Alfa Romeo's millennium GT
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.
