I am interested in getting a GTV with cloth interior.
I can see on autotrader in the UK that there are quite a few examples although they are all pre 2000 and high mileage.
Did alfa stop making the GTV with a cloth interior around that time? Or are they out there but do not come up for sale much(more desirable)?
Speaking to my local alfa dealer he said that the new remodelled GTV was not going to be offered with a cloth option. Why is this?
In my opinion leather seats wear worse than cloth and look too shiny and used too soon. Plus it is too cold most of the time in the UK and too sticky for the few days we get sunshine. That is unless the leather was available with a winter pack of heated seats?
I love my current 147 but yearn for something more sporty with a real classy history... otherwise the peageot 2.0 206 CC would have appealed to me ...
The cloth seats are actually nicer to sit in, in my opinion. The leather ones seem slightly higher.
I dunno why there's so few cloth-seats out there - the leather only came with the Lusso and that was £3-4000 more expensive at the time (leather seats being the only "Lusso" extra, as far as I can remember).
The GTV Lusso version had leather seats and climate control. The leather seats are recaro - industry standard in quality road/racing seats.
My GTV is a lusso as I think the leather look superb. However they do heat up nicely in the summer and are a little cold in the winter. When looking for my GTV I didn't come across any GTV's that weren't a lusso, so maybe they are in limited supply these days?
Actually to prove a couple of you wrong....mine has a cloth interior AND climate control and is apparently a standard model just called GTV 2.0 Twin Spark.....and yes I know all 2litres are twin sparks....but this is what it is called!
thanks for your help
I picked up my 2001 2.0 Twin Spark Turismo this morning - with a black cloth interior. The seats are great, I do not like leather and after viewing over 20 GTVs in the last 2 months I am glad I picked this one.
Drove it the 100miles home with a huge grin on my face
love it love it love it
