If you’re looking for a rad homologation special to add to your collection, then this fender-flared Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo Evoluzione would like to have a word with you.
The Alfa Romeo 75 -or Milano, depending on which side of the Atlantic you are- was the last mass-produced rear-driven model the company made before giving us the Giulia. What you see in the pictures is the rarest version of the 75 family, the Turbo Evoluzione, which was a limited run.
More specifically, this is #468 out of the 500 Turbo Evoluziones ever made, currently offered in an auction by Bring A Trailer. The car was imported into the US from Italy back in 2013 and is currently showing 116,000km (around 72k miles) on the odometer.
The most obvious visual changes of the Turbo Evoluzione is, of course, the fiberglass body kit, which includes new fenders, bumpers, and side sills, along with matching red 15-inch alloy wheels and that wonderfully ‘80s black decals.
Power is provided by a turbocharged 1.8-liter engine that, on paper, puts out 155hp, the same as the regular 75 1.8 Turbo. However, the engine is believed to make closer to 170hp as it had unique valve timing, a dual fuel pump, and a relocated air filter, not to mention the slightly smaller bore of the engine.
These limited edition Alfas came even with a different chassis code than the regular 75s and many of them were converted to race cars, so to find one in this condition in the U.S. is like finding a needle in a haystack.
