Evaluation: Quick, old repaint with some overspray in the wheel wells. Good upholstery and interior wood trim. Orderly, but aged and somewhat grimy engine compartment. Superficially restored some time ago but claimed to have $176,000 in mechanical work since 2017.
Bottom Line: Sold post-block. Stylish, competently presented with a superficial repaint, though aged and used. That it needed $176,000 in mechanical work over a four-year period is not reassuring, either for the mechanical condition or for the caliber of work done earlier. A bidder’s willingness to pony up even this much is a tribute to RM’s persuasiveness after it passed the auction block. This is full retail for this Alfa’s condition.
