If you spend any time falling down the various holes in the automotive interwebs there’s a pretty good chance you’ve stumbled across ‘Alfaholics’. A brand that first came across our radar a few years ago after a feature on Matt Farah’s ‘The Smoking Tire’ YouTube channel, we’ve been eyeballing them ever since, desperate to figure out how we can plant a money tree to get our hands on one.
How would we spec ours? Just like this GTA-R Specification 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000 by Alfaholics that’s popped up on Bring a Trailer. Red over black, Alfaholics-Built 2.1L Inline-Four, Close-Ratio Five-Speed Manual Transmission, Limited-Slip Differential, Six-Piston Front Brake Calipers, Titanium Suspension Components, and Carbon-Fiber Hood & Trunk Panels. So, basically everything we love about cars in a nutshell.
With a history that dates back to 2020, this particular example found it’s way from BaT to Texas before it was sent to Alfaholics in Somerset, UK, for conversion to the company’s GTA-R Upgraded specification (details on that below). After completing the conversion, the car was returned to the seller in Texas in August 2021 and now finds itself back on BaT with Alfaholics build sheets, photos from the build, a matching luggage set, invoices from previous ownership, owner’s manual, and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name.

It’s fair to assume that this 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000 now goes as well as it looks. The previous owner of the car has already completed a full restoration of the body with a bare metal respray, however, Alfaholics took things a step further by disassembling the car down to its shell, refurbishing the paint, and installing a carbon bonnet and trunk.
Inside, the cabin was reupholstered by Alfaholics in black leather with GTV-style stitching over the front seats as well as the rear bench seat. The dashboard has been converted to a GTV 1750-style dash and panels were fitted and trimmed in black Alcantara. A MOMO Prototipo steering wheel is the cherry on top.
The total cost of the build is over $360,000 AUD or £202,000.
