1985 Alfa Romeo 185T Formula One, Chassis #3



1985 Alfa Romeo 185T Formula One, Chassis #3

- Full original specification and a fascinating piece of Alfa Romeo history

- Car is undergoing a full, ground up restoration with TDF-Heritage


TDF-Heritage are proud to offer this 1985 Alfa Romeo 185T for the first time to the open market. The car is presented with all the necessary equipment to run, and some wonderful original pieces, including a period laptop. 




The 185T and chassis #3 especially, are a unique part of Alfa Romeo’s motorsport history. The 185T competed in the 1985 season with Riccardo Patrese and Eddie Cheever, achieving 9th place finishes at Detroit and Silverstone. Benetton Team Alfa Romeo finished the season with the previous year’s 184TB, while work continued on the 185T to improve its form for 1986, with a different engine installed into each of the three chassis. Chassis #3 was fitted with a Motor Moderni turbocharged V6 and the car is presented in this configuration today as a complete one off, offering its new owner a piece of F1 history with a fascinating story.


The Restoration


Currently undergoing a full restoration with TDF-Heritage, chassis #3 will be delivered ready to run. The car has been completely stripped down and all components are undergoing crack testing. The monocoque will have an ultrasound inspection and then on to paint for a faithful recreation of the iconic, period Benetton livery. The engine is being completely rebuilt in-house and will have dyno miles only upon delivery. Its original gearbox will be rebuilt to the new owner’s specification as a 5 or 6 speed unit. A brand new fuel cell will be installed, with up to date safety features and new electronic systems.


TDF-Heritage are available to support the new owner at any event they may wish to attend with this unique and very eligible historic Formula One car. This is a fantastic opportunity to own a car in completely originalspecification, with worldwide support from TDF-Heritage’s experienced engineers.
