156 v6 'Big Grin'.
Hi all,i took my newly aquired 156 v6 for a spin yesterday and was most impressed! I am so used to driving a mercedes vito turbo diesel van with lots of low end torque but it isn't particularly quick on accelaration! The Alfa on the other hand is a completely different animal.It's so docile at low revs this car could be driven round town with no problems at all.I initially thought there wasn't anything special with it's acceleration but at about 4500 rpm you could tell something was about to happen,at 4800 it did! The engine suddenly changed from being a lamb into a wolf - growling it's way to 7000 rpm in no time at all.When i arrived home for dinner yesterday evening after my little spin ,it took me several minutes to lose my ear to ear grin before i could begin eating!
