Well I got as far as Puma and Alfa Metais Veículos, seems like rear engind VW based sports cars were a big thing in Brazil!

I even didn't blank the emblems on the wheels.

Don't be over confident, it's not always a car from Brazil B)

The Bianco is not a kit car, it's a production car designed after a race car that was built in the 1970's by a guy named Tony Bianco, and had Alfa Romeo underpinings, including the engine.

The car was called great looking by so many people, that Tony decided to start a company and make a street version of his race car.

Like using Alfa Romeo engines would make the car super expensive, he adapted the project to use the VW Brasilia chassis and engine.

The engines were hopped up to produce between 130 and 140 Hp, and they were not slow, but not "fast" either.

The cars were hand made, and quality was high, but even with hopped up engines, the car never could deliver what it's looks promised.

I also thought it was a vw based kit car, that's why I never found it. Oh well better luck next time.

This is the original race car that gave birth to the Bianco. It's name is Fúria GT (Rage GT)

The car was taken to SEMA in 2011.

A beautiful machine . It is always the same . Italy is full of frustrated Ferarri Drivers stuck in Fiats . An Alfa Powered car does not make the transition to a Smog Control VW Engined Street Car . ..lol.. Thanx ..
