Bell & Colvill, the West Horsley Alfa Romeo distributors, have added another car to their list of turbocharged specials, this time a Garrett AiResearch turbocharged version of the 2-litre Giulietta.
Claimed performance figures of to 60 m.p.h. in under 8 seconds, a top speed of 125 m.p.h., all at 24 m.p.g., driven hard, seem excellent for a car costing less than £8,000.

Seen on the A4 recently, a giant teddy bear apparently at the wheel of a Volvo articulated lorry . . . the German driver must have had a rather impish sense of humour.
