Default New Alfa Romeo GTV: everything you need to know





Quote:
► Meet the new Alfa Romeo GTV
► A famous Alfa badge returns
► Artist's impressions, specs and more

A new Alfa Romeo GTV will arrive in 2021, the company has confirmed, and we've got updated details on the new two-door coupe that revives a much-loved Italian nameplate. Read on for our essential briefing on this long-awaited Alfa.

The new GTV will be based on the 'Giorgio' platform already used to good effect on the Giulia saloon and Stelvio crossover, dressed here in a desirable two-door bodyshell depicted in our artist's impressions by Andrei Avarvarii.





When can I buy the new Alfa Romeo GTV?

Expect to see the new coupe - essentially a two-door Giulia sports car - in showrooms by 2021, according to our sources. It will launch first as a coupe, with a spider convertible due some 18 months later in 2022/23.

The new 2021 Alfa Romeo GTV artist's impression

The new Alfa GTV will fit under the bespoke, carbonfibre-bodied Alfa Romeo 8C, also confirmed for production. Where the 8C is a limited-edition, super sports car, the GTV will roll off the regular production line.

As our renderings suggest, it will be a front-engined four-seater, with just enough space in the rear to make sure it's not labelled a 2+2. Think Italian rival to the BMW 4-series, Audi A5 and Mercedes C-class Coupe.

New GTV engines, specs

It will surprise precisely nobody to learn that the new Alfa Romeo GTV will use powertrains already seen elsewhere in the FCA range. The 2.9-litre V6 already used to devastating effect in the Giulia Quadrifoglio will make another appearance, although here it is hybridised in the range-topping halo model.

CAR magazine's sources suggest the V6's output will be some 460bhp in the GTV, matched to an electric motor sandwiched between the V6 and transmission to deliver a total system output of 530bhp - and brief bursts up to 600bhp+. Conversely, an electric range of just 30 miles will be available when running in silent EV mode.

Alfa Romeo GTV confirmed in FCA presentation in summer 2018

This reflects the official confirmation in summer 2018 by then-CEO Sergio Marchionne in a major product announcement, in which he revealed the GTV would return as a range-topper with a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. Sadly a few short weeks after this summit, Marchionne passed away.

Note also the confirmation that the new sports car will come with 50:50 weight distribution. The new 2021 Alfa GTV should be a much better steer than the pretty but ponderous last GTV, which was front-wheel drive and lacked precision, according to our road testers.

Lower-powered, cheaper GTV models will be available too; last time round there was a choice of V6 or Twin Spark four-cylinder engines. Expect lower-rung GTVs to come with rear-wheel drive, rather than AWD.

Are we talking about in terms of looks because their reliability sucks balls.

Like the Giulia, they released the Quadrofoglio 1st, and then trickled down to where we are now with a multitude of options. I hope they do the same with this car (but in the same year).

That car is simply stunning.

I really like my Giulia and zero problems to date @ 11k mi. No other car has the road feel and handing I have ever driven around town. I do wish for a Manual and a 2 door Giula.

If you're "lucky" and get an unreliable one, it will be like owning two cars. You just don't know which one you will be driving any given moment.

Jealous! Only Alfa I've driven was a rental 156 diesel. The manual and brakes sucked, and it smelled like cigarettes, but engine sounded nice.

If I were in the market for a luxury car it would be a Giulia for sure.

When I was driving my 2017 Civic and all the dashboard lights went out, I had to check the badge on the steering wheel.

Very cool car. How bad has the depreciation been on the Giulia? One of these CPO could be a good deal if they are reliable.

Alfa and Fiat numbers pretty dismal. I think if slowing economy they might pull out totally.

That side profile screams Hyundai Genesis coupe.


Have we come full circle now where companies are copying Hyundais designs copied from other companies?


This is some XZibitception ****.
