A couple of pics of some of my Alfa Romeos and Land Rovers

Just in case anyone is interested:

Alfa 75 V6 Cloverleaf - one of the last imported to UK and restored before I bought it by Alex Jupe



Alfa 155 Q4 - Lancia Integrale running gear and engine in an Alfa Romeo. Clarkson quite liked these. Mine was the BTCC 1994 runaround and parade lap car for second driver Simoni



GTV Cup number 142 in need of restoration. Next years project, but I have said that now for 2 years.



Summer car, phase 1 1997 Spider



My Defender 110 300Tdi, converted from a van to a CSW but needing a bit of love at the minute and some seats in the back

Winter daily drive at the minute, my P38. Up for sale when the RRS is on the road



Wife's D3 and family work horse. 182k miles and doing well



My fair weather toy. 2000 Triumph T955i Speed Triple

The 155 Q4 is quite interesting to drive.

I have had 155s in all flavours and had a particular passion for the 2.5 V6 of which I have had 3. Bought the first 2 years old somewhere around 1995 and absolutely loved it.

I think I prefer the V6 to the Q4 to be honest. The 4 wheel drive system changes the weight and balance of the car. The V6 is like a torquey little gokart and the Q4 feels ponderous in comparison although it is no slouch. It is better suited to smooth sweeping A roads whilst the V6 is a bit country lane point and squirt.

I never really got on with the 155 twinnies, they seemed flat engine wise and lacking in grunt. Having said that, my Spider is a 2.0 twinnie, and the performance is good. It is an absolute hoot to drive in the sunshine with the roof down.

But... but... for creating a smile, a 3.0 24v V6 GTV is the absolute best by far. I have owned 3 in the past, and regret selling the last one I had which was beautiful. The GTV Cup needs doing as they are such a good car to drive. The engine can be as lazy as you like or as frenetic as you need, and handling wise, it has to be one of the best FWD chassis' ever made!
