This Original ’65 Autodelta-Built Factory Works Alfa Racer Could Be Yours

The brainchild of former Ferrari and Alfa engineers, Autodelta was Alfa Romeo’s tuning and race division, which became an official department of the manufacturer in 1963. The Italian marque was previously a dominant force in motorsport competition throughout the 1950s and looked to Autodelta for a return to form. And the race shop didn’t disappoint, routinely unleashing hopped-up, high-performance versions of existing Alfa models, including the GTA.

First debuting in 1965, the GTA was a race version of the GT, with the “A” denoting “Alleggerita” (Italian for “lightened”). Weighing just 1,630lbs, the A-spec featured a slew of upgrades, including magnesium wheels, a spartan race cockpit, and aluminum body panels replacing the standard GT’s steel items, amongst several other tweaks. Power came from a 1.6L twin-spark engine that put down up to 217hp in race-trim, though normally made closer to 113hp. In total, 500 examples were produced for homologating purposes, making examples today incredibly rare. This particular first-year specimen was originally sold to a Maltese hill climber before trading hands several times and then receiving a restoration returning it to its pre-1966 factory spec. Today, this 1965 Alfa Romeo 1600 GTA Autodelta is available through England’s Duncan Hamilton ROFGO, where it can be yours for $395,000.
