We can only pass so much judgement on a car having only experience through video, but if Chris Harris’ glee is any indication as to how this car performs, we’d reckon it’s one hell of a ride. With a total weight of less than 2,000 pounds and an Alfa Romeo 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engine that screams to a 7,200 rpm redline and makes 240-horsepower at the crank, the Alfaholics GTA-R 290 is a nimble track star that’s both competent and exhilarating.
Some of the goodies include: speed sensitive, adjustable load electric power steering; 7×15” GTA Superleggera alloy wheels wrapped in Yokohama Neova AD08R 195/55 R15 tires, Superleggera billet aluminium 6-pot front brake kit with 300mm vented discs and 2-pot rear brake kit with 267mm discs, carbonfibre doors, bonnet, and boot; and much, much more.
All of the performance and top-of-the-line comes at a price, about a quarter-million dollars actually. Watch Chris Harris hoon around in the GTA-R 290 for yourself, then let us know what you think of the car in the comment section below.
