Some say to be a true petrolhead, you must owned an Alfa Romeo at time in your life. never owned one, class myself as a bona petrolhead. I have however, for a Fiat and Alfa Romeo for nearly a decade can appreciate the without having to make the of buying one.

However, now my remaining at Alfa are fading due to a decision to move on, I thought get a couple of road tests in

Alfa Romeos remain one of my passion ever since I was a My first toy car was an Alfasud Sprint and I it.

The first cars I really an interest in were Alfas and it is more than anything pretty much cememted my with Italian motors.

One of my Alfas of recent years is the yet discreet Alfa GT, which in 2004 ended production this year. A sleek, and understated coupe that is a four seater and has a fairly sized boot. But it#8217;s a coupe and an Alfa, so really the side of it means as much to me as a from Bono. What is is what it looks like, it sounds like and what it like.

Engine choices new were a choice of 1.8 or 2.0 petrol fours, the glorious 3.2 V6 petrol and a 1.9 diesel.

So let#8217;s get started with the I will accept no arguments it is a desperately pretty thing. the front, side and rear I#8217;m struggling to find a on this car that I do not like Same thing with the Open the pillarless doors and you are met hugging leather sports and a wrap around dashboard classic hooded dials.

I#8217;ve driven about 40 or so GTs and driven all the engine choices but today I#8217;m driving the all-rounder in the range. That be the 1.9 diesel lump. The thoughts of a Alfa, once thought to be is now common place with the Group producing some of the diesel engines in the business. particular unit is well to the GT and with 170bhp on tap provides amounts of performance, pull and

In fact performs better the four-cylinder petrol lumps. also the pick up of the bunch for the driving experience. Based on the Alfa 156 chassis, handling is neutral and predictable with a turn in from the sharp set up.

Later models which had the Q2 slip diff, as fitted to car, is certainly an improvement earlier models providing far traction whilst ploughing on in the

So, we#8217;ve established the 1.9JTD is the all round model in the GT range. It is, the model I#8217;m least to pick. I don#8217;t mind per se, but not in an Alfa sports coupe.

The car I drove literally had more than Mothercare. There are slight irritations that put most people off in no time, but not me. It is an and Alfas never are perfect, and nor do I want them to be.

However, me a 3.2 V6 GT finished in Alfa red and you are getting as to perfect for me. A glorious sight and if you can hear the engine above the from the dashboard. And the parcel
