As we’re in the midst of motor-racing season, what better way to get out and enjoy motor sport than with this beautifully prepared Alfa Romeo GT Junior (drop nose) 105-series classic racer This is a superb opportunity to purchase a very high-specification classic race-car. The Alfa’s shell is prepared to a very high standard and has been fully seam welded for additional strength, along with a fully welded-in roll cage. A huge amount of money has been spent on race parts, and it features really lovely assembly work.

The car was built for the Alfa Trofeo and Classic Competition in which it campaigned from 2003–2008. The car changed hands in 2010, and was completely restored before it was further campaigned by its new owner in Trofeo series. The car comes with a large spares package and a mountain of documentation including invoices, spec sheets, and full set-up specs, as well as a current MotorSport NZ logbook and full COD.
