1984 Alfa Romeo GTV6 Loubet Rothmans Group A replica

Initially bought to break for spares, this 1984 GTV 2.0 was bought unseen. When it arrived, the body was too good to be broken. Restoring it was not an option so a idea began to tickle: build a true replica of the GTV6 succesfully raced by Yves Loubet in the mid 80's.

Here are compiled the process to (slowly) build a GTV6 Group A racer from scratch.

Work session II.

Last Sunday 8, March, we decided to have a working session with the GTV, so we took off all the old wiring loom, completely. It looks to be in a decent state, has no patches or horrors, except for an awful connection for the radio and a couple of unindentified things in the door jambs, never seen on a GTV. They look like an alarm sensors.  We also got rid off to the last remains of the insulation mats, in the fire fender. It weights quite a lot. No point for thinks like these in a full race car.

Interior and rear trunk

Yesterday the interior was practically dismantled. Seats, trim, dashboard, air conditioning console, various mouldings and fitting .... everything is out now. Also withdrew the bulk of the wiring., the pedals bracket with brake pump and clutch pump.

Start dissasembling

Today I've started disassembling. The goal is to leave the body completely empty of all elements that impede subsequent work. We'll evaluate the extends of any damages and repairs should be carried out.

We start from a body of a GTV 2.0, which looks good, strong and solid, with only minor dings, and two spots of corrosion, pretty ugly, but not very complicated to repair. Today we left the underhood empty, except for some things, and started with interior, with most of the trim and rear seats removed.

Alfa Romeo GTV6 Group A Rothmans Replica

During the 80's, french rally driver Yves Loubet raced one of the most successful rally Alfa Romeos ever. 2888 US 06 was its number plate, and scored a row of class wins and great overall clasifications during 1984, 1985 and 1986 seasons, before the FIA reglamentation changes that banned the Alfa coupe. This car built by LUIGI RACING with some input from Autodelta, was later maintained by GEMA RACING. The impressive list of specifications was developed to a fine state or art, giving the car great performance against superior rally machinery.
