1990 Alfa Romeo 33 Imola Edition

Do you ever see a car advertised somewhere and think "I wonder how they they got that one here!" Well, today is such the case with this 1990 Alfa Romeo 33. Still seven months shy of the 25 year importation ban to the United States, here is a quite good condition and rare to see Alfa 33 with some discrete modifications; but to me, the real story is how it would have ended up here at all. There must be a good story behind it, because let's be honest - if you're going to go through the difficulty of importing a younger car to get past the government ban, I'm guessing for most people the 33 wouldn't be the first choice of car. Yet here it is, with relatively low miles in seemingly great shape - but a somewhat unrealistic price:

Year: 1990
Model: 33 Imola Edition
Engine: 1.7 liter flat-4
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 55,000 mi
Price: $18,995

This is a rare 1990 Alfa Romeo 33 Imola Edition. It is a European car that was brought to the US from Holland. It has a clear Florida title. I am listing this car for a friend who has owned it for a few years. He bought it from the Dutch man who brought the car to the US. The car is located in Palm Beach County, Florida. If you are seriously interested in the car and would like to discuss, inspect and test drive this awesome Alfa, arrangements will need to be made. The owner will then meet you in Florida so you can inspect the car. The owner has many Alfa Romeos in his collection of cars and is fastidious about maintaining all of them, this 33 is no exception.
The car is a rust free example, rare for any Alfa Romeo and especially for Alfasud / 33 models. The car has 87958 Kms (about 54700 miles). It is the original color Black Metallic #632. It was recently painted below the pin stripe as there were some small scratches in this area. The hood has some water marks on the paint. The spoiler was also stripped bare and repainted, but it has some unusual marks in the paint. The interior is black with black suede inserts on the seating surfaces. The headliner and all interior appointments are in excellent condition. The owner says that all the switches and functions work. The car has power front windows and power door locks. Rear window wiper. It has a Rockford Fosgate Stereo with Pioneer Head. The interior is such a nice and clean design and its condition is excellent. Surprisingly roomy for the size of this vehicle. It has rear spoiler. The car has its original Euro spec Carello head lights and left fog light has a crack.
The motor runs extremely well and is smooth and powerful. It has a performance chip that was installed by the previous owner and this 1.7 Boxer engine puts out about 120 hp. It is nimble indeed. It has a K&N sport air filter and Remus tailpipe. There is an OMP front strut brace. The transmission has typical Alfa grinding in third gear. Another complete transmission was recently sourced from Europe to be used to correct these issues and this is included with the car.
The strong suit of the Alfa 33 is its handling with its low center of gravity. This has been enhanced with the car being lowered and fitted with performance springs and Koni shocks at all four corners. Recently added are four brand new Serpent Auto Sport Rims with Yokohama S Drive 195/45R15 Tires at a cost of over 1500 dollars. It drives and corners and stops beautifully.
This Alfa Romeo 33 has such a beautiful and clean design with cues from both the Milano and 164 that are enhanced by its compact size. Add to that its rarity in this country and you have a very unique Alfa Romeo. If you would like more specific photos, please let me know and we can get them out to you. Thank you for looking.

While the combination of updated alloys and lowered ride height do give the 33 a more purposeful look that in some ways reminds me of the great days of the 155 Touring Cars, ultimately I think the updated wheels look a bit out of place. Obviously, that's a fairly easy fix if you want something more original and there are always plenty of aftermarket wheels to choose from so that wouldn't likely stop my purchase. Condition overall looks to be very good and original, and were you interested in collection such a model this would probably make a fairly good specimen. However, I just can't get over the sticker shock of a nearly $19,000 asking price - impressive condition and rarity to me just don't make this the odd Italian hatchback I'd choose to fret over. For me, the Lancia Delta Integrale makes much more sense as an object of desire - but as with many of the cars we look at, it sure is nice to just see something a little different even if it's not what you'd buy!

