AlfaRomeo 33 / 3

The 1970 edition clearly demonstrated that the Madonie curves are congenial to 3 liters, which is why no higher class cars are entered this year, even if the World Makes allow for the last time the 917s and 512. Even though Ferrari owns the right car, the new 312PB, it still needs to improve its set-up and reliability. Consequently, for the umpteenth time, it deserted the Sicilian trip. Unlike Alfa Romeo which knows it has a robust, mature and winning car, the new 33/3.

L’edizione 1970 ha chiaramente dimostrato che le curve delle Madonie sono congeniali alle 3 litri, motivo per il quale quest’anno non vengono iscritte auto di classe superio- re, anche se il Mondiale Marche ammette per l’ultima volta le 917 e le 512. La Ferrari pur pos- sedendo l’auto adatta, la nuova 312PB, deve ancora migliorarne messa a punto ed affidabilità.Di conse- guenza diserta per l’ennesima volta la trasferta sici- liana. Al contrario dell’Alfa Romeo che sa di avere un’auto robusta, matura e vincente, la nuova 33/3.

VINCE VACCARELLA, IN COPPIA CON TOINE HEZEMANS, E DAVANTI Al COMPAGNI DE ADAMICH-VAN LENNER TERZA lA LOLA, LE PORSCHE SONO FUORI DAL PODIO

VACCARELLA WINS, PAIRED WITH TOINE HEZEMANS, AND IN FRONT OF COMPAGNI DE ADAMICH-VAN LENNER THIRD LOLA, THE PORSCHE ARE OFF THE PODIUM

 

The AlfaRomeo33 / 3 winner of 1971 was born from a long and progressive work that began in 1967, when Cario Chiti designed the first sport 33 with a 2-liter engine with the desire to make the Milanese manufacturer one of the protagonists in the World Championship for Brands, a direct commitment with the ambition of victories absolute that Alfa was missing since 1951.
The 1971 bodywork is distinguished by the square shape of the front and the open engine hood at the rear. The chassis has been completely revised, a monocoque with aluminum and titanium panels, with a shorter wheelbase (2240 ​​mm) than the previous year’s car. The engine is the 90 ° V-shaped S-cylinder, four valves per cylinder of 420hp, the unit used with disappointing results even in Formula 1 on the March, but which on the prototypes proves to be reliable and powerful. Allowing the Milanese company three overall victories and a series of podiums that allow the 33/3 to conquer the World Series Championship in the 3000 class.

Totem GT electric based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA

This is the new Totem GT electric based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA.

Totem, an Italian company that specializes in reviving vintage cars, is now working hard on rebuilding an Alfa Romeo Giulia GT Junior, but a Giulia with a difference. The latest work from Totem sees them converting a classic alfa to Epower for the first time. The GT Electric is based on the GT Junior, one of the most beautiful cars ever produced, however the GT Electric exterior features design inspirations from a few Giulia models from across the years.

A 50.4-kwh battery pack provides a range of 199 miles at “standard pace,” according to the company. The prototype car has a 6.6-kw onboard charger, but production cars will have a more-powerful fast-charging system, the company confirmed.

Totem said the battery pack weighs 771.6 pounds, but the carbon-fiber body will offset some of that weight. Only 10 per cent of the original chassis is retained, with the rest replaced by aluminum and carbon fibre to support over 510hp and 940Nm of power. This helps the GT Electric accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 3.4 seconds. Totem have made some subtle changes: The GT Electric has four headlights instead of the original two, the C-pillar is redesigned, and the Alfa grille badge lacks the bars of the original. Totem also redesigned the underside of the car to improve aerodynamics, creating a flat floor with rear air diffusers to generate enhanced downforce. The interior has been significantly updated as you would expect, with a digital dash display and Bluetooth infotainment system.

Alfa Romeo…for a ticket

Think Alfa Romeo and your mind’s eye will most likely conjure up a beautiful red roadster or lithesome coupe, both powered by a high-revving DOHC engine that is both powerful and visually a work of art. But buses (and trucks) were once a major part of the company’s product line.

 

Alfa Romeo 140A is an Italian bus model produced by Alfa Romeo from 1950 to 1958. The bus was produced for Azienda Trasporti Milanesi (ATM) in Milan, Italy.

Bodies

The bus used bodies from SIAI-Marchetti from 1950 to 1951 (19 units), Macchi-Baratelli from 1952 to 1953 (30 units) and Macchi and Caproni from 1952 to 1958 (78 units).

