Car pictures of the week

It wouldn’t take much to get us interested in an Alfa Romeo GTA Sprint, but with Alfaholics involved, the results are brilliant

The ‘resto-mod’, as some might wish to call it, has taken many forms over the last few years. Some may lament a lack of originality, but when done right the results can be startling. Alfaholics is one such company, turning tired Alfa Romeos into the cars that enthusiasts like us always wished they would be. So get ready to drink in stunning details in our latest evo ‘car pictures of the week’ gallery.

The petit red car in our gallery this week is Alfaholics’ GTA-R 290, and it started life as an Alfa GTA Sprint from the late 1960s. Although a great driver’s car of the period, modern tastes and modern performance standards have not been kind to Alfa Romeos, nor indeed many Italian cars of the period, so cue the resto-mod.

> Alfaholics GTA-R 270 review

Built with a staggering collection of bespoke and top-quality OEM parts, the wonder of the GTA-R 290 is not only its driving experience, but the execution with which it is built. Stunning attention to detail has been lavished on the GTA-R, and it’s obvious in every part of the car’s tiny footprint.

Rather than take it to some far-flung exotic location then, we took it to roads that we know well enough to really get a sense of the enormous amount of work that goes into it. The resto-mod is not specific to Alfaholics, and although there are many others out there, few compare to the sheer attention lavished on what started out as a relatively humble car.

Click through our gallery to see all the luscious details that make the Alfaholics GTA-R 290 one of our favourite resto-mods, and check in next week to see what iconic evo photoshoot will feature in the next ‘car pictures of the week’ gallery.

Gallery 2

Here we dig further back into the evo archives where we pull out some iconic images of the Ford GT slightly out of context in the European Alps, a TVR Sagaris in central Detroit, the Audi RS2 as well as one of our most iconic twin tests between the Ferrari 599 GTO and Lexus LF-A.


Gallery 3

The previous-generation Bentley Continental GT seemed to get better with age, a notion mirrored by the Jag E-type when in modern ‘lightweight’ form. Both of these British icons, as well as the Aston Martin Vantage GT12 feature in gallery three.


Gallery 4

Fans might have cried fowl when Ferrari decided to turbocharge the Ferrari 488, but it’s not like Ferrari don’t have a history with turbocharged V8 engines. Here the 488 co-stars alongside the stunning F40, while elsewhere in this gallery we take a Porsche Cayman GTS to Japan for a stunning mountain blast.


Gallery 5

Italian twelve-cylinder supercars seem to be the main agenda in the fourth evo car pictures of the week gallery, here featuring four V12 Lambos and the stunning 599 SA Aperta limited edition alongside its 550 Barchetta predecessor.


Gallery 6

GT3s and GT-Rs are just the beginning for gallery number six, with the Noble M600Aston Martin One-77 and a couple of McLaren flagships filling out our most amazing gallery yet.

A gallery of new and old, here the McLaren 720S cemented its place as a truly great supercar alongside a daring night shoot with an Audi R8 LMX, pitch a Nissan GT-R and Audi Quattro against each other on Welsh mountain roads and drive the original 'Hakosuka' GT-R.
