Okay... I test drove a duetto at one point, and while it was peppy, it certainly wasn't like this:


What do you guys think? Supercharged? Turbo? I can't hear anything that would tip me off...

An Alfa does 200

I watched the video, surely that’s proof.
A Spider doin’ 1-35, it can’t be a spoof.
The film shot in Ohio, on a public street straight.
Brian - Believe David now. Please tell him he’s great.

But wait, is that a Duetto, or a 1990 Spider?
Papajam can tell us, he’s a BB insider.
Then Dave will write back - his truth to report
And Dean can respond with a brief, rude retort.

The speedometer shows two hundred, no more
In miles per hour that’s only one twenty-four.
There’s decimals to include, of that we can all argue
Until bedtime for some, or our faces turn blue.

To be continued…..

(Gotta get my post count up):rolleyes:

Yours,
In verse

Your honor, the witness already made it clear they were a munchkin! Motion for trial.

judging by the sound of the wastgate dump (clearest on the shift from first to second) this car is turbocharged

Dear 200kph(?) Duetto,

You are very brave as the aerodynamics of that car cause it to become very light at those speeds and they tend to lose touch with the ground.

Very Kool!!:)

Had a 2L Alfetta Sports Sedan turboed in 1982--but primitive compared to what can be done today.

Nevertheless in its time it was a quick car.
