First major facelift for GTV/Spider range. Some call it phase 2 I named it phase 2a to differentiate it from later Euro3 oriented phase 2b.

Alfa Romeo GTV and Spider Production Numbers
Following table is updated with my original research.
And so years: 1993, 1994, 2002, 2003 ad 2004 are different from those based on other sources and are most up-to-date.
Currently year 2001 is being researched as up to this point it was only done selectively in search of limited editions only.
Rest of the table is still based on current publications and therefore will be subjected to change when and if there are any differences in results.
With selective 2001 year and complete 2002-2004 years researched, I was able to compile limited editions numbers and phase 3 register so far.
last update: 4-02-2014
Total count: 41,992 GTV and 38,764 Spider produced.
Phase 3 total count: 4,705 units.
For some time there was a rumour that Mr Giugiaro had something to do with the Alfa 156 design (pre-His-facelift of course)
And I did found something:
“In actual fact, Giugiaro contributed to the 156 during the initial stage of the project.”
Maybe it was a bit like an initial design of Gallardo, later finished by Mr Donckerwolke; or a wind-tunnel contribution to MC 12 project?
“Eng. Bandiera also touched upon the styling contribution driven through by Giugiaro in the realization of the ongoing 156 model.”
Both from december 2002, so pre-Giugiaro-2003-156-facelift
Someone was constantly trying to ‘update’ wikipedia with his opinion that an Alfa 4C is a successor to an Alfa 8C Competizione. After a long struggle to keep the vandal away, person in question tried even to find a ‘half-pint’ source to his ‘half-pint’ factual opinion.
Just because some journalist called a 4C half-pint successor to 8C Competizione does not make it so. Also an argument that some car is indirectly related to other just because they are both Alfa Romeo’s is a bit too weak.
My reply on wikipedia’s corresponding talk pages:
“Alfa 8C Competizione is not a predecessor to the 4C, directly nor indirectly. 8C is a V8 front engined, 2 seater, gran turismo, limited production. 4C is a carbon-tub, mid engined, 4 cyl, 2 seater sports car, mass produced. No reltion. And ‘indirectly’ every car is related to every other car. Please don’t change it again. ”
Hope You all agree with this, factual, opinion
1995 GTV Alfa Corse for sale at carsensor.net. Beige Leather seats and no limited edition plaque. Also please note the different front bumper lower lip and single exhaust.
Maybe it’s just an aftermarket tuning. Original edition should have a 230PS engine.
