That is stunning. Love the GT's and the 3.2's sound incredible with a Ragazzon exhaust, for me the fuel consumption just didn't match the on paper performance of them - maybe I should have tried one though? How do you find the peformance OP and what do you have to compare it against?

Then again who cares about performance when it looks like that!!! wow.

Thanks, it does sound incredible smile
The fuel consumption is on average about the same as my last car, Audi TT 3.2 - i'd say the Alfa is more economical on a long motorway run but uses more during short journeys, i'm getting 25mpg with mostly short runs.
It is quick enough for me but not super fast, i know there are quicker cars in the same bracket but the exhaust note and the Italian styling more than make up for that, for me.

A beautiful car and a very nice list of upgrades. I had a 1.9 JTD a few years back and it was a cracking car.

I noticed the Novitec lip spoiler and the ride height just from the picture - just the right amount of visual aggression without being ostentatious. The standard ride height looks pants on these, though I recall them being slightly lower in 3.2 guise than the other versions.

25mpg average is pretty good also I reckon. My 370z returns me just over 20, so you're about in the right zone for MPG vs performance I think!

I also have a 2.5 V6 156 with a Supersprint exhaust and it sounds incredible, so your GT must sound insane with the Ragazzon and other breathing goodies.

Very very nice car.

I have a GT myself, but "only" the 2.0JTS.

IMO still one of the best looking coupes around.

Too bad they didnt go through with the Droptop and chose the Brera Spider instead.

Very nice, Stombali grey? I have a 159 in this colour and pictures never do it justice.

Beautiful car smile This is my favorite modern alfa for sure. I want one and i did already test drive one stunning example. It was black with 2.0 jts engine but sadly someone was faster than i was.... I know that busso engine is lovely, but i can't afford to run two six cylinder car at the moment so 2.0 jts is my choice. Best thing in GT is that (well, looks obviously) it is so balanced steer. Everything is so well balanced, throttle input, steering, chassis and so on...

Great car op beer
