I'm selling this Cup and have to reply to this because if I read the thread myself I wouldnt even contemplate viewing the car, which would be a real shame.
I have to completely disagree with Stuarts comments about the paintwork. Its his opinion, he's entitled to it, but I think he's outrageous to say that it has virtually no shine. If I read this thread I'd be expecting to see one of those flat matt Alfa red paintjobs, and nothing could be further from the truth. First and foremost is the price of the car, and the deal I made Stuart is not extortionate by any stretch, £3500. After speaking to Stuart, I don't think he'd be happy with anything that wasn't pretty much concours and thats his perogative as a buyer, but you won't find a Cup at this price for that money.
Are Cups worth the extra? Whose to say, but they hold their money better and will probably increase over the coming years. At £3500 too with a full service history and 78,000 miles on the clock its not a great deal more over some standard GTV's of the same year, in fact, I've seen plenty of standard V6's selling for more.
The car is currently on pistonheads (advertised at £4500) where you can see the pictures for yourself to give you an indication of the paint. Its not showroom condition but its pretty good and not at all like its being described here, imo.
Theres a video of the car on youtube too, taken a couple of weeks ago Alfa Romeo GTV Cup For Sale - YouTube
I would post the advert here but I need to up my post count...
I'll happily send more photos to anyone interested. £3500, no offers.
