Had another thought about the price of the new GT edition. Yes, it's an old design so has to be sold cheaper than the competition. So what is the competition exactly? There's not much in this market and all the ones that occur to me are German - the Scirocco, the 3-series Coupe and the A5. Now I looked closely at the Scirocco before buying my GT and new ones start at about £20K, but to get one with anything like the kit of this GT you're at £25K (items such as leather are 4-figure options on the Scirocco). My previous car was in fact a 320d Coupe and there is nothing between the GT and the 3-series Coupe for interior room so we aren't comparing cars from different classes. The A5 is sized similarly - both are bigger than the GT on the outside but little different inside (a lot of their extra length goes in the boot and neither is a hatchback so that boot space is hard to use, and the BM wastes space to accommodate a longitudinal 6-cylinder). The starting price for both these is close to £25K and with the equipment of this GT you're looking close to £30K. So, I'm drawn to the surprising conclusion that Alfa has in fact priced this quite reasonably. The price does reflect the older design and if, like most people here, you like the style of the Alfa, you'll go for it because nothing touches it at this price.
