// - SIX FIGURES - // #drivedisgracefully | Expected to fetch 100-130k This 1982 GTV 6 Group A built by Autodelta is authenticated in its Automobile Club D'Italia Passaporto Tecnico dated 26 July 1985 that states it was the property of Autodelta Settimo, Milanese. This car is purportedly 1 of 10 constructed and the 2nd car prepared for Autodelta. It was acquired afterwards by Mirabella Racing of Brescia about 3 years later and raced in the Targa Florio. The car was brought in to Australia in 2015 in its original left-hand drive configuration and has subsequently undergone a comprehensive mechanical overhaul, cosmetic restoration and interior refurbishment at Maranello Pursang Motors in Brunswick overseen by a seasoned and dedicated owner. The engine bay and undercarriage have been refreshed and a reconditioned gearbox fitted suitable for road and track use. All the ancillary parts have been renewed or reconditioned and muffler replaced. Period livery has been re-applied with new decals. Receipts are available for perusal.
The car is accompanied by the homologation documents and under Technical Checks and Surveys the logbook details competition in rallies from what is believed to be 1983 to 1986 including the Rally Valle Camonica; the Mille Miglia in 1986; Targa Florio in 1986; Montecampione in 1985 and the Rally Elba. An Automobile Club D'Italia Folio Complimentare states a transfer of ownership in 1990 to Giannine Alfonso.
A dossier accompanies the sale of this genuine factory car including hand written accounts of rally activity which mentions driver's Massimo Botticini and co-driver Bossini together with a collection of photographs in period. Within the dossier is a hand written history which says the car includes: original documents; original period technical passport; period documentation; that the motor did produce approx.220hp; had a straight through exhaust; a 35mm diameter torsion bar, Lockheed Brake callipers Autodelta gearbox and close ratio box. The car was described as all original in the notes. It has now been sensitively restored and set up for road and track use.
