It runs on 17x7 (215/40) front 17x8 (235/40) Team Dynamics wheels . Also have the Alfa Ronal wheels 15x7 with 205/50 front and 225/50 rear.

I still think the wheels with holes really give the car an original classic look so i run them once in a while, just need new tires for back!
Very nice with the Team Dynamics wheels, the Ronals look old and out of date, sorry Saying the car kept up better than the Ronals.

Nice Velocissima! Not everyone likes all the extra body work, but I think its very period! I have had several Alfetta GTs and always wanted a Velocissima edition. The Team Dynamics with the wider tires no doubt do a better job filling out those wheel wells!

I currently have an '84 GTV6 and will be applying a Maratona kit to it, with bigger, wider wheels (Compomotive TS701's) to also help fill in those wheel wells. Along the way I also picked up a Velocissima upper hatch spoiler and will look to add that as well. 80's excess! lol

Great! Looking forward to seeing photos of your GTV6 when finished. I live in southern interior of B.C. and have not seen a GTV6 on the road in over 30 years!

Maratona photos saved from an ad., with Ronals though. Find Maratona iin red better than silver in my opinion, but never had this version here.

Looks Great! I see it has the same rear deck spoiler as the velocissima. The gold clover leaf badge on the vent cover is also the same. I recently purchased replacement covers for my car from another member of this forum after they were stolen. Will have them repainted and new badges installed soon.

Actually, there are two other variants on the rear deck spoiler: the 1st/L example below I think was mostly on the Callaway Turbo, while the 2nd/R example found its way on many of the Maratonas, more so ( I think) than the spoiler found on the Velocissima. My spoiler is the 2nd one (but that is not my GTV6, sadly).

Ohh! and how 'bout dem wheels?! I have no idea what either of these cars are sporting.

Gabor K: That is a nice take on the Maratona in red! So is the black example I displayed in my response. When I wrap up my 3.5 project ('some day'), I think that I will go with a very nice (Mercedes type?) metallic silver with solid flat black trim on mine... but there is still much, much time for me to twist and turn on that decision. ( And along with the body kit and spoilers, I also have the Quadfoglio and Maratona badging as well. I will not be implementing the hatch window louvers however.)

My very first car was a silver seriesI Scirocco... and these fastback cars look pretty dang sleek in silver IMHO.

Nice Maratona, but like many of them, it too suffers from wheels/tires being too much inset. The extra body work overwhelms the look due to insufficient offsets.

I have always preferred the metric Speedlines. 16” replicas work for me. I finally received 4 a couple of days ago and hope to have them on my 1985 GTV6 within a couple of weeks.

Where does one get a set of those? I have a set of the stock Maratona wheels, but the tires are $300 a piece.

Everyday is a school day. Learning something new all the time

Can you post a pic of the metric speedline reproductions? Do you have size (width and offset)? OEM type finish or did you go another route? I’ll bet they look great.

Once I have them on the car I intend to come back here to post pics. I’ll provide details at the same time so it’s all together in one post.
