Lot 133 - 1999 Alfa Romeo GTV
|Odometer reading||57,957 miles|
|Result||Sold - £2,520|
The Alfa Romeo Gran Turismo Veloce (GTV) designed by Enrico Fumia at Pininfarina was planned to re-establish the sporty coupé tradition of Alfa Romeo for the 1990s. After the Fiat CEO accepted the design, Alfa Romeo Centro Stile was responsible for the completion of the detail work and also for the design of the interiors as Pininfarina's proposal was not accepted. A typical Italian design, low-slung, wedge-shaped with a low nose and high kicked up tail or 'Kamm tail' gave improved aerodynamics and, at its launch, many journalists commented that Alfa had improved the overall build quality considerably and that it came very close to equaling its German rivals. The GTV was indeed favourably received by the written press, winning awards such as Autocar Magazine's '1995 Car of the Year', Car Magazine's 'Best Designed Car' and in 1995 was awarded 'The World's most Beautiful Automobile' award.
Presented in silver with black leather interior, this one owner from new Alfa Romeo 916 GTV, with just 57,957 miles, has an unsurprisingly good history; a comprehensive service file including a full, handwritten log of the car's history and every MoT from new can be found with the car and in this fabulous condition, we would safely say this has future classic potential.
