True Italian flair, a work of art.
The fashion designer of interiors, this example has benefitted from the expensive Blue Style factory optional upgrade incorporating Momo trimmed white leather upholstery against blue fascia, trim and carpeting, (Code 728). The stunning sculptured Momo seats and door trim are swathed in near spotless white leather with a distinct lack of wear as you would expect from a car covering just 17,453 miles from new. Unashamed flamboyance throughout includes the bold Alfa Romeo lettering on the door sills and stylish driver inclined fascia with three pod central gauges showing time, fuel level and engine temperature. All controls and functions operate perfectly including the original stereo with CD changer and the ice-cold climate control. The carpets, floor mats and headlining are immaculate. An exceptional interior, preserved and unspoilt.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The flagship model, this GTV boasts the 3.0 V6 24V engine with plenty of Cuore Sportivo “Sporting Heart”. Specification includes a double overhead cam for each bank and Bosch Motronic ME 2.1 fuel injection to develop 220bhp and 270Nm of torque. The car accelerates 0-62mph in just 6.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 149mph with the engine beautifully smooth with an intoxicating V6 throat. The clean engine bay displays factory stickers throughout and peace of mind is offered with comprehensive history including regular cambelt changes. The five-speed manual gearbox is light and precise. This outstanding GTV is archetypal Alfa Romeo, a true driver’s car.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Fitted as standard to the GTV Lusso models, the Ph-2 Teardrop 16in alloys wheels are in remarkable order with no kerbing whatsoever and immaculate cross and serpent emblem centre caps. Matching premium Goodyear 205/50 R16 tyres have covered minimal miles and show masses of tread. The original space saver spare wheel with Alfa inscribed cover, jack and Alfa Romeo toolkit are all with the car. Brand new discs and pads have been fitted all-round in December 2023 and the stylish callipers still boast a vibrant Rosso Red colour.
Registered new on the 20th November 1998, the supplying Alfa Romeo Main Dealer was St. Leonards Motors in East Sussex. The first owner pampered the car for 21 years at which point the second and only further owner bought the car in November 2019 for £11,500. Having seen a stunning Imola Red BMW Z4M at KGF Classic Cars, the owner having enjoyed the GTV for four years could not resist a change and KGF Classic Cars are now very pleased to acquire this stunning low mileage example in exchange. With just 17,453 miles from new and cossetted care and maintenance throughout, this top of the range GTV looks, feels and performs impeccably.
Extensive Alfa Romeo dealer and marque specialist servicing has been carried out to include all routine cambelt changes. The most recent service, including air conditioning service was carried out at the Alfa Workshop in January 2023 at 16,398 miles with accompanying invoice for £810.90. The most recent cambelt and water pump change, again by the Alfa Workshop, was carried out in March 2022 at 15,898 miles and included many other routine maintenance work with supporting invoice for £2,089.88. A beautiful bespoke Alfa Romeo presentation folder holds a large file of invoices to illustrate the no-expense spared Alfa Romeo dealer and marque specialist maintenance. The original leather document wallet houses the stamped service booklet as well as every handbook, brochure and guide issued when new. Three original keys and the fobs are present as is the original red code card. This outstanding example requires nothing other than simply a new owner to appreciate the care and attention lavished by the previous keepers.
