Giugiaro’s Alfa: ’86 Alfa Romeo GTV6
Motor magazines have quoted the Busso V-6 engine as one of the best sounding engines ever. The British Classic & Sportscar noted it as “The best sounding engine, this side of a Maserati V-8”. If you’ve ever heard one at full chat, it is a very cool sound. We really like these Alfas after years of not really liking the way they look. But the Giugiaro design is now appreciated and has become pretty neat to look at. If you look carefully, you’ll notice some details that were first deployed in the Montreal like the scallops over the headlights and the tail light cluster. Today’s offering came from fellow Alfa Club member Michael B.. This is a well documented original GTV6, previously owned by Andy Reid of Classic Motorsport Magazine. See Andy’s comments in a recent CMM article he wrote. Said to be the last or one of the last GTV6 imported to USA; while the seller cannot prove that, he has yet to see a higher VIN number. The car’s condition considering its age is quite impressive. Interior is beautiful with no dash cracks, factory cloth seats impeccable, original paint is beautifully preserved. From what we can tell from the detailed photos Michael supplied, you’ll get no argument from us! The list of recent maintenance and replaced parts is impressive. It even has A/C although as he states, it might need a micro-switch to get 100% effective.
