MOC: Classic Alfa Romeo GTV6 (116)

18 posts in this topic

I have had a dream of an Alfa Romeo GTV6 since i was a kid and visited a motorshow with my dad were it was presented.

Some years ago i hade the time and money to buy me one of those classics. As all other things it added upp and at one point i had 3 of these in my garage. 1 mint conditioned original example, one racier for track days with a lot of mods and one in god condition for thoose warm summer every day drives.

So to summon things up, i have totally restored 2 of these great vehicles and helpt alot of other owners with service and replacement parts.

Today a new storie begins as i intend to build a perfect replica in Lego at the scale 1:10.

Anybody looking forward to follow such an build?

I, for one, do... I would be very interested to know what tires you will be using. That is most often the decisive factor when deciding on a scale...

My first thought was these:

Part 32003 Tire 68.8 x 24

Have not looked how well they match the scale yet.

Nice work with the chassis! Isn't the wheel-base a little too long though, or is it just me?

The wheelbase of the Alfa Romeo GTV6 does seem to be a little long to me too:

That's quite the exotic rear suspension you have to re-create. Good luck! :thumbup:
