Intersport men who like car modification may already be familiar with Alfaholics. For those who don’t know, Alfaholics is one of the most famous modification houses from England. Alfaholics is known as a restoration workshop for classic cars from Alfa Romeo. Recently, Alfaholics exhibited their latest work, a restoration of the Alfa Romeo 1600 Junior Zagato car model. This car has undergone restoration from the outside and the inside so it really looks like a new car.
When viewed from the outside, this car that was produced by Alfa Romeo in the 70s looks really smooth, just like new. The body is painted green. The restoration carried out by Alfaholics did not change the original shape of the car body at all. All shapes and components are maintained as original, from the chassis, doors, to the vehicle lights. Alfaholics really wants to maintain the authenticity of this classic car.
Then on the legs, Alfaholics uses their homemade suspension kit which was previously designed for the Alfa Romeo GTA-R. This kit consists of a wishbone top, bolts and wheel mounts made of titanium. To support the handling of this restoration car, Alfaholics has installed an adjustable suspension. In addition, this car is also known to have coilover on the rear suspension and six caliper disc brakes.
For the interior, Alfaholics is restoring it in such a way so that the results will match the owner’s wishes. The components contained in the interior can be said to be quite complete, because it has heated seats, air conditioning, power windows, and a back support in the seat that can be adjusted according to user needs. The interior of the car is also covered with genuine Italian leather with Alcantara accents, and is complemented by a carpet made of wool. In addition, there is also a pair of bags in the trunk that can be used for traveling.
For the engine itself, Alfaholics uses a Twinspark in-line four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 2.1 liters that can produce 225 hp and is equipped with a manual transmission. To optimize the distribution of power from the engine, this car also features a dedicated rear axle for racing, coupled with a limited slip differential.
