Im after a GTV in grey or a Cup

Hey all.
Brera sold and now I can finally search for its replacement.
Im after a GTV V6 in the darker grey colour or a Cup. Even a GTA as I want a busso engine again!
Ive seen the 2 Cups on ebay but the mileage of one and the history of the other has put me off. I havent seen a grey one for a while, does anyone know the paint code and name of the grey?

I think they're Eclipse & Meteor grey, both very similar, for GTVs: http://www.bozhdynsky.com/alfa-romeo.../colour-codes/

Not sure about the Titanium/Titanio....only Ph1s, anyway grey V6 GTVs are rarer than Cups!

What approx budget have you set yourself please?

I have 10k to play with and it seems I can get a good GTV in the wrong colour or a 147 GTA. Current cups for sale are too expensive for me. Missed out on the one for under 9k few weeks ago.

Thanks for the link, I pretty sure the colour I saw and drooled at was "659/A Grigio Eclisse Met. "

How much for the supercharged GTV? Or shall I PM you?

Mine is an Eclipse Grey 659/A. Not for sale currently but might be persuaded to sell. Am finding that being 6'4" isn't an ideal fit with the car... PM me if you want some more details.
Cheers

Why not have the best of both worlds 659/A Grigio Eclisse Met GTV V6 with the Cup kit on it and Red Style interior

This is mine

Not for sale by the way but showing how good this colour combo is.

Cup 31 has just come on ebay. It was only for sale last summer but it does seem to have loads done on it since. Funny how people buy these cars with the best intentions then realise they don't use them.

I made an offer matching my budget but was more a hopefull punt that anything else. Looks a lovely car. I think I'm priced out of the current cups for sale. I would rather buy these cars before all the work was done. I need something to tinker with.

GTV Cup 131

I saw Cup 031 not that long ago at Autolusso South when I was there with No.131 and GT Paddy's Spider.

It was a nice looking car. He was considering selling it then, so I guess he's made his mind up to list it.

I think this is the pic he was referring to me about when I was speaking to him. I may have a Cup in a weeks time

Congratulations! Depending whereabouts you are in London maybe you want to come to this breakfast meet (30th July Breakfast Run)? I'm going in my Passat but two other Cups should be there.

Yes, you'd be more than welcome at the Breakfast Meet on the 30th. As is everyone else.

A6's GTV on Detailing World does look amazing.

It's an epoxy resin floor 5mm screed so it's perfectly flat. Very good but does scratch easy annoyingly

I'll be in the wife's X6 as I'll need the space to cart purchases away. No point going in the Alfa unless Im buying a small pot of wax I'll need the big boot.
