Alfasud 1976 Trofeo Race Car

In excellent condition the car has been built to incorporate the Autodelta Trofeo factory race kit which includes flared guards, large front and rear spoilers, vented inboard disc brakes with larger calipers, poly bushes all-round, Koni shock absorbers and genuine Speedline wheels 13 inch by 8 inch wide with Dunlop racing tyres. It also runs a front splitter below the spoiler.

The engine is unique, combining a 1700 crankshaft with a 1500 block to give 1600 CC capacity. It has forged JE high compression pistons, tri-metal bearings, polished and ported head with high lift Trofeo camshaft and Cosworth value springs. It has a fuel swirl pot and electric fuel pumps in the boot area together with a lightweight battery.

The engine is fuel injected with a Motec M4 control system and new downdraught inlet manifolds. It has a dry sump oil system with a large purpose-built aluminum catch tank. The flywheel is special purpose machined from solid billet steel and runs a four spot button ceramic racing clutch. It has a custom made four into one tuned length exhaust system with side pipe.

The gearbox is a close ratio 1200 version and there is a spare refurbished 1200 gearbox fitted with a new Quaife limited slip diff (new and unused) for an additional cost.

The front brakes also include outboard 33 calipers and this in addition to the Trofeo inboard brakes. It has an adjustable brake bias. The car also has a Rallymaster race seat and Sabelt racing four-point seatbelt together with a Sparco Steering Wheel. It has an aluminum Bond roll cage and fire extinguisher together with a quick flick ignition isolation switch and starter button.

The car has the extra rear sway bar and bracing to the front struts. It has a special purpose made lowered springs and runs on Dunlop SP Sports racing 220x600x13 slick tyres. The paint is in excellent condition with a few minor bits of panel damage to the flares and bonnet. The signage is a replica of the DTM Alfa Corse 155 racecars that ran in the German Touring Car series.

An excellent and unique piece of Alfa Romeo racing history at a fraction of the cost invested by the owner. $20,000 Australian

Interesting; I ran a 1700 block with a 1500 crank to get 1600cc :)

I wonder if either way has advantages???

Hi Pete,
Yes I think if you use the 1700 block with the 1500 crank it will rev a little more as by using the 1700 crank and 1500 block it gets more torque from a longer stroke. I think that is the theory!! The racing classes here are normally up to 1600cc so that is why I increased the capacity. My mechanics had also done this modification on an open wheel Formula two race car and learnt a lot. EG especially about clearances with the 1500 block which requires some minor modifications.
Cheers
David
