1996 Alfa Romeo GTV 2.0 TB (turbo benzina) with 202 hp turbocharged ‘Busso’ V6; 5-speed manual transmission. Runs and drives well – engine has good power; transmission, clutch, steering, brakes feel like they should.

Engine and Chassis: Engine starts right up and runs excellent. Good boost and good power and no leaks or unusual sounds. Does not consume oil. Clutch take-up is where it should be and transmission shifts well. General driving dynamics are very good. Steering is positive. Brakes have stainless lines and lots of pad left. Exhaust looks very good. Suspension feels good w/ negligible play in lower rubber bushings.

Note: Speedo inop. odometer reports 71,476 km – consistent with Shakken: 2009 (Heisei 21.7) = 61,236; 2009 (Heisei 21.12) = 63,309; 2011 (Heisei 23.11) = 67,528; 2013 (Heisei 25.12) = 69,808 – likely needs hall-effect sensor (troubleshooting .1.2.3 – part #71748473). AC compressor operated however not particularly cold.
