The Alfa Romeo GTV is small 2+2 coupe with distinctive styling.
First seen at the 1995 Geneva Motor Show along with its convertible
sibling, the Alfa Romeo Spider.
The GTV went into production a year later in 1996.
Engine options throughout the lifespan of the Alfa Romeo GTV
and Spider included 1.8 and 2.0 litre 16v Twin Spark engines,
a 2.0 litre V6 turbocharged
unit, and the top of the line 3.0 litre 24v V6 engine.
In 1998 the Alfa Romeo GTV and Spider underwent a face-lift
which included mild exterior cosmetic changes, a redesigned
interior and an optional 6 speed gearbox on the 3.0 litre V6
In 2003 a more comprehensive revision of the Alfa Romeo GTV
and Spider took place. The front end of the new car featured
a much deeper grille which emulated the grille found on the
Alfa Romeo 147 (first produced in 2000). A new 240 bhp 3.2 litre
V6 was also added to the engine line up.
In 2006 the GTV and the Spider were replaced by the Alfa Romeo
Brera and the convertible version, the Brera
