Video: Alfaholics GTA-R vs MST Escort MKI vs Porsche 912c By Kamm

Four-cylinder restomods can be just as fun as stuff with twice the power. Cue much ear-shattering noise...

Published: 31 Aug 2023

The beans-on-toast of the car world, right? But that's where you're wrong. Because in the next 20-minutes TG's Head of Car Testing Ollie Marriage will demonstrate how three restomods from Alfaholics, MST and Kamm can put a bigger smile on your face than something with twice the power, and twice the cylinder count.

From MST's throttle-boddied, 9,000rpm BDG engine to Alfaholics' bored and stroked 2.3-litre Twin-Spark and Kamm's Swiss-built air-cooled lightweight, turn it up, sit back - and bask in the sounds of the mighty four.
