Ok, so this chap is quite articulate and perceptive, and you may remember I posted his review of the Fiat Ritmo Abarth 130TC before Christmas.

Now he has got his paws on a GTV6 2.5 in metallic grey and has found a mountain pass to enjoy it. And by jimny, it sounds and looks fabulous! His criticisms are well observed, but even with those in mind, the GTV6 still has a captivating sorcery to it that you can't help but fall for. Maybe it's its delicious good looks, or that bellowing bear of engine, or...well, he will tell you more about what makes this relatively underpowered car so captivating, and why it gets under you skin. (the translated sub-titles are a little bit hit and miss, but the sentiment is 100% clear :) )

Also, also, also...he is so right about the smell (profumo) of an Alfa of that era (sweetly fragrant), and the sound of the door closing - it is a very light thunk/latching noise.

I can't believe I sold my GTV6. What a t1t.

I would suggest that even if you don't like the GTV6, but if you wonder where your MiTo or Giulietta sups at its DNA source, it's worth watching this vid :)

Davide Cironi is the man! Just a week ago I watched all his "reviews" of Lancia Delta Integrale. The videos are in Italian, even not all of them with English subtitles, but he can still express his love for "real" cars the way that anyone with petrol in his veins can easily understand... He makes me want to buy every car he talks about :thumbup:
