Buying Guide

Good

  • GT and GTV replaced beautiful Bertone 105 Series coupes.
  • Teardrop shape, with back end sitting low on its haunches. 4,191mm (13' 9") long x 1,651mm (5' 5") wide.
  • Front engine with 5-speed rear transaxle gearbox.
  • Began with 1779cc 1750 engine, then joined by a 1.6 Junior.
  • Later cars had 1962cc 2.0 twin cam with 130bhp, but the one to find is the V6 with either a 2492cc 158bhp V6, or the rare 2959cc 3.0V6 which had 192bhp.
  • Haynes manual available, 1973-1986, excluding 2.5V6 GTV. www.haynes.co.uk

Bad

  • Weren't as perfectly balanced as front gearbox 105 series coupes and spiders.
  • Could snap into oversteer.

Watch

  • Suffers from Alfa bodyrot, fall-apart trim.
  • Things like the trim and the huge front windscreen hard to replace.
