The Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV6 was produced from 1980 to 1987, although the four cylinder Alfetta GT was in production from 1974.

The Alfetta GTV6 and GT were built on the Alfetta saloon platform. The styling of both the GTV6 and GT was carried out by Giorgetto Giugiaro and previewed a sharper design style than previous Alfa Romeo models.

The Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV6 was powered by a fuel-injected overhead camshaft 2.5 litre V6 which developed 160 bhp and 157 ft/lbs of torque @ 4000 rpm. Not only did this engine give the GTV6 a 130 mph top speed, it also provided a sublime engine note when revved. The engine was so good in fact that revised and updated versions were used in various Alfa models for another 20 years. The transmission of the Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV6 was handled by a rear-mounted 5-speed manual gearbox driving the rear wheels.

The handling of the Alfa Romeo GTV6 also benefited from improvements to the suspension system and bigger wheels. Visually the GTV6 was superior to the GT with an enhanced interior package and exterior trim.

The Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV6 is still popular amongst collectors and enthusiasts despite its reputation for rust corrosion.
