10k: Almost A Quadrifoglio: 1982 Alfa Romeo GTV6 Callaway Twin Turbo

 Use of the Quadrifoglio (four leaf clover) on an Alfa Romeo started on racing cars in the 1920s, but
modern examples (such as 164, and Spider) use the emblem to denote a high
end version of a particular car. This next vehicle isn’t a Quadrifoglio Verde (or QV) but it does have a twin-turbo Callaway engine, so it gets a pass.  Find this 1982 Alfa Romeo GTV6 Callaway Twin Turbo here on eBay offered for $8,995 buy-it-now or make-offer, located in Baldwin, NY.

Between 1983 and 1986 Callaway Cars built approximately 30 to 35 twin-turbo V6 powered GTV6s for sale to the public. This is not one of those cars, but it does have a Callaway V6 engine swapped into the shell and it was setup for racing according to the seller.

The dusty twin-turbo V6 under the hood is a 2.5 liter boosted Alfa 12-Valve engine that was rated at 233 horsepower and 245 ft-lbs of torque when new. It may not sound like much in today’s world of 300 horsepower minivans, but those were crazy numbers when you consider that a C4 Vette from ’85 made 230 horsepower from its 5.7 liter V8. 

 This car is a project car inside and out –the only reason it isn’t a $500 car destined for the nearest 24 Hrs of LeMons track is because of the twin-turbo Callaway engine and 5-speed gearbox borrowed from a Milano.
