1986 Alfa Romeo GTV6 2.5

The Alfa Romeo GTV6 is one of those cars that is greater than the sum of its parts. Originating from the Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT which bowed in 1974, the GTV moniker debuted in 1978 on the 2.0 liter version of the car, which at the time, was the top engine choice. In late 1981, the GTV became the recipient of a SOHC 2.5 liter V6 taken from the Alfa Romeo 6, perhaps one of their most forgettable executive sedans. The V6 also received Bosch fuel injection in a move to solve the carburettor issues the Alfa Romeo 6 suffered.

The GTV6, as it was called, was hailed in the motoring press as a well balanced sports coupe, and it enjoyed racing successes in both the British Touring Car Championship and Australian Rally Championship. These coupes were marketed in the US and along with the Alfa Romeo 75 (Milano), they are revered by Alfisti as the last true Alfas before the Fiat takeover. I do come across quite a number of GTV6s for sale on a regular basis, but few as nice as this one for sale in Texas.

1986 Alfa Romeo GTV6

Alfa Romeo GTV6 in Excellent condition (I’ll rate it 9.9/10) Always garaged kept. No dash board cracks. The car has the original Campagnolo magnesium wheels, including the spare. It has a working rear window defroster, power windows, power door locks and power mirrors. AC needs a charge and I suspect that there is a minor leak can go through the summer with one charge. NO 2nd gear syncro. Tires have 85% left. This car is all original, except for 4 new koni Yellow shocks and an ANSA muffler. It has been lowered to Euro specs.

This GTV6 is in the rarest condition you’ll ever find never been painted or upholstered 100% rust free.
NOW for all the Alfistis out there – this is the last GTV6 to be imported into the USA. As you can tell the rear emblem says Alfa 6 2.5 – the story behind it is that Alfa run out of emblems so they used the ones from the sedan (Alfa 90). I would not sell if not for the fact that i have to many Alfas/Fiats/projects and I would rather keep my GTV6 racer.

Bidding is up past $7,000 with a few days left, not having met the reserve. The most mint examples of these Alfas usually sell in the $12,000 to $15,000 range. Taking into account the AC repair, if this could GTV6 could be had for around $10,000, it would be a solid buy for a significant piece of Alfa Romeo history.

  1. Robert,

    The cars featured here on CICFS are not our own; rather, we post vehicles from third party sellers. The online auction for this car has ended so one can assume it was sold.

    Regards,

  2. Hi John,

    Thanks for your input. Right now I am the only person keeping CICFS going. I don’t have as much time as I’d like to pour into the site.

    That said, I do like to keep the ads active so both the readers and I can refer back to with regards to where cars were priced for comparison purposes.

    Will try my best to improve things when I can in the future.

    Paul