1990 Ferrari F40

I'm guessing everyone who has seen the Ferrari F40 in person (and many that haven't) have their own personal F40 story; so, here's mine. When I was a younger lad, our local luxury dealership struck a deal with a patron to purchase two Ferrari F40s. If it sounds outrageous, it was even more outrageous how much the contract was for - at the time, several million dollars. You may remember that Ferrari lost their proverbial shirt on the 288 GTO; speculators bought up the limited production run, turned around and sold many of them at an outrageous profit - in some cases, up to 10 times the original purchase price. Determined not to have that happen again, Ferrari priced the F40 at a then outrageous $500,000 give or take, but many dealers demanded premiums up to a few million dollars. Presuming that - like the stock market - the supercar market would continue to rise to the heavens, many speculators signed up. It was a sure bet, afterall! Then the crash of 1989 occurred, and shortly thereafter the supercar market tanked. It killed many of the late 1980s and early 1990s cars entirely, and some supercar makers folded up entirely. That didn't happen to Ferrari, obviously, though it sure helped that Fiat held the checkbook at the time. In any event, the market on these cars came way back to reality, and this particular speculator - who had agreed to pay millions for the delivery of the second F40 - suddenly found said car to be worth only a fraction of his outstanding contract. He refused delivery, the dealership sued - and won. They retained the car and several million dollars, which they utilized to build a new addition to the dealership for some crazy upstart from Japan called "Lexus" - but who would be crazy enough to pay a premium for re-badged Toyotas?

Anyway, my part in the story. My father had a friend at said dealership who called him up to come see this F40. If they're not exactly commonplace now, they certainly weren't in 1989, either, yet here I was, confronted with one and being told I could sit in it. Of course, I had studied the F40 extensively, and knew the car like the back of my hand. In person, it was even more impressive than the magazines had related; it was like confronting a hurricane, tornado and tidal wave of force all wrapped in one pretty red package. The slats and vents reminded me of the 250 GTO, and like that car it was a thinly veiled race car that you could put number plates on. Glue leaked out of seams, it smelled like burnt plastic inside, the finish was horrible in places - it felt sort of cheap compared to the immaculately finished Porsches they also had at the dealer. There were no frills, and the carbon fiber doors were so wispy-thin that I got out and unintentionally slammed the door closed. Both my father and his friend gasped; the sticker price on the car, after all, was about 4 times what my father's house was worth at the time. Fast forward to today, and like the real estate market it turns out it would have been pretty smart to buy at the time, because today it's ask is about 3 times what it was when new once again - we've come full circle:

Year: 1990

1990 FERRARI F40

--Red with Red, 5,000 miles from new, 5-speed transmission, Tubi sport exhaust system.

This F40 is absolutely superb, fully serviced throughout and come complete with Ferrari Classiche Certification.

This F40 is immaculate in all respects, it is complete with all books, tools and records as originally delivered from the factory.

Not much more needs to be said in the description; you're not likely to be able to afford one, but they sure are pretty to look at and amazing in person. Thanks to the internet, we've gotten to see more exposure on the F40 than ever over the past few years and if anything, the legend is even bigger than when it was new. The last great car produced under the leadership of Enzo, this car was and is a monster - both in performance and design. While the price may seem outrageous now and is certainly above market value - Hagerty puts a top F40 just over 1,000,000 - I'd guess that in a few decades we'll again look back and see it wasn't so outrageous, afterall - this car will undoubtedly stand alongside such greats as the 250GTO and Daytona as one of the best Ferraris ever made.

1990 Lancia Delta HF Integrale 8V

For those looking for Delta Integrale ownership at a lower cost, the 8V models are a good place to start, as the later model 16V and Evo 1 and 2 models are gaining ground in the collector car market. While there are a few of these rally heroes that have made their way to Canada, most people who have imported them aren't ready to quite part with them just yet. While a few of these Integrales were produced in right-hand drive, most were left-hand drive, even if they were sold in right-hand drive markets. So for those seeking out a bargain for a right-hand drive car, it would be worth your while to seek one out in the British Isles, as long as it is devoid of any rust issues.

1990 Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V Evo

With every passing year, more and more cool motors become eligible for importation as they pass the 25 year rule imposed by tyrannical US bureaucrats. One car that enthusiasts on these shores have been waiting for and just started to gain access to is the Lancia Delta Integrale.

**Please note this vehicle is located in the UK**

Here is a unique opportunity to have one of the first road legal Evoluzione's in the US!
The legendary Lancia Delta HF integrale 16v, finished in Nero Metallic 802 with a Sage green Alcantara Recaro interior.

