    Having had the pleasure of hearing the 155 V6 TI in person.. videos do not do it justice.... simply out of this world! The other thing which stands out is the level of engineering that went into the car... mindblowing!

    Downforce. Help speed up the airflow from under the car.

    blown diffuser

    And never before in the history of car racing has soo much money been spent on making a quality racing car out of such a piece of excrement and having soo little impact on sales. Alfa Romeo makes losing money an art form.

    Love it. All from the cool era when stuff looked like a production body on the outside and didn't have more aero then a Boeing (Fokker?) factory.

    I watched it 3 times in a row when I re-posted it above The same bloke did a follow-up vid with the early 90s DTMs, but it's got a Vanessa Mae soundtrack and is mainly of cars outbraking themselves at the chicanes and crashing This one is the best

    There was a time when the engines could be had for $20k... would have gone great in a GTV6.

    Another spectacularly awesome DTM machine from a slightly different era: http://www.evo.co.uk/features/featur...r_gallery.html

    AFAIK this was unique in that it was FR layout and engine was semi-stressed.

    For sure, just quoting what was in racecarengineering when they ran a story on the car... hence why I said "supposedly"

    I'm surprised there isn't more of that in various aero dependent categories, but I guess it would probably compromise the overall package of the car too much to be worth it?

    I 'understand' that the rules required use of a 'production' engine block. Alfa had the 60 deg v6 but also had a 90 deg v8 (that it was from the Montreal in 1972 or thereabouts seemed not to matter) so they sawd off a couple of pots and went racing. Can't remember why 90>60 but anyway \csh

    Only thing they shared with production motors was bore spacing and v angle, and even then it was mix and match (bore spacing from the v6, angle from the 8). The 90 degree v gave a lower cg and more room for the intake gubbins.

    Lucky you. What did he have to say? Shouldve asked him about driving with Webber in FIA GT, that would've been interesting to hear his thoughts.

    He told Mark not to toss in the MB drive in 1999. Said it was such a huge risk to try and break into F1. He also said he was very happy that Mark achieved his dream of getting into F1 and he is still in touch by SMS and phonecalls.
    I got a 1997 GT Championship poster signed, alng with a Webber/Schneider 1998 CLK-GTR model that was already signed by Mark
    Talked about his F1 career, how the team didnt qualify for a lot of races. How in the turbo era he would shift into 6th in the wet and the rears would light up.

    He then went and blitzed the field by 2sec in today's Australian GT practice session!

    ha, I shall be referring all technical alfa questions to you in future for moderation before posting - is there anything that you don't fucking know?

    and yes, that sounds right - I remember its legality being given serious consideration at the time but the series was keen to keep a manufacturer so bent over a bit
