The Alfa Romeo GTV6 was introduced in 1980, taking the Giugiaro designed Alfetta GT fastback coupe and dropping in Alfa's Busso V6 engine with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection. The car received rave reviews from the motoring press and went on to have a successful career in Touring Car racing.

This car was built in 1982 and first registered 11th February 1983. It is thought to have been taken off the road in 1986 with approx. 17,000 miles on the clock and then placed in storage until around 2010. At this point a sympathetic recommissioning was started by the then owner. Work carried out at this point included new propshaft couplings fitted, new suspension bushes fitted, new rear wheel bearings fitted, and all suspension components removed, cleaned and painted.
The car was then sold to an Alfa Romeo specialist in April 2013 and the recommissioning completed over next two years. Work carried out included engine being removed from car and engine bay fully cleaned, cylinder heads removed to inspect condition of pistons/liners, timing belt replaced and converted to mechanical belt tensioner, new engine oil and filter, new air filter, new spark plugs, all fluids renewed, new gearbox mounts, new battery fitted, clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder replaced, brake pads replaced together with brake hoses and caliper seals as required, alloy wheels refurbished, new Toyo tyres (5 no) fitted, minor surface rust and other minor bodywork blemishes repaired due to storage damage (no welding was necessary). The car then had a full glass and interior out respray in original Alfa Grigio Chiaro AR748 (full photographic record available).

The car was then sold to the current owner in April 2015 with approx. 17,400 recorded miles. Whilst in his ownership the car has benefited from the following works carried out by an Alfa specialist; new front brake discs and nearside rear brake caliper fitted, new fuel pump, new rear exhaust section, regular servicing and MOTs.

The car is completely original, is in superb overall condition and drives very well. A fast road car with the renowned Alfa Romeo Busso V6 engine which provides plenty of power accompanied by a marvellous soundtrack!
