Alfa celebrates with special GT

2010-09-01 09:19
Alfa Romeo celebrates its 100-year history with the (very) special GT Limited Edition collector's item.

Only 30 of the individually-numbered special models based on the Alfa GT 3.2 are destined for South Africa.

Designed by Bertone, the GT is powered by Alfa’s 176-kW 3.2-litre quadcam V6 capable of a 0 – 100 sprint time of 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 243 km/h.

Along with its powerplant, the GT Limited Edition also shares features such as ASR traction control and ESP stability control, remove central locking, satellite audio controls for the steering wheel, cruise control, rear park distance control and a Bose audio system with the “regular” GT 3.2.

However, the GT Limited Edition adds special 18-inch alloys with a five-spoke design, brake calipers painted red, new leather sports seats with contrasting red stitching, and metallic finishes for the mirrors, grille and door handles. 

Auto headlights and wipers, sports pedals, a sports instrument cluster and the Fiat Group’s innovative Blue&Me Bluetooth and media playing suite are also included on the special edition's specifications list.

The anniversary model costs the same at the standard 3.2, although the emissions tax that comes into effect on September 1 pushes the sticker price from R395 100 to R410 063.

As with all GTs, this collector’s item is sold with a three-year/60 000 km maintenance plan. Service intervals are 20 000 km.
