1991 Alfa Romeo 33 16V (Series II)
This 1991 Alfa Romeo 33 16V is an Australian-delivered rare classic Alfa which has won several concours awards. It is powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.7-litre four-cylinder boxer engine which outputs 111kW (150hp) to the front wheels. The transmission in this example is a five-speed manual. The odometer currently shows 196,052km.
The Alfa Romeo 33 was unveiled in 1983 as a direct replacement for the Alfasud. As Alfa Romeo’s premier small passenger car the 33 was practical and economical, but petrolheads gravitated towards later versions with larger engines like the 33 16V. Not only did the 16V feature a sonorous boxer engine note which was joyous to rev-out, it also handled with nimble character and was quicker than many period sports cars. The 33 received multiple facelifts throughout its 11 year life, with this example being one of the desirable later models. This means it’s fitted with a revised interior, fuel injection, and new exterior design to keep it in-line with the Alfa ‘look’. Today the Alfa 33 is a lesser-known classic Alfa Romeo which offers a fun driving experience and retro looks.
Painted in classic Rosso Corsa paintwork on the outside, this 33 16V features a black-upholstered interior. Points of this car have been modified with performance in mind, such as the Autodelta ECU chip, Koni Sport shock absorbers, lowered suspension, 2.5-inch exhaust system with ANSA tip, and K&N air filter. Inside, the car features a Momo Daytona 4 steering wheel, Momo aluminium pedals, and an engine start button. The car rides on a set of aftermarket 17-inch Momo Corse alloy wheels which come wrapped in Kumho Ecsta Supra tyres.
Built in Italy in January 1990, this Alfa 33 was delivered new in 1991 through Straightway Motors in Victoria. The seller of the vehicle suggests it’s a four-owner car since new. The seller came to acquire the vehicle sometime before 2014, where it then went into storage. A previous owner spent considerable time and effort restoring this car, including a respray. It has been maintained by Alfa specialist Mauceri Motors in recent years. The seller notes the cambelt was replaced at 193,000km, and notes no known mechanical faults.
Considering the respray to rejuvenate the Alfa Rosso paintwork, this 33’s exterior condition is very well maintained. The red paintwork glistens beautifully in the light without obvious imperfections, while the plastics of bumpers and lights all appear without scuffing. This car has been kept in storage, hence its clean presentation. The Momo Corse wheels all show without curb rash and the Kumho tyres retain a great amount of tread.
Inside the cabin this 33 presents similarly clean. The black upholstery appears without major wear and tear and the seats have retained their shape well. The gauge cluster, dashboard, door trims, and carpeting all display without scratching or scuffing which is remarkable given the car’s age and mileage. A JVC head unit sits within the dash for all audio controls.
All accompanying books and documentation will be supplied with this car.
