Besides being built into this racing car model, it turns out that the Tipo 33 sports car had also been transformed into several other models and that's have discussed before. And a small number of road-going cars were derived from it in 1967, called Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, and become one of the most beautiful and the most sought after sports cars in the world.

As we already know, that Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 was a sports racing prototype built in a limited number used to race by the Alfa Romeo factory-backed team in 1967 and continued development through to 1977. These cars took part for the World Sports Cars Championship, Nordic Challenge Cup, Interserie and CanAm series.

In 1968, Alfa's subsidiary, Autodelta, created an evolution model called 33/2. A road version, dubbed Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale was also introduced. At the 24 Hours of Daytona, the Porsche 907 with 2.2L engines were dominating the overall race, but Alfa took the 2-liter class win, with Udo Schütz and Nino Vaccarella; after that, the car was named as "Daytona". Since then this racing car model has been known as the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/2 Daytona.

The win was repeated at the Targa Florio, where Nanni Galli and Ignazio Giunti also took second place overall, followed by teammates Lucien Bianchi and Mario Casoni. Galli and Giunti then won the class at the Nürburgring 1000 km, where the 2.5L version finished for the first time, 4th place in the 3.0L class with Schütz and Bianchi.

However, in most races, the Alfa drivers were outclassed by their Porsche rivals which used bigger engines. In 1968, the car was used mainly by privateers, winning its class in the 1000km Monza, Targa Florio and Nürburgring races.

At the end of the season, Alfa Romeo had finished third in the 1968 International Championship for Makes. A total of 28 cars were built during 1968, allowing the 33/2 to be homologated as a Group 4 Sports Car for 1969.
Furthermore, with the 33TT12 racing car model, Alfa Romeo won the 1975 World Championship for Makes, and with the 33SC12 the 1977 World Championship for Sports Cars, taking the first place in all eight of the car racing championships. All kinds of racing car models mentioned above are derived by the Tipo 33 as well. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GIRARDO.COM | GASHETKA]
