Overview

Rally Preparation Services is excited to offer for sale this ultra-rare classic 1978 Alfa Romeo Alfasud 1.5 Ti 2 Door example.

Styled by the legendary Italian car designer Giugiario during his time at Italdesign, it was the Austrian, Rudolf Hruska who was tasked with development of the first small Alfa Romeo that became the Alfasud. Hruska (who had previously worked on the Fiat 124 and 128) took control of the development of a new car factory on the site of an old Alfa Romeo aero engine plant in southern Italy (hence the “Sud” moniker) to produce his technical masterpiece.

The choice of a boxer engine allowed a low bonnet line which was great for aero dynamics along with a low center of gravity - adding to the Alfasud’s precise control. Technically strong with all round disc brakes and rack and pinion steering coupled with McPherson struts at the front and a sophisticated rear axle complete with Watts linkage all contribute to the “fun to drive” DNA typically found at Alfa Romeo.

This particular Alfasud is from the personal collection of one of our directors and one of the very desirable 1.5 Ti (Tourismo Internazionale) models. The popular period upgrades of two twin choke Weber carburetors and driving lamps have been carried out and overall, she is in truly superb condition as you would expect from one of our own cars.

As a late 1978 model, this classic car benefits from the factory improvements introduced that year including black wheel arch extensions, revised spoiler and better interior. Ideally suited for classic rallying this Alfasud has already been fitted with Recaro seats, fire extinguisher and Sabelt full harnesses. These additions were fitted as previously the car has been driven across France to follow the Monte Carlo Historique route including many of the famous col’s such as the world famous Col de Turini with no concerns to report. If desired, the car can be returned to standard as the original seats are available and in good condition.

The car is available for inspection and is currently residing at RPS’ sister company – the SASCo storage facility.

All viewings and test drives welcomed by appointment at Rally Preparation Services.
