I love Alfa's but I don't know about that thing. Rather have a CJ7 Golden eagle.

Among my most fond memories: LandRover Model 88 Series IIA. But could never bring myself to pay $58K for one.

Or you could go the Lamborghini LM002 route complete with 5 or 7 litre V12 engine

I can remember being mightily impressed with a report as a young man that it could "smoke all 4 wheels"
