Alfa Romeo GTV 6 2.5 Grand Prix
First registration 06.1986
Only about 800 pieces produced
40 years ago was it so far: As face-lifted Alfa Romeo GTV 6 succeeded to the sports car with 118 kW/160 HP performing V6 a furious new start in the competition surrounding Porsche 924/944, Nissan 280 ZX, Ford Capri 2.8 Injection or Opel Monza, in addition, against Lancia Montecarlo and Maserati Merak 2000 V6. The Alfa GTV “Sei”, as the Italians also advertised their sound-strong six-cylinder with fuel injection in this country, brought the Alfetta story and the legendary transaxle design principle (engine at the front, transmission, clutch and differential at the rear axle) to a climax.
More important for the sports coupé clientele were, of course, other facts, first and foremost driving performance. Here, too, the GTV 6 lived up to its image as a thunderbolt, because in practice it clearly surpassed the restrained brochure figures. In contemporary tests, the V6 sprinted from 0 to 100 km/h in around eight seconds and the top speed was measured at up to 220 km/h, putting the 1980 Alfa even on a par with the far more expensive BMW 6 Series and Mercedes SL, but above all it made an announcement in the competitive field.
While the Alfetta sedan was sent into its final round of production in 1984, the coupé continued to be built until 1986. A total of about 135,400 coupé versions were produced, of which 22,381 were the GTV6 and only about 800 the special GTV6 Grand Prix model, which was fitted with a special aerodynamic kit, decorative stripes and special aluminum wheels by Rayton Fissore.
