Classic Alfa Romeo Restoration Services - Alfaholics
Alfaholics offers a full range of options for the restoration of your Alfa Romeo. Whether you wish to return your car to its original specification as it left the factory or incorporate a range of performance upgrades, we have a comprehensive solution to meet your requirements.
Working with our customers
We work very closely with every customer to ensure that the restoration is carefully tailored to match their specific requirements. An initial consultation is used to define the scope of the restoration, which will generally take into account factors such as what type of driving you intend to do and whether the car will be used on track, while also establishing your personal preference in terms of originality versus evolution. We would also discuss various trimming options and colour choices where appropriate.
Classic Alfa Romeo Restoration experience
We are able to draw on our considerable restoration experience to help you make certain decisions not only at the outset but also during the restoration process. Our only rule is that every aspect of the restoration is carried out to the very highest and exacting standards and using the best quality components. On completion, each car undergoes a rigorous road testing programme to include any fine tuning adjustments before delivery to the customer.
Classic Alfa Romeo Retaining originality
We have significant experience in restoring some of the most famous Autodelta competition cars and consequently understand the importance of retaining originality, whilst ensuring that components are serviceable and reliable for future use. Since these period cars featured magnesium castings, our x-ray crack-testing facility is invaluable in assessing the condition of these components.
Classic Alfa Romeo Remanufacturing to original design
We also have an extensive casting programme through which we have remanufactured every GTA-specific magnesium casting. Should your GTA have a missing or irreparably cracked casting, we are able to supply a period correct replacement. Alfaholics is unique in being able to remanufacture aluminium panels in the chemically correct Peraluman 25, to match the original panels used on GTAs. These essential fine details ensure a restoration of impeccable results.
Classic Alfa Romeo Shipping your Car to Alfaholics
We have considerable experience in global shipping of cars and have all the necessary contacts to arrange secure transportation to and from anywhere in the world. Cars arriving from outside Europe are imported under customs bond and therefore any duties and taxes are suspended on entry to the UK.
Classic Alfa Romeo Race Car Builds

Classic Car Alignment
We own the only set of Celette 105 series jig brackets in the UK, which we use to check the alignment of every bodyshell prior to the commencement of the build.
Classic Alfa Romeo Modifications
Using our experience, we make a number of modifications to each bodyshell in order to improve its torsional rigidity and address those areas which we know to be weak.
Once the assembly is completed, each car undergoes an extensive setup procedure using our ‘flat floor’ & corner weighting facilities, ensuring that it leaves Alfaholics ready to win!
