Today Callaway Cars is known by Corvette fans around the world for its high-performance variations of the famous American sportscar, but before company founder Reeves Callaway started tinkering with Corvettes, he applied his know-how to an unlikely candidate: the Alfa Romeo GTV6.
After Callaway made turbocharger kits for high-end cars like BMW, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo approached the tuning company in the early 1980s and commissioned a twin-turbocharged version of the 2.5-liter V6-powered GTV6. Just 36 examples of the Callaway Alfa Romeo GTV6 were thought to be built, each featuring upgraded suspension, brakes, wheels and the twin-turbo V6 engine – producing around 345 horsepower after receiving double dose of boost.
Bring A Trailer currently has one of these rare Callaway Alfa Romeo GTV6 coupes for sale, however the example is made extra special due to the fact that it was actually the prototype model, making it the first one built. It is fully documented and underwent a tasteful restoration in 2010, which saw the addition of a Zender body kit and Gotti 17-inch wheels, both of which we’re rather fond of.
At $33,000, we’d say this rare piece of Alfa Romeo and Callaway history is actually a bargain. Click here to view the Bring A Trailer listing and drop the seller a line about the car, or here if you want to view more photos.
