Chris Harris Drives... Retro: Ferrari 250LM, Mini Cooper S, Alfaholics GTA-R | Top Gear

This time Harris is behind the wheel of some old timers.... kind of. With these beautiful restomods and recreations, they're not necessarily as old as their beautiful looks suggest.
In the mix is a Ferrari 250LM going around Goodwood, the near-£200k Alfaholics GTA-R, and a recreation of the Bugatti Type 35. Not a bad showing then, eh?

  • Heavily influenced by my dad who had a 1960 Giulietta Saloon (1292 cc) from new, purchased in South Africa, (Pretoria to Cape Town in 13.5 hours - including some considerable stretches of dirt roads at the time - a total of 998 miles), Europe for 5 years and then South Africa again, followed by a 1600 Giulia Super in the mid-seventies, and another Giulia Super with 1750 motor and dropped suspension back in the late seventies which I was allowed to drive once I had my licence - built by Datsun SA under licence; I purchased my own Alfetta 1800 saloon as a first car (same 1750 motor at 1779 cc). Absolutely loved all of them; the Alfetta was probably slightly more fragile - the start of the Russian-tin era and built by Alfa Romeo South Africa rather than Datsun/Nissan.....but definitely out-handled all it's ancestors... As a teen I worked at an Alfa-centric service station which cemented my love of all things Alfa Romeo. I drove Giulia Supers, step-front Juniors - not really my favourite as engine was small at 1292cc, Veloce's of various engine sizes and (only once) the final iteration 2 liter Veloce as well as the Duetto's and later Spiders and the Giulietta's that came out around that time. My favourite? 1750 Veloce - balance and poise in the twisties - only beaten by my own Alfetta Saloon which had superb 50/50 balance due to the de Dion rear axle and gearbox (anyone for a highway cloverleaf with an entry speed of 100 mph? exit 270 degrees at 85 mph) but hell, I would have loved to try the 2 litre Veloce in the same conditions. The one time I drove it the available torque over the 1600 and 1750 was super impressive, but no twisties as I was only delivering the car back to it's owner. I really want a Veloce or Junior today but with the Alfaholics specs. Sadly, at £190k- totally unaffordable. I should have built it way back then when I had the chance - but no money. 2.3 litre... what engine is that - must be bored out? and I would totally chrome that Cam cover and oil cap rather than black crackle 'em. Love the fact that the plug leads head back into the cab... what an incredibly awesome way to deal with condenser location, although that seems to be a long route back to the dizzy (no doubt it's not a distributor anymore either!) I'd give up a well over-used genital part to drive that car.....You are so, so, very lucky Mr Harris - I am green with envy!

  • You're a role model and a hero Chris. I'm so sorry about your mom mate. I lost my dad, but seeing how you've dealt her passing has been an inspiration to me, to work harder in my dad's honor. Thank you for being an incredible human being, an incredible artist, and for dedicating so much time into making the most incredible videos.
