The V6 in the GTs (and the 166) were the last 'proper' Alfa Romeo engines - built in the Arese plant. Production ended in 2005 with a final stock of 5,000 to be put into future GT and 166.

The newer V6 Alfa Romeos (Brera/159) have a General Motors block with Alfa Romeo cylinders.

I would be interested to know how many V6 GTs made it into the UK though, they seem to be a relatively rare beast.

Brera V6

I've never seen another one in Ireland (except for a UK reg one). I think there was red one for sale on carzone for a while, and Alasta may have sold one or more. Saw a black one in Australia!

No worries, it's defiantly an interesting engine - I really can't get enough of the sound (although that's likely just as much to do with the exhaust). The newer Alfa V6s just don't sound the same.

I was chatting to another customer at the dealers over the weekend about it, he's coming back from a V6 Brera to an (older) V6 GT, his comparisons between the two were very insightful and having driven both, I'd take the GT any day.

Been looking for an answer to the same question and found the following after numerous Google searches:

447 GT 3.2’s officially imported by Alfa Romeo UK between 2004 and 2008

There were probably some more imported privately from abroad but hope this helps.

Would love to find one to follow on from the blackline, but they're a pretty rare beast

I've got one. But it's not for sale. I know of another locally - that leaves 445 unaccounted for

Very insightful but i thought the last V6 GT was sold in 2007 and registered on an 07 plate

A guy i met recently at an Alfa meet had an Autodelta V6 GT apparently the last V6 sold, that was an 07 plate.

Unless someone knows different..

Less than 500 were sold in the uk. Rare, will become more of a classic than the GTA.

I have the 55 plate Dijon blue metallic one Autolusso had in the summer. It's had a full engine rebuild and mechanically sound. 47k on the clock. Couldn't resist chopping the 159 in for it. I negotiated down and eventually threw 9 grand at it. The engine is a masterpiece. I'm living with the slightly older feel of the car for the V6 and the styling- it's starting to look even better now as it ages.

I will hold on to it as it is becoming quite rare. Is it a potential classic?

I doubt it will be more classic than a GTA eventually as the GTAs are rarer and visually different from the smaller engined varieties. But both are appreciating and both are going to be well sought after in the future.

A quick check on How Many Left shows 339 x GT V6 registered & taxed, 40 x GT V6 registered & SORNd. Also (weirdly) 7 x GT Lusso V6 registered & taxed, 1 x GT Lusso V6 registered & SORNd. 346 on the road, 41 parked up. I guess this doesn't include dealer stock which is neither taxed nor on a SORN.

156 GTA - 221 taxed, 66 SORN (presumably includes Sportwagons)
156 GTA Selespeed - 8 taxed, 3 SORN

147 GTA - 264 taxed, 51 SORN

I'm sure we worked out years ago that the GT 3.2V6 was the most common of all the old 3.2V6 cars.

So - if I'm reading that correctly - the GT 3.2 is actually rarer (by numbers produced) than the GTAs?

I am curious as to whether the discrepancy in current values between the 147 GTA and the GT 3.2 will even out? At the moment, the 147 GTA appears to be commanding higher prices the GT 3.2.

However, I also notice a number of these higher priced cars are not exactly being snapped up. Are the owners being a little optimistic?
