The Alfa Romeo 156 GTA has a speedo in the style of the original race-bred GTA. But unlike its ’60s namesake, a stripped-out version of the Giulia Sprint, the dial goes all the way to 300km/h. And rightly so.
The 156 GTA was an extremely exclusive high-performance sports car with the vehicles being hand assembled on a separate production line to the standard 156 models. It continues to be highly sought after by collectors as well as keen drivers due to its rarity, pedigree and 3.2 litre V6 250PS Busso-designed engine.
1,973 berlinas and 1,678 Sportwagons were built until the GTA production stopped in October 2005. Very few GTA were sold, with right-hand drive vehicles holding a premium over left-hand drive vehicles due to their rarity.
This particular vehicle is in outstanding original condition and is a credit to its current owner. It has been maintained to the highest standard by Perth Alfa Romeo specialists Autodelta and has recently had the all important cambelt service completed in January 2019 at 74,076kms. It is also fitted with the upgraded Q2 differential. The vehicle comes with both sets of keys and owners books with full service history from new. The owner still has the original factory radio that also comes with the car.
Very rarely does a vehicle in this condition with such low kilometers come on the market. It is well worth the premium over other higher kilometer examples and would suit a real Alfista or car collector looking to invest in a future classic.
