1980-1987 ALFA ROMEO Alfetta GTV6 specifications

1980-1987 ALFA ROMEO Alfetta GTV6 specifications Classic and Performance Car

As big Alfa saloons go the Six was not a huge success, but we owe the existence of one of the best-sounding Alfa Romeos to the failed executive saloon – and it donated its wonderful V6 engine to the Alfetta GTV. Running a new Bosch fuel injection system, the V6’s power was up to 160bhp, giving the GTV6 a very useful power hike, as well as one of the most sublime soundtracks in motoring history. Like the Alfetta GT and GTV before it a good GTV6 was a phenomenally good car in the bends – especially as it finally had the power to exploit it.
