When we tested the 2-litre JTS GT it left us hungry for more. It at real potential and our eyes down the price list and on the GT 3.2 V6: one of the greatest engines of all time in the nose of one of the finest shapes on our today, underpinned by a sharp It must be hard to go wrong surely? We were itchy to out but could only hypothesise in the

Almost a year on and Alfa has come up trumps and dropped the car you see on my drive; a blood red GT with all-important 240bhp, 3.2-litre, V6 under the bonnet. Yum yum!

The looks haven’t been by the passage of time. It makes an TT look positively frumpy and stops bystanders in their wherever you go. Where this one is that the spectators have stopped and turned around they see you coming.

Such is the glory of the noise that V6 that it heralds the arrival of the GT some seconds it hones into view. eulogised about this engine before, but for the hard of we’ll do it once more.

You an engine is going to be good it looks so good. Pop the bonnet and drink it in. Appreciative oohs and are the norm from fellow heads and even those who no inclination towards the wonder of wheels will express appreciation. Turn the key and coos to giggles. It’s delightfully pure and clean, yet dirty and

Underway the V6 dominates proceedings in of providing not just motive but the soundtrack to drive to as well.

The V6 the JTS’s whip crack helm that feels light. In the V6 there is some steer evident under acceleration but the difference in pace is worth it. Slightly disappointing is the in the ride and handling balance; as if the extra weight has forced the into a compromise. I don’t bottoming out the lesser model’s spoiler at all; in the V6 I did it several on bumpy roads.

This is partly due to the long overhang, but there may be some to suspension settings that add to tendency.

Cross-country driving on roads is swifter than with lots of grip and no roll whatsoever. The brakes a little feel and the gearshift is a little long in throw but a car you can immerse yourself in the driving of.

roads, as long as they too bumpy – a feature will unsettle the V6 in the same way it did the JTS are a joy to drive thanks to a capable all the while accompanied by the gloriously machinations of the V6 up front. Surfaces of grip due to bumps or dampness do some torque steer, as some clumsy throttle but it isn’t tiresome.

Nor is covering big distances. I endured a ten battle with our lovely network in slow stop traffic and sub zero outside but sat ensconced in leather swathed ears soothed by the Bose and gentle hum of the engine. There no protests from the Alfa, no shunt or undue heat up in the tiresome traffic; in fact it a hardship at all.

At motorway cruising is quiet and effortless room for four adults a novelty in this class.

Overall the Alfa Romeo GT V6 is a car. Again, we’d driving enthusiasts towards the 350Z. but if the driving experience the be all and end all then the stunning good and beautiful sound track put the GT straight onto you shopping

For me it’s a better car than the TT and Chrysler Crossfire and is also to a BMW 3-series coupe, but it falls of the heights of the 350Z, but then so do other coupes, principally it can’t offer the same drive thrills. Factor in engine, and you have to on an emotional and you may just find it too seductive to but then you could put that in a skip and people would buy it!

I’d find it hard not to pay the over the JTS to have that V6; it the … looks so much fittingly than the four-pot, and the body the heart and soul it The missing ingredient is rear drive, something Alfa are to address in the near future.
