Highly Modified 1982 Alfa Romeo GTV6

This is a highly modified GTV6. It's been modified with some of the best Alfa bits.

The engine is a 3.0 24 valve unit from a 164. The cams are from a 156 GTA, as are the intake runners. The transmission and clutch are from a Milano Platinum. The flywheel is from a Milano Verde... The list goes on and on.

What aren't genuine Alfa parts come from some of the best suppliers around. The suspension is from RS Racing. The rear anti-roll bar is from Shankle.

Everything attached to this car has been either modified, improved or upgraded to make it a better car.

The body has been modified too, and that's where I have a bit of a problem (although not much of one). In my eyes, the Alfetta GT / GTV6 body was a masterpiece. Really the only thing that needed changing - and only in North America - was the big 5 MPH bumpers required by US law. This car, with the Zender kit and 17" black wheels is a little over the top for my taste. If I had done the build - which I couldn't have, because I have neither the time or talent it takes to do something like this - I would have left the body basically stock. (But that's my personal taste and I'm pretty sure plenty of you disagree with me.)

By GTV6 standards, the seller wants huge money for this car ($25,000.00), but considering the work he's done to it, it's worth the price...

Wow, this literally does have everything on it. It's nice he worked out the little things like speedo and tach compatibility as well. I will leave the wheel and bodykit up to personal tastes, the only technical question in my mind is using a 270hp motor with the 4.10 box, seems like it would be well undergeared. I would have to drive it to know for sure though...

The shape sort of reminds me of a new Citroen C4 - beautiful!
