Will the gta's actually be worth more much than the gt 3,2's? I love all of these, but the badge is only misleading and marketing. The A for Allegerita means lightened, and it's the heavyest of the bunch.. I suspect them to rise, and no doubt the last of the bussos have that going for them, but i don't expect it to go through the roof, as it's to compromised, especially in original form..

If one will it will have 10.000 miles on it, be in a collection, and will need a complete rebuild since not beeing driven.

Meanwhile i'll be driving mountain passes in southern europe every summer til it's done. Mini-Maser for pocketchange

The diesel GT's will become part bins for the others i suspect, as will the jts, all with worn cam-lobes..

GT 3.2 -04 Grigio Stromboli - Dark grey leather
86.000 km - Q2 - Wizard cat-back - Novitec Stradale+ - Eibach arb - Strutbrace

GT JTS Selespeed -04 Grigio Stromboli - Red leather
197.000 km - Ragazzon backbox

GTA's have different body work / seats etc
The GT looks the same as the rest of them. meaning visually it doesn't stand out.

Even though its near identical underneath.
There's not enough about it to make it stand out. That's the problem.

IMO anything with a Busso V6 will be sought after in the future, especially as manufacturers now are downsizing and adding turbos.

I don't think the Diesel or JTS GT's will ever be that sought after. They do the job but they lack much of the Alfa magic.

Unless it's raced at Le Mans I don't think any diesel will achieve "classic" status. Above remarks about 3.2 GTs are interesting. I think mine is still worth what I paid for it 3 years ago (not a lot), but it's still only done 60K and that only creeps up by 2K a year. That, and WAD service history (new clutch, Quaife diff, suspension). It'll be worth some good money at some time in the future, but whether I still own it then is another matter.

People expect sports cars to have petrol engines, so no, i can't see the diesel having any classic value

Classic cars are often a weekend toy, need to be something special like a V6 to hold the enthusiasts interest

The most expensive GT 3.2 I've ever seen on Autotrader has sold within a week. Low mileage (24,000), low number of owners and full history with the right spec. That's a sure sign of where the market is going.

Yeh, that one if genuine seems to have everything going for it, could be a shrewd investment if the mileage is kept down.

The best always tend to have a large premium attached, seeing as its that low at 24k would you be against putting miles on though for fear of harming its value ?
Still, if its used as a weekend car, it should remain low anyway
