My impressions of driving a 3ltr V6
I had the good fortune yesterday of having the oportunity to drive a GTV 3.0 V6 and i thought id share some opinions. It is a Phase 2 with a light weight flywheel, polybushes, and a Q2.
I did nt find the engine as loud as i was expecting but with the windows open and i bit of throttle is was good.
The handling was just as good as my 2.0 TS around the corners and not heavy as people say (could be down to the Q2).
The straightline speed was biblical, but on a twisty bumpy country lane i do feel the handling was jumpy at the back compared with my non polybush TS.
Two reasons why im not going to buy one at the moment..........
1. Love my TS too much and know it has a top mechanical history.
2. I want to live a little longer and i know with the 3.0 V6 i would expire in a tree like off road mess.
