1985 ALFA ROMEO GTV-6


Specifications


Description

 

Alfa Romeo's last truly innovative car, the Alfetta GTV 6, oozed luxury and motor sport pedigree.

It ticked all the boxes; A classic rear wheel drive experience, something I could occasionally use on the track but comfortable enough for daily use.

The GTV 6 is one of my favourite cars. Styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The same designer responsible for the previous Alfa 105 GTV albeit under the studio name Bertone.

Alfa Romeo is renowned for pioneering the highest performance cars embodied in the most beautiful bodies and the Alfetta was no different, injected with Formula 1 tech. Torsion bar front suspension, de Dion rear suspension, twin plate clutch, rear mounted gear box, inboard rear brakes, and the Busso designed 2.5L V6 engine. No other car in the segment rivaled this much innovation. It had Porsche 944's whimpering in the corner.

ABOUT THIS CAR

  • Driving it - The engine barks with each downshift, ricocheting off nearby surfaces. The brake pedal sinks into the footwell, pinching the front left momentarily into the corner. Weight galloping onto the front axle, the car gently begins to rotate. Modulating the throttle around the bend the steering becomes feather light and delicate. Slung low to the ground like a kitten pouncing on a piece of string, the car scours all over the surface for traction. It's the classic rear wheel drive experience coupled with an Italian aura of passion. The more the car is driven the better it behaves with zero reliability concerns.
  • Spare keys, spare wheel, jack all come with car.
  • Service history available. Cambelts and water pump done July 2020 at 87305kms.
  • Clean, straight rust free body with good original paint.
  • Healthy Motor - starts first pop, runs and drives well.
  • Good tires, battery etc.
  • Very tidy usable example - weekend car or daily driver you choose.

These are great cars that will only go up in value. Our advise is to buy the best condition car you can find and this one is pretty well sorted.  Lots of fun and that engine note just sounds awesome - hard to beat actually.

DISCLAIMER

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.

Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.

Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.

We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.
