When restoring a car to the highest level, authenticity is a top priority. The last thing you want on your perfect representation of the past is a component that doesn’t belong. Who better to restore and certify your classic than the manufacturer that built it? Alfa Romeo is launching two new Classiche services at Auto e Moto d’Epoca in Italy.

Demonstrated by an immaculate 1955 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint, a brand new in-house restoration service undertook a comprehensive overhaul of the historic vehicle owned by Italian rock singer Piero Pelù, who earlier this year took part in the Mille Miglia with this blue beauty.
Alfa Romeo has access to archived drawings and a catalogue of official parts to ensure authenticity and historical accuracy. Cars that go through the Alfa Classiche services receive a certificate of authenticity that will certainly reassure future owners of the cars provenance.
Alfa Romeo is also launching an ‘Instant Classic’ service that certifies more modern collectable models from the Italian brand, with rare vehicles such as the 1 of 108 Stelvio and Giulia Quadrifoglio NRING special editions eligible. The NRING editions were launched to celebrate Alfa Romeo’s record for fastest saloon and SUV lap times of the infamous Nürburgring.
Parent brand FCA Heritage are also bringing a trio of historic models to Auto e Moto d'Epoca, which features 5000 classic cars for sale and more than 1600 exhibitors. These four-wheeled icons include an impressive 1908 Fiat S 61 Corsa, a 1988 Lancia Delta HF Integrale in Safari guise, and a 1988 Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo Evoluzione IMSA racer. These ‘ambassadors of excellence’ are sure to draw a big crowd.
If you want to get your hands on your own FCA star car, a handsome 1967 Fiat 124 Sport Spider and 1982 Pininfarina Spidereuropa will be put up for sale as part of the “Reloaded by Creators” programme. Both cars have been restored to ‘as-new’ condition by FCA.
