Alfa Romeo GTV


Both cars were designed by Pininfarina. It is a typical Italian design, with the Alfa Romeo grill with the pair of lights on each side recalling the 1750 GTV of the late 1960s and 1970s. It has a wedge shape which is in keeping with traditional Alfa Sports design. The back is “cut-off”, creating a sharp, aggressive look. The car is very low slung and entering and exiting the car is very similar to that of a Ferrari: difficult. The design has been rebuked by tall drivers that the windscreen is too low. The Spider shares all of these traits with the GTV except for the cut-off back, here the rear is rounded, reminiscent of Lamborghini rear design.

The Spider featured a folding soft-top with five hoop frame, which completely disappears from sight under a flush fitting cover. An electric folding mechanism is fitted on some versions. As would be expected the GTV has a much more rigid chassis, although considerable work was done to ensure that the Spider does not suffer from the traditional convertible chassis problems.

In addition the stock choice of wheels and tires are considered by some to be too small for the chassis design. A stock configuration of 16 inch wheels and 205 sized tires lie too deep in the mudsills, appearing mismatched to the width of the car. A factory option of 17 inch wheels with 225 tires is an improvement, as are after market 18 inch wheels with wider tires and spacers still.
