1953 Alfa Romeo 900 Bartoletti race car transporter
Model of the transporter used by the Alfa Romeo racing team to transport their beautiful racing cars. The truck is a 'technic supercar' and it'll fit about 7 cars.
About this creation
After 6 months of work I can now present to you with pride: a fully functional model of the Alfa Romeo transporter, build for the well known Classic Race teams group. I have already trapped Senator Chinchilla into building one of those beautiful Alfa Romeo's, but that leaves 6 places left in the Alfa Romeo team, so I'm still looking for more people to build some cars to fill up those empty spaces.

Specifications:
- 130 studs long
- 20 studs wide
- 31 studs high

- 3,6 kg.

- suspension
- engine
- gearbox
- steering (on the truck and the trailer)
- opening doors
- lowering ramp
- tiltable cabin

But apart from the technical stuff, the truck drives very smooth and steers easy, making this a very playable creation. Even more then my previous transporter. The model features hand-of-god steering, but the gearbox is operated from inside the cabin.




The transporter has suspension on all wheels. Double wishbone on the front wheels of the truck and solid axle on the rear wheels with differential. The trailer has live axle suspension on the front wheels and double wishbone on the rear. All together, the truck uses 14 6.5 long shock absorbers.



The transporters cabin was made by Alfa Romeo and the bodywork by Bartoletti. Bartoletti also added that Mille grill.
The grill from the Lego model was quite fun to design and looks cool too. There’s a lot of SNOT in there, but not all visible from outside. The cabin was enlarged during the building process, so it now has 2 rows of seats and is more spacious. The roof was a real pain to make, but afterwards it looks very nice to me.























Merry Christmas and a happy new year to everybody!

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Whoa, massive! Quite the transporter, I'm always impressed by people who can build cars for their cars. ;) Love the colour scheme and shape of this, the solid construction of the cabin contrasts well with the almost lacy container sections.
Thanks!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 wow, I really dig those old trucks, you have great taste, [mine,lol] and all those technics-alities, amazing, what a great job you did on these curves, you mention gearbox, but, not the speeds, does it have 4-5 speeds? I really can t wait until you craft us a radio-controled 4-5 speed transmission vehicle, and film it in action! superb truck, if I had the time, I d join the club and build you another car!
Well, you're always welcome when you feel like building a car! As for the gearbox, it has 3 speeds. I have just changed the page. Thanks for your nice reaction!

Quoting Larry Pan Sorry for not commenting earlier, this is FANTASTIC!!! The SNOT involved is mindboggling, and yet you still managed to put working functions in it as well. My favorite creation of yours, and one of the best in CRT. 5/5
Thanks, Larry! In my opinion this is my best one yet too. And don't mind, every reaction is welcome, early or late.

Quoting Ape Fight Oh wow!! Lol at the first comment at the bottom of this page! This is INCREDIBLE! Every time someone uploads a Transporter to the group that's this good I get very excited, and then also mutter a bit under my breath as my own Fiat moves further and further down the rankings. And this, I think, may go in at the top of the pile. Not only does it look utterly brilliant, you've packed in loads of awesome Technic features. One of the stand-out models of 2012 for me, 10/10 : )
Come on, Ape, you should have a bit more confidence! Your transporter is awesome, and even if you think it might not be the best, it still is the 'face' of the group. Your truck is the one that got it all started!

Quoting Vibor Cavor Very nicely done! I love the colors on the truck and also the use of technic beams is perfectly incorporated into system parts. It's right where it should be.
Thanks! Actually, those technic beams were a last minute addition. They do look good though.

Quoting Senator Chinchilla . Such a nice truck! I really like all the red beamy ness, and the whole back just looks so neat. The cabin is pretty cool, too. And all those functions. And the blogging at Lego Car Blog can't hurt. =) (You're there again!) Makes me wish my Alfa were riding in the back.
