A few GTV Questions from a newcomer

Hello mates (and lassies)
As I am to buy an alfa I am going through the various models. I need to tell you I have fallen in love with the A156 for various reasons, but when two days ago I got introduced to a GTV I thought "I need one of these".. I did a little market research here in Greece, and found some GTVs, but this generated a few questions..so any help and advice is much appreciated.
1. What was the last year of the GTV production?
2. Seems to me that a lot of the 2.0 lt engine ones where turbos. Was that an option by AR or a common upgrade practice?
3. I found a 2002 2.0lt with 200 bhp(claimed). Is this normal? I thought the 2000cc where in the 150ish margin. I only had a look at some pics as no time to get to where the car is, and I cant see a turbo fitted.

I am sorry if my questions seems trivial or stupid, but the price of used cars here in Greece is nothing like in the UK, where I had bought my good old Escort for 1000 quid and I spent 6 years with it.
Most of the GTVs here are in the range of 8-15K quid

Re: A few GTV Questions from a newcomer

The 2.0 turbo is a V6 turbo, produced to circumnavigate tax laws in Italy, and does indeed produce about 200 bhp.

There is also a 2.0 litre twin spark (later JTS) which are 4 cylinder engines and produce 150 or 155 bhp depending on year.

In addition there is a 3.0 litre (later 3.2 litre) V6 modle producing about 220 bhp.

Hope this helps

yep! gary is correct with the figures! the turbo is hidden below the left side of the engine, you need to take out the front bumper to see and fix it

P2 GTV 3.0

Re: A few GTV Questions from a newcomer

In UK the only turbos are private imports and all were originally LHD.

The last facelifted V6s (3.2 litre) were 240 or 250 bhp - essentially same as the 147 & 156GTAs. Production ceased about 2yrs ago I think... Possibly the only V6 you get in Greece is the 2.0 turbo but I may be wrong.
