Alfa Romeo GTV History
To begin with the Alfa Romeo GTV was only available as a 2.0L and was first produced in 1994; the year after the Spider was introduced. The first GTV went on sale in 1995 and was well received by the general public. The 3.0L engine became available for the GTV in 1997 with some exterior and interior changes as well. There was a facelift to the vehicle in 1998 with changes to the grille, interior and a new 1.8L engine was available. The engines were modified in 2000 to meet the Euro3 emissions standards. There was another facelift in 2003, redesigning the front end and some other minor changes. Production ended in 2004 and was replaced with the Alfa Romeo Brera.
The Alfa Romeo GTV was available in 1.8, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.2L petrol engines. The smaller 1.8 and 2.0L engines are the more economical, offering up to 30mpg which is not too bad for a car of this class.
