So, having always had a love of all things Italian, and previously owned three Italian cars, I am currently deciding about the crowning glory of my Italian love affair and that is to purchase a GTV V6. My previous Italian driving experience started some 22 years ago when as 19 year old "wanna be" I purchased my Lancia Beta Coupe. I quickly fell in love with its great sound and handling and who could fail to be seduced by its fantastic looks. The next step 18 months later came in the guise of a metallic cherry red Fiat X19, when all my mates where driving their XR2's and 3i's there I was, roof off shades on, style pouring out of the quad exit Ansa exhaust system, oh what memories.......
Several years and 1 wife and child later I returned once again to the Italian stable and purchased a 147, ex Alfa head office car fully loaded with all the toys Connect Nav+ Bose, Blue leather, Winter Pack, Telephone etc etc ......... oh what joy!.
Unfortunately with an expanding family and house purchasing, the era of sensible motoring came upon me and for the last 8 years itís been just that ...sensible.
So here I am, house sorted, wife and kids content, is it time to don my shades
and slick back whatís left of my hair, and get behind the wheel of what I consider to be one of the best looking cars on the planet the GTV V6
Any thoughts and buying tips would be much appreciated - don't want to spend a fortune though, still got to put food on the table, and shoes on the wife
