New Alfa GT coupe replaces 156 GTA at a more sensible price
30 Jun 2004
ALFA ROMEO'S new GT coupe has arrived Down Under, brandishing a $10,000-lower pricetag than, similar performance to, and more equipment than the torque-steering 156 GTA sedan it effectively replaces here. With similarly compromised steering and suspension, however, this powerful front-driver will be the last of its kind before a new breed of front/all-pwheel drive performance Alfas begin to appear over coming years - notwithstanding the even-hotter, forthcoming GT GTA. As the new sports flagship for the Italian brand, its unique new styling and benchmark performance make GT much more than a two-door 156 - and well worth a look if cars like Nissan 350Z, Mazda RX-8, Chrysler Crossfire and BMW 3 Series coupe are your thing.
Model release date: 1 July 2004 to 1 June 2012