Technical characteristics

The bus was made in two sizes, 12 or 22 meters long and had 3 or 5 axles. The gas engine is 12,517 cc (12.517 L) with 140 hp at 1700 rpm or 163 hp at 2000 rpm.

The single version had 32 seats and the articulated version 46. The larger configuration can transport 150 people.

The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is a full-on performance monster with a Ferrari-sourced 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 that wrings out 505 hp, 3.6-second 0-60 mph times, and a top speed of 176 mph. It also has the equipment for track driving, including better cooling, upgraded brakes, a torque-vectoring rear differential, and wide 20-inch tires on forged alloy wheels.

The 2020 model year also brings more safety equipment. Automatic emergency braking becomes standard and a variety of active safety features are added to the options list.

ALFA ROMEO…the 6C series

The “6C” series was without doubt one of the most successful in the great history of Alfa Romeo, starting from the victorious 6C 1500 and 6C 1750 until the final evolution with the 6C 2500, the car became a predominantly “Gran Lusso” (luxury car) which was combined with the typical Alfa Romeo sports heritage.

It was a successful series that lasted nearly three decades, in all possible variants: two-seater racing cars, monumental ministerial sedans, “Gran Turismo” convertibles, colonial cars for the “Regio Esercito” (Royal Army” and sports coupes. Some were even modified for advertising vehicles and work vehicles as vans and “autoemoteche”. These were the years of the great Italian ateliers, and design was purely inspired by their infinite creativity, not yet subjected to

today’s constraints, such as the size of the vehicle, the interior roominess, safety standards, cost reduction, rationalisation of production cycles, economies of scale, etc.
All of the above, combined with first class mechanics, created these masterpieces that still achieve success in the most important elegance competitions.

t is also important to dwell on the historical context in which the

6C 2500 was developed if we consider that in the same year in which it made its appearance, in 1939, World War II broke out.
Although Italy only entered the conflict in June 1940, its sale as
a private vehicle was soon prohibited.

Thus, we are left with a model that, with a few modifications which were almost never radical, had a life-cycle of over twenty years starting from 1933, the year in which the first drawings of the 6C 2300 were designed, until 1953, in which the 6C 2500 was no longer available.

Alfa Romeo: 140 AF

Italian and English version

The 140 AF was a model of trolleybus produced by Alfa Romeo from 1949 to 1960.

This model was the most distributed Alfa Romeo trolleybus (451 units were produced), both nationally and internationally, although it was not the one produced in the highest number of copies. In Italy, it has been used in Milan, Genoa, Como, Trieste, Ancona, Bologna, Florence, Rome, Naples, Avellino, Salerno, Bari, Palermo and Catania. Abroad, Athens and Belgrade must be remembered. Some of the cars that had originally been produced for Italy were sold abroad after the Italian trolleybus transport crisis of the 1960s, which led to the dismantling of many trolleybus networks in favor of those of buses.

The last units were removed in 1983. The axles for the standard version were 3 (105 passengers), while the articulated one had 4 (160 passengers) or 5 axles (180 passengers). The length was 12 m for the former, 17.8 m for the latter and rose to over 19 meters for the AFS / 5 articulated 5-axis version.

Il 140 AF è stato un modello di filobus prodotto dall’Alfa Romeo dal 1949 al 1960.

Questo modello è stato il filobus Alfa Romeo maggiormente distribuito (ne furono prodotti 451 esemplari), sia a livello nazionale che su scala internazionale, anche se non fu quello prodotto nel più alto numero di esemplari. In Italia, è stato utilizzato a Milano, Genova, Como, Trieste, Ancona, Bologna, Firenze, Roma, Napoli, Avellino, Salerno, Bari, Palermo e Catania. Per l’estero, vanno ricordate Atene e Belgrado. Alcune delle vetture che erano state originariamente prodotte per l’Italia, vennero vendute all’estero dopo la crisi del trasporto filoviario italiano degli anni sessanta, che portò allo smantellamento di molte reti filoviarie a favore di quelle di autobus.

Gli ultimi esemplari sono stati radiati nel 1983. Gli assi per la versione standard furono 3 (105 passeggeri), mentre quella snodata era a 4 (160 passeggeri) o a 5 assi (180 passeggeri). La lunghezza era 12 m per i primi, 17,8 m per i secondi e saliva ad oltre 19 metri per la versione AFS/5 snodata a 5 assi.
