Alfasud Sprint 6C

Imagine if Alfa Romeo had joined in with the insane arms race of Group B rallying - what kind of madness could they have concocted to take the fight to the 6R4, RS200 et al? Well, these photos are a clue.
The Alfasud Sprint 6C never got further than being a great idea, which is a shame for all of us. However, one road car was knocked together, and that's what we have here - a homologation special for a race car that never was. The engine and drivetrain you see mid-mounted were lifted wholesale from the GTV6; a 2.5-litre V6 and transaxle were shoehorned in by in-house tuners Autodelta, with the silhouette muscled-up accordingly. Sadly, as with so many rally projects, the series was cancelled before development of the car finished, so this is far as things got. How different it all could have been...
