Great sounding Italian 12 cylinder F1 car. The Alfa V-12 is much more distinctive and rare than a Cosworth DFV powered car and because it is so unique the fans and organizers love to have it run. Giacomelli won Grand Prix points with this car with a fifth place at the Argentina GP in 1980. Eligible in HGP in US and TGP in Europe. Sister car sat on the pole and led most of the US-GP at Watkins Glen. Engine is freshly rebuilt by Bob Slade Engines and car is fully race prepped and sorted in excellent condition with spares (see below).
