1989 Alfa Romeo Alfasud Sprint / Sprint Veloce, Green Cloverleaf 1.7 from UK and Ireland
The Italian Girl... loves to rev..
1 clutch soon after I purchased the car and 1 clutch after 50,000 miles of serious fun.
1 slave cylinder.
Gear linkage when I let my girlfriend drive.
Rear side windows seized shut.
Door mechanisms needed attention.
Key ignition stopped turning the starter, so a button was fitted which turned out to be a hit.
Absolutely fantastic, it was everything I had dreamt it to be... a very nice big sister to the Alfasud. I can truly say that I have had the chance to own my dream car.
It is a shame that it was not followed up by an evolution version or something. I really do hope, that Alfa Romeo bring out an updated versions of this true masterpiece, because as great as the car is, it is realistic to say that it could have been made better, IE. better metals, bigger engine, room to allow it to be pimped (although the zender body-kit was sexy) etc...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
