The Press Car

The car was the first GTV6 imported to Australia by Alfa Romeo Australia in late 1981. It was pre Australian homologation (no compliance plate - not sure how they registered it) and one of the very early builds with the “split dash” and grey trim from the early series 2 Alfetta GTV’s. It was used by Alfa Australia as the press car and can be seen in the press reviews in 1982 including the two articlesbelow.

Upon finishing its role as a press car, the car went to Gulson’s Alfa Dealership in Canberra where it was readied for the 1982 Bathurst 1000.
