Hi, This is my GTV6 from '85, which I bought last July in England and drove home to the Netherlands. It's a GTV6 Monaco which was only sold between '83 and '85 in France. The wheels are 3-piece 17 inch Evolution (made in France in '93) with Pirelli P Zero Nero 235/40/17 tires.

nice car

do you know the specs of those wheels (width and offset) - am amazed they fit 235/40 - do they rub?

235/40/17 actually look quite small on the little GTV6. It's easy for large diameter rims to look a bit silly on the smaller Alfas, but you've done it very well.

Very good looking car!
Didn't know there were 3.0 Gtv6's other than those sold in South Africa.
Were these fuel injection?

Hi!

The Monaco series were a "concesionaire version" made from regular GTV6 2.5.
They are not official Alfa variants os special series.

They were made by adding a tiny vynil stripe thru the sides with "MONACO" lettering. A pair of MONACO stickers were added in the trunk door (left side) and to the front panel, over the headlights (left side too).

Engines and gearboxes were stock 2.5.... so this car had a 75 engine swap at some point in its life... (a check to the engine number will throw light...)

Interior were all in leather, incliding door panels and their tops and the gear knob.
A Blaupunkt New York autorario with separate power amplifier/equalizer were fitted too.

I've seen one of these in Portugal, french reg. Red with light grey stripe. Interior was fantastic, nicely done. Engine was 2.5. Stock Campagnolo wheels.
