The Alfetta was the basis for the GTV, which became one of the most iconic coupes of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Earlier, smaller-engined models were badged as GT, with the GTV reserved for the range-topper.
It was, however, the GTV6 that grabbed the attention of performance enthusiasts, thanks to its 2.5-litre V6 engine. It won the European Touring Car Championship four times in succession and Andy Rouse took it to a BTCC championship in 1983. Classic and Sportscar magazine said it was “the best sounding engine this side of a Maserati V8″.
