Chilling

Yellow GTV with quad pipes and Cup front wings on the M27 heading west near Southampton Airport tonight around 17:45.........private reg of "K44Y C" or similar.

I know one GTV V6 was factory painted as such and used to belong to a bloke in Southampton, he then sold it on to someone in Lee on Solent a couple of years ago.
Dunno if it was the factory painted car I saw tonight, as when I saw it last it had GTV plates on.

There is also a yellow GTV TS in the area, presumably a respray that I have seen around Totton in the past year or so.

Red GTV TS parked in Bournemouth on Sunday - opposite the Norwegian Wood cafe more or less.

It was seeing that car which prompted me to start searching for one, so if it ends up being financially ruinous I blame you!

Hi mate, welcome aboard the loony bus that is ALFAOWNER.COM

Maybe some Alfas "slip thro the net" and go to homes for the less-educated?.. i try not to be biased towards the beautiful GTV but they ARE very rare cars indeed, much rarer than the other alfas on the roads... trouble is, on the day you don't bother to wave or stick your head out the window and scare someone!... that will be the day someone comes on here saying"saw a lovely GTV cup yesterday in East Sussex, red with shaven-headed bloke driving...he didn't bother to respond"....typical!! grrrrrrrrr

I saw a red GTV this afternoon at the Christchurch A35 roundabout - only caught it from the front but it was a P1/P2 and probably a TS.

I gave it a big wave from my Spider as I pulled out in front of it, but nothing back... I think I heard they're not known to AO.

I'll change that if I can catch the owner

hello guys, don't worry about the not waving back thing - i get that most times, but then i wave like an epyleptic i get so excited by another spider...saw what i think was a red gtv cup on the bank holiday weekend flying down the sliproad at bristol - must be someone on here surely? If i wasn't sat in traffic i'd have followed you to provide some light spider-based harassment! sweet car though and fantastic noise. my light blue beast will be driving around putney and barnes this weekend, so if you see someone waving like a moron, that would be me! have good weekends!
