The Alfa Romeo GTV coupe, which began production at the Milan plant in 1995, was designed to revive the tradition of two-door sport Alfa after a short break. The open version of the car was called Alfa Romeo Spider.
Work on the model began in the late 1980s, the Pininfarina design office was fully responsible for the appearance of the machine, and the Italians took the Fiat Tipo 2 front-wheel drive platform as the basis for the car's creation. There were four seats in the car's interior (the rear seats were "children's").
On the "Alfa Romeo GTV" was installed a four-cylinder engine in volume of 2.0 liters (150-165 hp), as well as engines V6 2.0 (with turbo-supercharging) and V6 3.0 with a power from 192 to 235 forces. The transmission could only be mechanical, five-speed or six-speed, depending on the version.
In 1998, the first restyling of the model was carried out: the exterior of the coupe remained practically unchanged, but the front panel in the cabin was thoroughly redrawn. In addition, Alfa Romeo GTV received a new base engine capacity of 1.8 liters and a capacity of 144 liters. from. In 2000, a gamma of power units was brought into compliance with the environmental standards of "Euro-3", and versions 1.8 and V6 2.0 disappeared from the model range. At the same time, the production of the coupe was moved from Milan to Turin.
