Alfa Romeo GTAm

Browsing across a few forums I came across this Alfa Romeo GTAm. As only 40 GTAm models were built there is every chance this is a replica but none the less, it is a special looking car. This particular car has been fitted with Racing Service Watanabe eight spoke rims that fill the wide arches to give the car an aggressive stance as well as making it look like a purpose built competition vehicle. After a bit of reading the GTAm was used for competition purposes around the mid 1960s and early 70s. The power plant was a 2.0 I4 that produced around 240 bhp, but considering the car only weighed roughly 900 kg it is easy to see it was so successful.
