The Bring a Trailer web portal on Saturday, May 16, ended the auction for the sale of bulletproof Alfa Romeo Alfetta 2000. For the exclusive variation of the 1980 production sedan, the new owner paid $ 11,750

  The car was purchased by a new member of the Italian mafia Francesco Muto, nicknamed “Franco”. Mafiosi turned to a specialist in armored vehicles, who equipped the car with protective plates on the body and doors, additional windows, bulletproof wheels, additional door locks and a radio station. All this added 590 kg of weight (the sedan became heavier to 1730 kg).

Outside, an armored car is no different from a simple model. The car has traveled 12,792 km for all time, and to this day it has been preserved in a completely original condition.

 On the technical side, the bulletproof Alfa Romeo remained the same: the 4-door has a 121-horsepower “four” with a volume of 2.0 liters with two carburetors and a 5-speed manual transmission.

 Production of the Alfetta model itself was carried out from 1972 to 1984, and a total of over 400 thousand units were produced.
