turbo Alfetta GTV6

Post by IndianaJones » Mon 26 Oct 2015, 07:53

Found something interesting, which I did not know about…

According to Wikipedia: “South Africa was one of two markets to have a turbocharged GTV6, with a Garrett turbocharger and a NACA intake. An estimated 750 were assembled before all production ceased in 1986.”
Turbocharged GTV6’s from the factory, and 750 built, is this true?

I can believe that there might have been GTV6’s turbocharged by Alpine Developments, like is suggested in this advertisement, only it is a 2.0L…

And I do know the Alfa Super 2.0L Turbo was available from the factory at the same time, and it made more power and torque than even the GTV6 3.0L

That Wikipedia info is very optimistic. Maybe 750 V6 GTV's were built in total.

Only know about the 2000 Super with turbo.

There could have been a couple of GTV6's done by Alpine. They did put a turbo on just about anything.

1971 Fiat 124 BC Coupe
1975 Fiat 132 GLS

Never heard or seen of a factory GTV6 turbo in SA. Dawie de Villiers did do some turbo conversions back in the day.
