Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale
By: Fedora Atjeh | Oktober 01, 2017
Alfa Romeo (not all) are cars that transmit passion and sportsmanship as a rule, but some creations ooze those scents that we like them more than others.
A good example of the essence of Alfa Romeo is found in the 33 Stradale, undoubtedly one of the most special models in the history of the Italian brand, a racing car approved for road racing now 50 years old.
All the details about this model we discover in this review by its history. Born in a competition environment, he was presented at the Circuit de Monza just before the celebration of the Italian Formula 1 Grand Prix in 1967.
Its tubular aluminum chassis, the extremely low and aerodynamic body made of this same material, the 8-cylinder V-engine 1,995 cc and its official figures from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.5 seconds and 260 km / h of maximum speed make of it a jewel worthy of the best museums.
Only 18 units of the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale were manufactured, so today it is a 'rare avis'. Now that the model turns 50, the Alfa Romeo Historical Museum of Arese pays homage to an exhibition in which, among other things, five of the six prototypes that give rise to the definitive model can be seen.
Carabo, Iguana, 33/2 Speciale, Cuneo and Navajo are the names that designate these prototypes, and along with them will be the 33/2 Daytona, 33/3, 33 TT12 and 33 SC12 turbo models. Without doubt, a unique opportunity to know more about a model that has set fire to the history of Alfa Romeo.
