14. Alfa Romeo GTV6
Jeremy Clarkson once said that you are not a car enthusiast if you never owned an Alfa Romeo. As always, he is overreacting, but owning a GTV6 is highly recommended. The Tipo 105 successor was the coupe version of the Alfetta, which was introduced in the late ’70s. This car (chassis code 116) had very advanced construction and suspension and featured several interesting details. First, it had a transaxle gearbox, which vastly improved weight distribution, thus handling. Second, it had a De Dion type rear axle, which helped to corner and driving dynamics. With a 2.5-liter V6 engine in the front, the GTV6 delivered some 160-170 HP and vivid performance by the day’s standards.
Even today, GTV6 is known for its perfect driving dynamics, solid acceleration times, and the fantastic soundtrack from the high revving V6. Interestingly, this car was sold in the USA and even sold with an optional turbo kit by Callaway performance, which was good for a whopping 233 HP.
