A thirsty 147

Busso 2.0 V6

I really like this engine - not too big, very powerful, very rare V6 in 2 liter range...

Talking of newer Alfas, I would definitely go for this one in 166, as well as in GTV or Spider... Kind of a sexy engine I think V6 Busso + Turbo equals lots of fun which is quite easier to insure.

I know that UK market didnt have much of these - not in 166, what about GTV?

And, I know its probably to some market research and costs calculations, but I really regret not seeing this engine being put in 147, maybe around 180-190 bhp. It would have been a really distinctive feature for 147, unique in the Golf-class.

Also, no reason not to put it 156 - it could have been an alternative to 2.5, in turbo manner.

So, what do you think of this engine? I find it very good.

Remember it is only a 12v engine and it only exists to get under a 2L tax bracket that made the 3.0V6 a costly option in some parts of mainland Europe.

166 2.5 V6 Lusso

Chilling

I remember being in Chile around 1996/97 and seeing a GTV with V6 Turbo ...i was soo jealous and have never heard anything about their characteristics or sound. Never sold in rhd as far as i know, but what an interesting project for someone with oily hands !
Love to hear from someone with a 2.0 V6T or has anyone on here turbo charged a normal v6?
