1986 Alfa Romeo 33 QV 1.5 from Australia and New Zealand


Loads of class and personality in a small-car package.


Cam shafts required repair on purchasing the car, very costly.

A small amount of rust has developed on exterior below rear hatch.

General Comments:

The car accelerates at a reasonable pace and cruises nicely at open road speed with excellent handling.

Exotic styling and tasteful upholstery.

On the downside it uses more gas than a typical 1.5 car, averaging 13L/100km urban driving, and 10L / 100km open road.

There are rattles coming from the back, possibly squeaky suspension.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1986 Alfa Romeo 33 Ti Quadrifoglio 1.5 twin carb from Australia and New Zealand


Bent rear axle after hitting a kerb.

Air conditioning failed.

Broken front headlight.

Blown motor due to lack of oil.

Dash illumination failed.

Steering colum became loose.

Dash rattles.

General Comments:

Probably one of my favourite little cars because it goes so well and looks so nice.

The exhaust note is beautiful, I love those pops when bringing the revs down. Because I forgot to put oil in I blew my first engine. Now I am in the process of gettting a new one organised and put into it, a nice car for someone 18-20 something...
