Disco V. Mentioned as having Fuel Injection?
I have an Alfa brochure from about 1969 on the new 1750 range of cars with Spica fuel injection. It states:
"The heart of the 33's performance is its Alfa Romeo-Spica fuel injection system. Inherited from the world famous "Disco Volante" series, this injection system has been highly refined through extensive motor racing over the years."
This 33 reference is to the 33 race car which is also pictured on the page. So am I to now believe that the Disco V. was the first FI Alfa? I have never heard of this before. Is this a misprint or some weird translation error? Or just some piece of info that slipped past me at some point? I have looked at my Fusi and never have I found any referrence to FI in this or the 3000cm development. Am I missing something?
1961 Giulietta Berlina
