Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale (1967 – 1969) Review

Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale (1967 – 1969) At A Glance


+Racer for the road

-Only in your dreams

Ever fancied a Le Mans racer for the road? Well, the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 ticks that box - but at upwards of £2,000,000 a pop, there are cheaper ways of making that dream happen. However, the '33 Stradale is probably the most gorgeous of them all.

Although its V8 displaced a 'mere' 2.0-litres, the lightly detuned racing engine pushed out an impressive 227bhp, giving the 700kg car an exceptionally healthy power-to-weight ratio. But the 33 Stradale is a racing car for the road. Its body was built by Franco Scaglione, the final assembly was by Autodelta and, with only 18 made, these cars take rare-and-exclusive to another level.

Tipo 33s almost never come up for sale, so coming up with a definitive value is almost impossible.
