RARE 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV6 Callaway - Fully Restored! | eBay
Nice, Very nice but not worth £40k
The stuff of dreams....
That dash wasn't cool in 1986 and it most certainly isn't now.
And the $110,000 restoration seems to have included daubing the underside of the battery box with cheap underseal like you would to get your old Mini through its MOT.
The Americans have ruined it, but it's fixable. The period Zender kit is fine but doesn't work with those wheels, and the "gold cladding" on the fasteners is just naff bling and has nothing to do with "resisting heat".
Two turbos and it's no more powerful than a mildly tweaked NA 3.0 - sounds about right for a Callaway job. Should have gone to see Dawie De Villiers for a proper motor. I can picture Alex laughing his **** off when this turned up at his workshop.
Especially not in that shade of pink.
I think the whole thing looks a right dog's dinner!
"Tarts Handbag" springs to mind
Looks like it was magnetised , sent back in time and driven through Ripspeed circa 1986.
I'd have expected more power from a TT unit.
Sorry, I meant the GTV6 in general, not this particular example.
Oh dear... Another case of someone trying to recoup the ridiculous amount of money they have spent buying a modified car, then modifying it a bit more... It's just not a special car. And never will be.
If it was a special car, surely it would have been worth more in its original unmodified form?
Absolutely it would have been!
I like it ... It has character
A fully sorted GTV is about £15-20k nowadays, although some owners do a few tweaks like dropping in the 3.0 lump and transaxle from the 75.
A bit of too much effort I would say, and really not my taste. And price tag, "I believe I can fly...."
Why does it have split rear side windows?
So the forward part winds down fully, clearing the wheelarches
Look at the latest E-class coupe - same crummy compromise...
I see, thanks for that.
I don't think so.
A 1970's Giulia or Spider wouldn't make £20k so an 1980's GTV is going to be nowhere near that price bracket.
