Re: 156 GTA with or without VDC?
I remember reading that Alfa couldn't get the right combination of sportiness and safety out of the VDC at the time they launched the 156GTA, so they decided to do without: the later 147GTA benefitted from the the extra few months they'd had to work on the problem, and so it then came with VDC. And by this time, the issue was settled in the public perception: 156GTA, no VDC; 147GTA, VDC, so they stuck with it.
