    Thanks for resurrecting this thread.

    I’ve been looking for a superlative 84-86 GTV for years now. Red/tan strongly preferred, 100% original paint (or very close to it), low mileage, full history, no modifications. In other words, I’m looking for the best of the best, and I’m willing to pay for it.

    And I know that I’m looking for a unicorn, which is why I haven’t been able to find one.

    They are out there.. but yes, your specs are demanding. So many have been modified or unloved. Still - as prices go up, the good ones will come out of the woodwork as usual.. and the exceptional ones will emerge.
    Best of luck!

    I enjoy taking my GTV6 2.5L to a local road course one or twice per year.. and it never fails to be the only Alfa there, and the V6 never fails to get remarks about its amazing sound as I go through the gears down the straight.

    The owner of the Road and Track Callaway Test car asked me to find her a new home :)

    I thought I knew a bit about Alfa's, but this was off my radar COMPLETELY until crossing paths. What a cool car.

    Had the GTV6 out for a 200 mile Fall Foliage Fundraiser this last weekend. I shared it with other drivers of Miata, Lotus, Porsche, Camaro, Citroen, Maserati, Plymouth, BMWs... and the GTV6 got voted "Most Fun to Drive".

    Another great Frenchman Loubet video when he drove Alfa Romeo GTV6's and Milano's. What he did at the Tour de France in 1986 before the GTV6 was banned is amazing. The GTV6 was a great tarmac rally car.

    The entire original video from Gema racing. Nice V6 sound comparisons between the V6 2.5 and 3.0 motors and the not as good sounding Turbo. I like the higher pitch 2.5 motors sound best. They sound even better in the FIA Group A higher tuned state.

    Tour de Corse 1986 and the end of Group B. The Alfa GTV6 racing against these monsters is rather strange as it was basically a modified street car. Henri and Sergio lost their lives driving the Lancia during this one. The GTV6 finished 3 overall.
