Re: So, do I buy an Alfa 75?
ok...you asked, so im going to give you pearls here. buy a 3.0 75. a v6 75 is the most brilliant all round practical sports sedan in the world. the 2.0 engine is great, and they do handle fractionally better than the v6. BUT, the v6 is the one. there is no comparison really..the smoothness, the flexibility, the throttle response, the blood curdling induction noise, the utterly bullet proof mechanical reliability...get the picture? if these are the things you find important in a car, then the answer is clear cut.
the thing is, to buy a really good one, that has been repaired and serviced the way these cars deserve to be, and it will be the most glorious realiable, thrilling car you will ever own...this side of spending huge money on an exotic.
my 75 has 410000klms on the original engine, and it still go's and feels the way it did when i bought it 10 years ago, and i drive this thing like its stolen i kid you not. and i cannot kill it. its utterly staggering what i have dished out to my car, and it feels like its done 100k..and had an easy life, the build quality, and overall stature of a 75 is so missunderstood really......people have got no idea how great they are. i still get exited by driving mine to work everyday..i will never part with it! and i challenge any manufacturer, or model of any car, that can take a flogging like theses cars can, and still feel great 20 years later. a masterpiece? to say the least.
