1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6
Garage Kept Motors is pleased to offer this rare and increasingly collectible 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6. The GTV-6 came to fruition in 1981 when Alfa Romeo equipped the GTV coupe with a Bosch fuel-injected version of their SOHC 2.5-liter V-6 engine with aluminum head and block. The new Alfa Romeo GTV-6 was praised in the press for its greater performance when compared to its four-cylinder predecessor (0-60 in 8.3 seconds, 1/4 mile in 16.2 seconds), as well as for the sound it produced at high rpm.
“The V-6 engine has always been the car's main appeal; it still makes those great Italian ripping-raw-fabric sounds, has lots of torque and sends the car down the road smartly.” - Road and Track
Like the 2.0-liter GTV that it replaced, the GTV-6's driveline consisted of a five-speed transaxle and differential at the rear of the car, with rear inboard disc brakes, all of which lessened unsprung mass. Suspension was typical for Alfa Romeo at the time: double wishbones up front and a deDion axle in the rear. This arrangement, coupled with the weight distribution offered by its front engine/rear transaxle, made for a very balanced and pleasant handling car. The GTV-6 was produced from 1981 to 1986 with just 22,000 models made in total.
The example offered here came out of local collection that has been stored for the past thirty years. It was purchased new through American Imports of Indianapolis, IN and is just a two owner vehicle. The 41k mileage shown on the odometer is original. Before selling, the previous owner went through the entire car, updating the fuel tank, injectors, fuel pump, brake system, clutch, oil and all fluids. It also has brand new Pirelli tires. The car remains all original and rust-free. The vehicle is finished in the original Grigio Nube (Gray Cloud) paint over the original Black leather interior. It is powered by the original 2.5L Fuel Injected V6 engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox with rear-wheel drive. Noteworthy features include mesh head rests, bucket rear seats, manual sunroof, power windows, tool kit, books, manuals, and rear hatch. The car is a blast to drive and handles like its Italian brothers.
These cars continue to appreciate and according to Hagerty Valuation, average No. 3 examples are valued at $13,400, making this a deal at the price offered here. This is an awesome Italian example from the 1980's that won't break the bank and is projected to increase in value for years to come.
