Three Letters, One Icon
GTV stands for Gran Turismo Veloce, with veloce translating to “fast” in Italian. In 1965 the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce was introduced to the world. This model soon became highly regarded among motoring enthusiasts for its sport-focused character and superlative handling characteristics. The 1750 and 2000 models expanded the cubic capacity of the engine throughout the early 1970s while a limited-production convertible variant added top-down exhilaration.
1981 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT
The next evolution of the GTV name came with the introduction of the Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT. The Alfetta GTV went on to take numerous podiums on the European Touring Car Championship along with success on rally circuits across the globe during the 1980s.
1993 Alfa Romeo GTV Type 916
Introduced in 1993, the last model to wear the GTV badge was the Type 916 GTV and its two-door roadster sibling the Spider. Designed by Enrico Fumia at Pininfarina, the Type 916 was launched to reinvigorate the Alfa Romeo brand. Power came from an extensive lineup of 4-cylinder and V6 engines, with the 3.2-liter 24-valve V6 engine producing an impressive 240 horsepower and 213 lb-ft of torque.
2020 Alfa Romeo GTV Quadrifoglio
Alfa Romeo fans have been rejoicing following the announcement of the return of the GTV Quadrifoglio. Although official details have yet to be announced, the new GTV will likely share underpinnings and architecture with the popular Giulia sedan. Following that logic, the GTV is expected debut with standard rear-wheel drive and have an option for all-wheel drive.
Officials at Alfa Romeo have confirmed that the top-tier GTV Quadrifoglio will feature more than 600 horsepower, a significant boost from the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s 505 horsepower. This upgrade in performance will come as a result of a sophisticated hybrid-electric powertrain. Entry level versions will probably feature a turbocharged direct-injected 2.0-liter inline-four paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. A perfected 50:50 weight distribution should give the GTV razor-sharp handling and agility following corner exit.
