Alfasud Sprint 1.5 Veloce trofeo

Alfasud Sprint Veloce 1.5 trofeoLogo Sprint trofeoThe Alfasud Sprint 1.5 Veloce trofeo was a special edition launched in 1982. It was called trofeo in order to show the close relation between a serial Alfasud Sprint and the trophy race cars used in the Trofeo Sprint.
In Germany, Alfa Romeo advertised the trofeo with the following words "Wer den fahren will, muß schnell schalten: ALFA ROMEO Sprint ,trofeo' ", meaning :"The one who wants to drive it has to be quick...". A right, were there only 200 cars reserved for German buyers.
The most important optical difference between the trofeo and its usual brothers was the silvergrey metallic body-paint with a darkblue-grey stripe along the Alfasud Sprint 1.5 Veloce trofeowaist line. At the rear of the car, this stripe bared the word "trofeo" in it. In addition to the special colour the trofeo also offered bi-colour alloy wheels (with a dark grey centre and a silver ring arround it) - just as the ones of the <<Plus>> special edition. The B-pillar was also painted in grey.
The interior was equipped with special grey Tweed uppolstery which shouldThe fabrics. distinguish it from the usual Sprints. On the glove compartment lid, there was a trofeo-badge. The only engine available was the 1.5 litre 95 bhp version which made the Sprint run over 175 kph. 19.290 DM had to be paid for an Alfasud Sprint 1.5 Veloce trofeo.
