GTV 2.0 TS Lusso

Saw a GTV in a car park in Bath on Wednesday surrounded by 4 people taking pictures from every angle... it was mine! Stomach dropped as I thought someone had hit it and were taking photos for insurance or something. Went over to see what was going on and it was 4 yanks taking pictures to show their uncle who loves them... apparently they don't see many in the states... phew

Nice when that happens. Under the bonnet of mine months ago at 2am(ish) and an American guy walks over and starts chatting about his 75 he had. Stood chatting until the birds started to sing!!

Saw a silver GTV - possibly a cup, couldn't quite tell as it was at ten to one this morning leaving the station car park in Princes Risborough!

Nice surprise

Not a Cup. UK ones are exclusively Red.

That is, I grant you, a possibility but I am sure you will agree a very unlikely one. I have never seen a Euro Cup in the UK have you?

Very true and I agree very unlikely. But I've never seen an alfa 8C in the flesh either but I'm sure they exist too here !

Ok, lets go with 'A GTV with a spoiler that made it look like a cup'. Sorry, not too clued up on all the variants!

Didn't mean to offend.
FYI a rear spoiler was on most variants just an optional extra at new. You can see a 2.0TS or a 3.0V6 with a rear spoiler and at first glance they look identical. The only exterior difference is the inclusion of a air intake on the front left hand side of the front bumper for 3.0V6.
A Cup however is a limited edition of just 155 cars in the UK. All red, all 3.0v6 and with full body kits (rear spoiler, front spoiler and side skirts) shinier wheels and a special cloth/leather interior. In Europe Cups were also a limited edition but silver with the full body kit etc. They may have been exclusively 2.0 but I am not 100% sure on that.

Oh no offense taken - you'll have to go a long way to offend me

You're probably on the money there with a bit added on - would make sense if they only arrived on our shores in red, and only 155 of them at that!

Saw a blue V reg V6 GTV drive past me on Senwick Road, Wellingborough @ 17.40 ish as I was walking down the road - was literally thinking about the possibility of getting a V6, so I'll take seeing this one as a sign!

Red P1 Spider with a luggage rack and trunk on the boot - Monday evening on teh M25 anti clock - came off at South Mimms. Unfortunately on the back of a recovery truck.

It over took me (yes a recovery truck..) as I was driving a Nissan pickup with the remains of a scrapped Yamaha XJ550 on the back..

The train :(

Black Gtv registration T 12 GTV just outside the Ladies Mile pub in Patcham (Brighton) this evening.

I was catching Derek Jameson (a bus), so didn't see if it was a 2.0 or 3.0

PM me if it's for sale!

Having just checked the Cup list (it does come in handy, Clive!) it appears it is No.34 and belongs to a chap called Ron up in Cumbria

I have seen 3 spiders today. 2 on the m25 between Dartford and the m20. 1 was a red 2009, 1 silver about the same age. And a 1999 silver super on seven mile lane this afternoon. Happy days

Darling, it was me!
You're very observant about the vents. It's a Ph 2 2.0TS, so why should it have vents - it doesn't have any other form of body kit? But I like its colour, wheels, roll over bars, cloth seats and manual hood.
