    The text and information are full of mistakes and inaccuracies. Pininfarina, not Pinnifarina. Also it was collaboration between Alfas own studio and Pininfarina. I do not think 18″ wheels were ever even an option, 16″ was. Article also complete forgets 2 engine variants available for the car, 2,0 V6 turbo and 3,0 V6 12V. First one aimed at Italian market as a means to avoid higher tax, and the second was the predicessor to the 24 valve engine.

    Sentence “Both the GTV and Spider are sports cars whereas the GTV is 2+2 coupe and the predecessor of Alfetta GTV coupe.” does not make any sense at all. Gtv and spider version are both 2+2 seaters.

    Please fix this article 🙂

    Ps. Saying that the Italians copied the design from Honda shows a complete lack of grey matter between ones ears…

  • why would an Italian car company make an Italian car rip off of a Japanese car that was made about 20 years before it? that honestly makes no sense. the honda integra also only wentt about 120 mph max, the alfa romeo gtv went about 205 so that helps prove that they didnt copy from a crapier car.
