NO NO NO !!!  Huh Alfa Romeo engine in Matra Murena really isn't my dream, if Yours, why You didn't buy an Alfa Romeo? I say that all modifications are only DAMAGING this unique car! If somebody likes tuning, he can damage VW, Ford, Skoda etc. but NOT Matra!!!
Don't be angry to me, but engine with valve cover where is written Alfa Romeo and on the other side is Matra Sports, is something from "Frankenstein garage" and wheels on the picture from krede makes the Murena looking like tractor, I am very sorry but these convertions are killing Murena spirit...
Azev A wheels are nice, Brock B1 are nice, BBS RS1 are beautifull... but on BMW E30, VW Golf, Ford Escort, NEVER on Murena!

With my first Murena I had a lot of troubles with engine - 5 times repaired, but I never changed the original 2,2 with something other because in that moment it won't be Matra for more. I want to have exactly Matra Murena - that's why I bought Matra Murena, so I will allways keep it in 100% original condition!

If the 2.2 or the 1.6 was a Matra engine I might agree with you but both are old Simca engines - they were ancient in the 1980's.  The 2.2 was out-dated when the murena was first built and should never have been used in the first place.  Only French politics prevented the use of a more modern engine.

If you are happy driving an original classic good for you, but there is no need to criticise anyone else for trying to improve their car.

By the way, if Alfa built a mid engined three seater sportscar with a galvanised chassis then I would but one...

I don't want to critize or hurt somebody (except of people like owner of that Ferrari Murena on the ebay, mobile.de and autoscout.de), I only want to say, that I don't agree with tuning on Matra.

"...if Alfa built a mid engined three seater sportscar with a galvanised chassis then I would buy one..." Hmm... that's different from my point of view - I will allways buy Talbot, Matra or Simca cars only, because I am fan of them, not of anything else...
