I love my Gta, but kind of wished they'd called it something else because it's not really a Gta, it's just the best Alfa could do at the time and they gave it the name Gta. I think it's sad what's happened to Alfa really, but they need to innovate rather than keep trading on their past glories.

I know they can't afford to and I know we're lucky they're still around in some form, but I personally think their time is gone. :(

Yes, don't forget the 2002 ETCC car (won the series of course!!) was named "156 GTA". This was lightened but used a heavily breathed on 2.0 TS engine. So the similarities between the race car and the roadgoing 156 GTA are very few. Unlike the original GTA, in which the "Stradale" versions were homologation versions of the race car.

Cheers,

Nigel
