'special lowering' by Alfa Romeo with strap and tightener visible


Alfa Romeo makes sportive cars. And a lowering matches them very well. On the condition it's a decent one. Just for show, a few cars at the stand were lowered by cargo straps tensioning the springs and reducing its height that way. The staff there was slightly embarrassed as we asked what this part is for, hinting to the tightener which was clearly visible behind the wheel.

Official statement was: 'The spring is pulled down to symbolise a lowering'. They are off the track, this is a lowering - admittedly, a very unusual one. Insiders say that there also were experiments with lacing cord to fix pre-tensioned springs. But, also other cars at the exhibition seemed not quite standard, lowered by what ever trick.
