And the best news is: this modern interpretation of the Alpine A108 goes into production!
The original Willys Interlagos of the sixties was based on the Alpine A108. No, it was actually an Alpine A108, that by Willys-Overland in license building. A few years ago, I went into already rumors about a possible revival of this Brazilian sports car, but last month it was announced that the moment is right. And how!
This new Interlagos, called AW 380 Berlineta, namely a 3.8-litre biturbo six-cylinder boxer engine from Porsche (who else?) under the hood, which is opgekieteld to an adult 610 hp. The torque is a gargantueske 830 Nm and is via the rear wheels through a sequential 6-speed on the asphalt is transferred.
Thus racing the Willys from a standstill to 100 km/h in 2.7 seconds, the acceleration stops at 340 km/h. The remmerij consists of carbon-ceramic discs with six-piston front and four behind. The empty weight is a reasonable 1.350 kg.
Now the bad news: there will be (from next year) only 110 built, and they cost at least 380.000 euros per piece. Nevertheless, this is a quite successful attempt of Maggiora and Carrozzeria Viotti to become a classic in a modern twist to cross.
