Alfa Romeo's millennium GT

2010-09-10 11:38
In celebration of Alfa Romeo’s 100-year history, during which period more than 70 models have been created, the Italian company will release a special version of the Alfa Romeo GT 3.2: the GT Limited Edition.

Only 30 of these Bertone-designed cars are destined for South Africa, each one numbered.

At  its heart is Alfa’s 176kW 3.2-litre quadcam V6 which, the automaker says, will catapult the GT to 100km/h in 6.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 243km/h, while maintaining a (claimed) combined fuel consumption figure of 12.4 l/100km.

Some of the highlights that the GT Limited Edition shares with the standard GT 3.2-litre:
•    Six airbags
•    ABS with EBD
•    Traction control (ASR) and Stability Control (ESP)
•    Remote central locking
•    Fully adjustable steering wheel with remote audio controls
•    Trip computer
•    Ski tunnel
•    Front armrest with recess
•    Dual-zone climate control
•    Cruise control
•    Rear PDC
•    Front passenger seat height adjustment
•    Bose Hi-Fi system

The GT Limited Edition extras:
•    18" “Limited Edition” five-spoked alloy rims
•    Sports leather seats with red stitching (leather seats are standard on the normal 3.2 but the design is new for the LE)
•    Blue&Me (hands-free Bluetooth, media player with USB port and voice commands)
•    Red brake calipers
•    Satin metallic finish mirrors, grille and door releases
•    Visibility pack (auto headlights and wipers)
•    Internal pack (aluminium pedals and sports instrument cluster)

The car is available at the same sticker price as the standard 3.2 – R395 100 (including VAT, excluding Co2 emissions tax), R410 063 including emissions tax.

As with the rest of the GT range, the Alfa Romeo GT Limited Edition comes with a three-year or 60 000km maintenance plan and 20 000km service intervals.
