Replica 15" "Turbina" by Group 4 Wheels

Hi All,

Just to let everyone know that we have sold out of our 7 x 15" Turbina for the Montreal/105 Bertone GTV (pending payment for the last set). We will be looking to produce another batch at some point early next year should there be demand...so get in contact and register your interest!

Regards

Jonathan

Dear Jonathan:
Please let me know when you plan to put the next batch in production.
I missed out on the last one because my restoration has been delayed.
Best,

Hi All,

A new batch (60) of our 15" Turbinas are soon to be cast and will be available shortly. I'll keep you updated and let you know when I get a date.


Regards

Jonathan

I agree that the Montreal would be a knock-out with GTAm style wheels: I once saw a nice photoshop image of this and have since thought that these were the wheels that the Montreal should have come with.

If anyone decides to make a GTAm replica that fits the Montreal, I would definitely be interested.

My understanding, though, is that there are technical challenges to this since the shape/offset of the GTAm wheel cannot be accomodated within the Montreal wheel arches.

Come on Jonathan!
You can do a run of the GTAM wheels for us guy's with Montreal's!!! Please!!! How's that?
If someone has a CAD file of the surface of an existing GTAM wheel, or has a wheel, it can be scanned and modified with the correct offsets without too much problem. The trouble is I don't have a GTAM wheel or I would get it done. Anyone with a GTAM wheel who will let us get it scanned?

We need to get some numbers behind us here folks. How many of you Montreal owners would like a set of GTAM style wheels for their cars? You know that if the wheels get made, there a whole lot of other Alfa Romeo models that could use them too. Right?
Am I helping to make the business case for you here Jonathan of group4wheels?

Thank you Con Gusto for the for the photo. I thought that was what was being discussed, but wanted to be sure. I still like the Turbina's in the 15" version.

I for one would love a set of the wheels, especially if they look as good as the doctored image! I believe in fact they would look better in real life. If you do not remember, the Type 33 ran wheels like this. As the Montreal has a engine derived from the Type 33 Sports Car, I think it inly right, it should have wheels that relate. ****, they look good!!!

...just to finish off here, I believe with the added width, they would sit further outboard, and that would give the car a better stance. Closer Wheel to sheet metal offset.

I'll do a little research and let you know what I find out. It's all about creating the right look...and with this wheel you need a lot more dish/offset.

By the way a new batch of 15" Turbinas has just come off the production line.

Jonathan
