As I said on the QV thread , if I won the lottery my first trip would be to the Alfa dealer so naturally it'd be the most expensive one they did
Though those seats might get replaced

It depends what else I've got in the garage, but 150k is investment kind of money for me and therefore I would consider an Alfa 8C or an original Ghibli?

You need another £100k for an 8C these days. Back in 2009 I had the choice of a lightly used near new DB9 or 8C both at £90k and chose the Aston....Doh! One of my worst automotive decisions on the basis of values now.

For laughs it would have to be the GT8, Andy. But the 720, I love the design. And they don’t sound too bad, either. Wait and get the spider. They can’t be more than a year and the next Macca launch away from £150k.

Agree on the Spyder 720S. Looks even better than the Coupe. I would love to take that GT8 around the roads by me. They sound amazing as well.

The benefit of hindsight.

Possibly, but you currently have in your stable the car I would take with plenty of change left over.

Analogue, intoxicating, an experience to look at or be in... decent GT40 replica like a Tornado or CAV.

That’s very kind!

It is an exact copy of chassis 1067. Every switch, guage, mirror is correct and sourced from 1960’s original parts. Painted in period correct cellulose so you need to really know these cars to spot it’s not an original. Demands 100% concentration 100% of the time to drive it right and get the down changes clean with double declutching, but it makes you feel alive ;-)

You can order a new replica from Westfield. Or even cheaper, just the kit, and build it yourself. At a guess you’d be all-in for maybe just £30k.

Unfortunately they’re not Oz compliant......yet.
