Alfa Romeo 164 Procar

Here's a glorious glimpse of what could have been...

The Procar series was posited as a support race for Formula One in 1988, but was swiftly canned. Alfa Romeo were the only manufacturer to build a prototype for the series - the car you see in the pictures is the 164 Procar, developed with Motor Racing Developments Ltd (the company behind the Brabham F1 team).

Yes, that is a 600bhp mid-mounted V10 you can see there. You can read more here (if you speak German), and click the last picture below for specs.
