In Summary I thought the Brera a poor replacement for the GTV which is ageing much better.
Well I loved my GTV which I had for 5 years but got shot of it for a Brera and am very glad I did.
I'll always love the GTV, and sure the GT was a great car for its generation, but the Brera is much better built, much comfier ride, more low down torque, much more reliable, and it seems 99% of people think its stunning, but fair enough that's down to individual taste.
However, if you are suggest that the rear seats in the Brera are less use than those in the GTV - well that's absolutely bonkers IMO. There's a bit more room in the back and a huge boot in the Brera. I've had 4 x 6 foot passengers in the Brera!
Front and back of the GTV do still look great despite the age but the side view... well it looks really old-fashioned to me now, the slash down the side looks like someone meant to make a Spider but then forgot to cut the roof off.
If the GT floats your boat then go for it, though the build quality and comfort aren't like the new gen cars and the interior seems pretty dull and old to me by comparison. Still, beter than most other marques!
