Het eerste dat kenners zal opvallen bij het zien van deze unieke Alfa GT Junior 1300 is dat performance en looks niet 100% met elkaar matchen. Wees gerust: die GTA-look was ons project. U kunt er dus vanuit gaan dat we de Gran Turismo met de grootst mogelijke zorg tot in perfectie hebben omgebouwd. Met uitzondering van de motor, want dat is nog steeds de originele 1300. De toevoeging “Junior” blijft zodoende letterlijk van toepassing. Al is het karakter van deze prachtige Alfa klassieker groots te noemen…Lees verder
Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior
The first thing enthusiasts will notice when they see this unique Alfa GT Junior 1300 is that performance and looks aren’t 100% a match. Relax, the GTA kit was our project. So you are guaranteed that the custom-made Gran Turismo was converted with all the love and care of the world. We did nothing to the engine though, it’s still the original 1300. Meaning it remains a genuine Junior. Although the character of this beautiful Alfa classic should be called immense…
The GTA conversion was a project after a project, by the way. It all started with the discovery of this Italian gem in its native country. Even then, the Alfa was too beautiful not to buy. Once arrived in the Netherlands, we decided to give Junior some extra attention. The bodywork was already perfectly solid from the beginning. So we didn’t have to do anything with the basics. But yes, a special car requires special treatment. We just couldn’t resist going completely wild on the visual part. The lightweight Gran Turismo Alleggerita is about the most desirable Alfa Romeo in the brand’s history, so why not give this car the legendary GTA-looks?
Interior & exterior
What makes our GT(A) extra special is the choice for a dark red lacquer. Diehard racing fans may prefer the Alfa GTA Junior in fiery red, but personally we can only appreciate this distinctive touch. It still has the color of passion, love and emotion. However, the darker shade makes it more stylish, elegant, unique and therefore – in our opinion – even more desirable. The round headlights, weight-saving wheels and massive exhaust system are 100% GTA. Chrome bumpers shine through absence, as befits a classic legend. The cockpit is just as nice and basic: black leather upholstery, 2 large round instruments and a Tan steering wheel including 3 aluminum spokes determine the sporty image inside the Alfa Romeo. This clearly is a GT for the real enthusiasts out there.
Once on the way, you get to know the true nature of the Alfa GT 1300 Junior even better. The 1,290 cc engine is identical to the original version. This means that the original sound and the primal feeling are also included. Maybe not as extreme as in the GTA, but hey, how hardcore do you want a classic to be during a calm Sunday morning drive? Besides, the 1.3 liter power unit is still sporty in character, so accelerating quickly is a guarantee. Just like a quick appointment for a test drive. Because you sure won’t be the only one loving our GT(A) Junior…
