On the Limit: Alfa Romeo Montreal


Alfa’s Montreal is one of those cars that seem too rarified, too exotic and graceful to lower itself to the rigours of a track day.

But our squeamishness is blasted out the window by this hand-made onboard of a Montreal-heavy trackday at the Adria Raceway in the Veneto, Northern Italy.

It was, after all, powered by an engine derived from that in the beautiful type 33 Stradale, and built for long distance ragging. You can see the composure these Gandini-penned beauties show on the limit, and what short shrift they give modern GTis and other minnows of the world of automotive style.

Nice sounds and snappy gearbox action, too…
