Erredibi Motori is bringing us a rare and important car within the context of Alfa Romeo's legacy. At the stand, there will also be a Ferrari 412, which has previously been exhibited at the Maranello museum, a 308 Ferrari with a dry sump oil system and a Lamborghini Murciélago.

It's 1988. Alfa Corse lines up the duo Miki Biasion and Tiziano Siviero and Formula 1 racer Riccardo Patrese at the starting line of the Giro d'Italia in Imsa-configured Alfa 75 Turbo Evoluzione cars with 335 horsepower. These pairings prove unbeatable and dominate the competition that year and the following ones. 

It is within this context that the Alfa 75 A1 Imsa model, which Erredibi Motori is bringing to Padua 2019, was conceived. It is a 1987 model (026 frame) created by Alfa Corse for the Top Run Racing team. It was subsequently transferred to the Dutch championship where it was transformed, following Alfa Corse's guidelines and Imsa specifications. It is an important car which continued its sporting career by competing in the Alfa Romeo Challenge in Holland in which it achieved excellent results. Its sporting prowess is also why the vehicle has earned a spot in the article "Alfa 75 and Milan: driven to be different", written by Paul Koebrugge and preserved at the Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese.

But this is only one of the models brought to Padua by Erredibi Motori: in addition to this, there's a Ferrari 412, which was exhibited at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello on the occasion of "the Drake's favourites" in Geneva, a Ferrari 308 with a dry sump oil system, and a practically brand-new Lamborghini Murciélago LP 62 with a mechanic gearbox. Don't miss out on the chance to see these models with your very own eyes.
