aforementioned engine; new bumpers front & rear, flared wheel arches, large front fender outlets, retro 19-inch wheels, upgraded disc brakes (360 mm front, 350 mm rear), curvy rear-end, twin tailpipes housed in a carbon fibre diffuser, and of course, new lighting all around. Apparently, certain body panels will be re-made from carbon fibre. There’ll also be an upgraded suspension setup with KW coilovers.
The changes in the cabin look tasteful as well, with Recaro seats, modern gauges, and new air vents. As the renderings suggest, the dashboard inlays can be anything from wood to carbon fibre.
As for the business end of the story, the Ferrari-built 2.9L V6 twin-turbo engine pumps out over 500 metric hp and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. There’s not gonna be a manual though, as the V6 retains the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.
According to reports, the first working example is expected in the second quarter of 2022.