**VIN NO. ZLA831AB000501475**

The car was originally registered in the UK on May 18th 1990 & gradually rusted away with our salty roads. Around 13 years ago, the owner decided to restore it with everything Evolution including a rot free body shell.

It drives fantastically well with no smoke, dramas or nasty rattles. It has never been involved in an accident & is stock. Also present is the original hand book, service book & lots of old bills / receipts. The car has never had any welding repairs & is still solid. This is a genuine sale & the car is located in central England. You will need to organise your own shipper & getting it to the docks but I will help, however I can. If you have any questions then feel free to send me a message. Thank you.

The Evo I and II are the Integrales that bring the most cash these days, as they are the last of the breed and feature styling and performance enhancements not seen on earlier Integrales. The asking price here is about in line with what Evos are bringing abroad, however, factor in the shipping and customs fees if this was legal to import and it becomes a pricier proposition. Perhaps a few intrepid enthusiasts may go to the trouble of bringing these rally beasts over once the 25 year threshold is reached, but once here, you know they won't be cheap.

1990 Lamborghini LM002A

For a truck built in such limited numbers, the Lamborghini LM002 has built up an impressive cult following over the years. In this day and age, a car like this would probably never make it past the drawing board, given the intense scrutiny given to gas mileage and C02 emissions. One could imagine the cries: “a four-seat, four wheel drive off-roader and you’re going to stick WHAT under the hood?” A Lamborghini V12? Are you mad?!?”

Well, on the brink of survival, Lamborghini did just that in the 1980s, after the initial, rear-engined Cheetah concept went no further than the concept stage. Ceasing production right before the SUV craze began, these brutes went unnoticed for a short while but now are becoming rather popular.

Year: 1990
Model: LM002A
Engine: 5.7 liter V12
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 4,152 miles
Price: $147,888

RARE 1990 Lamborghini LM002-America finished in OEM Gloss Black over OEM Red Leather interior. One of ONLY 48 LM002-Americas produced worldwide. With JUST 4,152 miles from new (6,698 KMS on the ODOD) this truck is as new as a used vehicle gets. This truck's first owner was the famous artist, Christian R Lassen. Included in the sale is the retail sale certificate, warranty registration card, as well as the original window sticker. Along with the "updated" newer OEM factory options exclusive to the LM002 America trucks, sale includes owner's books and USA version book, 4WD lug wrench, tinted windows, updated stereo head and speakers (in OEM locations), newer "Super Swamper" tires with spare (less than 500mi driven), OEM spare tire metal cover with insignia, and RARE OEM factory tonneau cover. All full service was completed 500mi ago. This car is in superior condition inside and out, it's that clean! A 3 stage detail was recently completed. It drives incredibly well being equipped with the upgraded "America" fuel injected Diablo motor. The AC blows ICE COLD. No accidents and a very, very late production LM-002 America. A set of OEM Scorpion "Sand Lip" tires available as well for this vehicle.

For anyone interested in learning more about this truck, Octane magazine had an excellent feature of a restored example and a British concern that is helping to keep these vehicles preserved. Worth noting is that this LM002 has new tires. The Pirelli Scorpions can be had, but if you find them, prepare to pay an eye watering amount of money for them. Given that it has new rubber and low mileage, the price is about in line with what the market is currently dictating. These are fascinating trucks and a curious example of the lunacy that Lamborghini is capable of. For all its faults, you can’t help but love it.

1986 Ferrari Testarossa

Like the Alfa Romeo Spider, Lamborghini Countach and Fiat Cinquecento, the Ferrari Testarossa is one of those Italian icons that is instantly recognizable even to those who aren't automotive enthusiasts. This early Testarossa for sale in Colorado was originally a California car and benefits from a recent engine out service.

1986 Ferrari Testarossa

This is an incredible opportunity to own an investment grade original example of a classic 1986 Ferrari Testarossa with only 24,538 miles!

VIN ZFFSA17A5G0060281

This Testarossa has the most desirable red/tan color combination and is a California car since new! All service is current and most recently had a full engine out service in southern California (documentation included - see picture below). Clean Carfax and Autocheck reports included with sale or run your own. This Ferrari has an impeccably clean history with no dings, dents or scratches whatsoever. Truly as clean as they get. Hemmings Magazine has voted these Ferraris as a desirable investment car and one to watch (see article below)!

