How much should I budget for decent V6?
I recently picked up a lovely 2.5 V6 156 which I am taking on a jaunt round Europe in September to raise money for charity.
This is the first 'proper' Alfa V6 I have driven and it has totally refired my passion for the marque.
Once I get back from the rally, nice as it is, I intend to sell the 156 and buy a GTV V6 as I fancy something even more hardcore, though am not a fan of the GTA. I figure given my lack of children I may as well indulge whilst I can afford to have two impractical cars in the household.
How much do you reckon I should budget for a sorted, reasonably low mileage GTV V6?
Aero kit is a must as are the 17" teles. Upgraded exhaust and Q2 also highly desirable.
Prices seem to have really come down lately. I guess no-one wants thirsty old V6 engines anymore. I am thinking £2,500 to £3,000 should bag me a nice one.
Any pointers and input from you crafty GTV veterans?
Luck is the residue of opportunity and design...
