This 1980 Alfa Romeo Alfetta 2000 Blindata was sold new in Cetraro, Italy, to Francesco “Franco” Muto, a reputed member of the Italian mafia. The car is said to have been modified in period by armored vehicle specialist Marazzi, with additions including 1,300 pounds of armor plating, a dual fire suppression system, bulletproof wheels and tires, and more. Finished in white with a brown velour interior, the car is powered by a 2.0L inline-four paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. It was last registered in 1981, and has been entered in various shows and events since becoming part of the seller’s collection in 2013. Now showing just under 13k kilometers (~8k miles), this Tipo 116 is offered at no reserve in Munich, Germany with export documents and the previous Italian registration.

The exterior is finished in white and was reportedly modified under previous ownership with 1,300 pounds of armor plating and an intercom system. Some touch-ups and scratches are noted in the paint along with weathering of body seals, and close-ups of the imperfections are provided in the gallery above.

15″ steel wheels are said to have been bulletproofed during the modifications, and are mounted with older Dunlop Denovo run-flat tires measuring 195/65.

The interior is trimmed in brown velour with matching door panels and carpets as well as a black dash. Marazzi is said to have installed bulletproof windows with additional plexiglass splitter protection, additional locks for the doors, and a telecommunication system. An air conditioning system remains fitted.

A three-spoke steering wheel frames instrumentation including a 200-km/h speedometer and a 7,500-rpm tachometer. The five-digit odometer shows just under 13k kilometers (~8k miles).

The 2.0L twin-cam inline-four sends power to the rear wheels via a rear-mounted five-speed manual transaxle. The seller notes that the car has not been registered since 1981, and recommends an inspection prior to road use.

Included in the sale are Italian registration documents assigned to Francesco Muto.