Buy it now before prices go up. This is the most inexpensive Ferrari on the market today with under 25,000 miles! Don't miss your chance. The tires have only 200 miles on them and are Michelin TRX Radials ($2,000).

280/45/15 IN THE REAR ON 240TR 415 RIMS

240/45/15 IN THE FRONT ON 210TR 415 RIMS

The Ferrari Testarossa is a 12-cylinder mid-engine sports car manufactured by Ferrari, which went into production in 1984 as the successor to the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer. The Testarossa is a two-door coupe with a fixed roof that premiered at the 1984 Paris Auto Show. All versions of the Testarossa had the power fed through the wheels from a rear-mounted, five-speed manual transmission. The Rear mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout (engine between the axles but behind the cabin) keeps the centre of gravity in the middle of the car, which increases stability and improves the car's cornering ability, and thus results in a standing weight distribution of 40% front: 60% rear.

The Testarossa name, which means "red head" in Italian, comes from the red-painted cam covers on the flat-12 engine. The double entendre with a red-headed woman was intentional – Ferrari and Pininfarina regularly use descriptive terms related to a female's body when describing the style of their automobiles.

Testarossa prices are at an all-time low. A little over a decade ago, these cars were closing in on six figures, but now you can regularly snag one for about half of that price. Expect to pay between $45,000 and $55,000 for a good, driver quality vehicle with anywhere between 15,000 and 40,000 miles on the clock. While they aren't cheap to run or service, these are some of the most iconic cars to wear the Prancing Horse badge of all time. If you have been itching to own one, now is a good time to pull the trigger.

1990 Lamborghini Countach

The Lamborghini Countach was on its last gasp by the time the nineties rolled around. What began as a prototype unveiled at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show lasted all the way to 1990, when the Diablo took over to lead Lamborghini into the 21st century. This 1990 Countach for sale in California looks just as outrageous now as when it debuted on the heels of the equally out of this world Miura.

As a final year example, this certainly holds a bit more desirability for some and in simple black over white leather, the look is timeless.

1990 Ferrari 348TS

The beginning of the 1990s brought to a close one of Ferrari’s most memorable models, the 308/328. Immortalized through the hit TV series Magnum P.I. and numerous kit car tributes that aped its style on lowly Pontiac Fiero mechanicals, this was a car that defined a generation of sports cars and inspired budding car enthusiasts to work hard in the hopes of one day piloting one of these machines. With the arrival of the 348 in 1990, the same mid-engine, V8 formula was in play albeit in more modern clothes. These 348s have found themselves in a bit of a no man’s land in terms of desirability, between the classics and the more modern machines to emerge from the factory in Modena. This 348TS for sale in California is a good opportunity to get a well maintained modern classic at an attractive price.

1990 Ferrari 348TS

Up for sale is my prize 1990 Ferrari 348TS. I purchased a Lambo about a year ago, and have decided to part with this beloved car. This car is beautiful, has no accident history, and is in excellent condition. It has been serviced by Bobileff Motor Cars of San Diego during my ownership. They have all the detailed maintenance records for this car, and can vouch on the condition of this car. The car runs and drives excellent, I wouldn't be afraid to drive the car anywhere. This car is an excellent driver. Car is all original, with no modifications being done to anything. The interior is almost flawless, and in very good condition. Everything works on the car! The air conditioning does work, but is a little temper mental. So if your looking for a really nice 348, that's almost perfect this may be your car. I'm starting this auction at 30K, and no reserve. Bid with confidence, this car is solid, and will go quickly.

This car was my baby for almost 10 Years. It was well loved, and owned with pride. Always garaged, kept clean and dry. Take the time to check this one out, save yourself some cash. This is someone’s rare opportunity to drive a well maintained legion, for very little money. I’m motivated to sell, and will add more pictures. I didn’t provide many pictures of the interior, but it is beautiful with no rips, warn marks or tears what so ever.

I’m glad the seller explained where he’s serviced the car and where one can get detailed records from. Very important with this caliber of sports car. It’s mileage of just under 40,000 is about average for 348s of this vintage and is nice to see, as this hasn’t been a garage queen nor has it been abused to within an inch of its life. Black is a favorite color of mine on these 348s, and the Pininfarina lines has aged quite nicely. It certainly isn’t as dated as some other sports cars of the era. A little more detail on what it would take to fix the A/C would be nice, but for me, I doubt I’d ever have the A/C on, as I’d have the windows down soaking in that legendary Ferrari V8 exhaust note.

