Alfa Romeo GT Coupe 3.2 V6

The 2006 Alfa Romeo GT Coupe beautifully combines a comprehensive range of safety systems with renowned engineering prowess. Power is delivered by a superlative powerplant embodied by an all-aluminum 3.2-liter 24-valve V6, allowing the new Alfa GT to reach the sixth gear at just 2,000 rpm, covering the o-62mph sprint in 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph. Power is transferred to the wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. Featuring revisions to damper, spring and anti-roll bar settings, the GT 3.2 V6 chassis is based on that of the 156 GTA. The speed-sensitive power assisted steering of the Alfa GT is lively and responsive as it has a rack that requires just 2.2 turns lock-to-lock. The active safety features include six airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners, as well as a fully integrated Fire Prevention System. While a sophisticated Vehicle Dynamic Control unit ensures cornering stability, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution is combined with ABS anti-lock braking over all four wheels. The compact dimensions and sporting lines are completed by the flexible interior which provides comfort for the driver and passengers and a 320 cubic decimeter luggage compartment into a flat load platform with an impressive 905 cubic decimeters of stowage space. The driving pleasure is also enhanced by the full leather interior together with the acoustic sophistication of a Bose Hi-Fi system with MP3 compatibility. The twin chromed exhausts, 17-inch alloy wheels and the sports suspension, further contribute to the sporty appearance of the car model.