1990 Ferrari F40

We featured a Ferrari F40 about a month ago, so it was pleasantly surprising that yet another US spec version has recently come up for sale again. The F40 was the Bugatti Veyron of its day, pushing the performance envelope beyond boundaries no one had yet exceeded, forever cementing its place in supercar history and in the minds of enthusiasts for generations. With under 5,000 miles, this F40 for sale Missouri is pretty much as new.

Fully documented service history performed only by authorized Ferrari Dealerships. All factory campaigns have been performed and over 30 pages of service receipts are present! Complete ownership history is documented as well as a copy of the original window sticker. This F40 scored a 97.5 at a National Ferrari Concours event, the copies of the judging are included. Car #86954 has been certified with the Ferrari Classiche Program and has its recognition plaque as well as the Ferrari Classiche Presentation Book! This F40 is not only in outstanding physical and mechanical condition but is one of the most documented F40's to be available for sale in recent time. Complete with a copy of the original window sticker, books, tool kit and tire inflator.

This F40 has about 2,000 miles less than the F40 that was for sale last month, and is being offered at around a $50,000 premium. I'm not sure if $25,000 per 1,000 miles is really worth it, but I suspect this F40 may sell in the low $600,000 range, which is about the market price for these performance icons.

1990 Chrysler TC by Maserati

There have been many collaborations between Italian and American automobile manufacturers over the years, but possibly none as maligned as much as the Chrysler TC by Maserati. Having met Alejandro DeTomaso while at Ford, Lee Iacocca collaborated with DeTomaso to build a sports car incorporating the best of Italian and American design and engineering. What resulted was the TC, a convertible based on the Dodge Daytona chassis available with three different engines throughout the car's three year production run. On offer was a 2.2 liter turbocharged engine with a 3 speed automatic, a 3.0 liter Mitsubishi V6 with a four speed automatic. The rarest engine and drivetrain combination of all was a 2.2 liter, turbocharged 16 valve four cylinder with a Maserati designed twin came head produced by Cosworth, mated to a Japanese IHI turbocharger and hooked up to a 5 speed manual Getrag transaxle. To add further diversity, the pistons in this engine were made by Mahle in Germany. The alloy wheels, while Italian, were sourced by Fondmetal, a Formula One supplier.

This was certainly an interesting vehicle, but sadly, few took notice. It also didn't help that the motoring press derided this car as little more than a warmed over Chrysler LeBaron. Only 500 TCs were made with the 2.2 liter engine with the Cosworth/Maserati designed head. There are clean examples of TCs to be had in the market, but it's quite uncommon to stumble across a low mileage example of one with the Getrag gearbox and Maserati/Cosworth engine. Here is one for sale with just under 50,000 miles in Michigan.

1990 Chrysler TC by Maserati

1990 Chrysler TC Convertible by Maserati. Only 49,000 original miles. Very rare TC with only 500 ever being built with a 5 speed Getrag manual transmission and a 16 valve Cosworth "Maserati" head on a 2.2L turbocharged inline 4 cylinder engine. The TC was a vehicle built in partnership with Chrysler's Lee Iacocca and Alejandro DeTomaso of Maserati. Produced to give the availability of a luxury sport coupe with both Italian and American heritage.

This low mileage TC is presented in brilliant red with plush hand stitched Italian leather seats. Equipped with a body colored hard top and tan soft top. Power windows, locks and mirrors. Infinity sound system, power driver and passenger seats. Leather dash, armrest and door trim and speciality designed aluminum wheels. This TC is in excellent condition throughout. Leather has less than average wear and exterior is free of rust or problem areas. Issues noted: passenger side hard top window is delaminating and the engine has a bad valve cover gasket, a very common problem but is able to be fixed. Runs and drives excellent. Starts right up and transmission shifts smooth through each gear. Vehicle is being sold as-is.

To be honest, I never liked the TC. And I still don't. But the TC has its loyal following and an active owners club, which will no doubt help in sourcing bespoke parts for this car's engine. For an enthusiast looking for something out of the mainstream, it is hard to beat the uniqueness of this vehicle for the price.
