1991 Alfa Romeo 75 3.0 v6 Qv 3.0 V6 from UK and Ireland
Really Fast 4 Seater
Changed radiator at 58,000 miles.
2nd gear sincromesh went on the gear-box at about 59,000 miles.
Changed front and rear gear-box mountings.
Head gasket blew at 62,000 miles.
Slight wear on drivers seat causing the crumbled sponge effect.
All in all a great car.
This is one of if not the best V6 engine in the world, talk about sound, this car has an orchestra under the bonnet. Having fitted some stainless steel racing manifolds and getting rid of the Cat and fitting a 3.5 inch stainless steel Tig Welded exhaust this baby really sings over 3000rpm. And the throttle response is phenomenal compared to standard, well worth the £1000 price tag.
To date there has not been any other car that puts that sort of huge smile on your face when you give it some.
The torque on this car in any gear is fantastic.
The cars best acceleration kick in at about 70 mph then it really starts hammer right up-to 140 mph. (had the car on a track)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I've had one too and I have to agree it really is a great car.
Well worth the odd problem you get.
On a track there`s not a lot of cars in its class that will keep up.
When you want to sell the car on, give me a shout on
07817 977769. I've been looking for a decent one with a decent pipe on it for a while.
I completely agree - it's a cracker of a car, although a little lightweight; helps the speed/power, but probably not good in an accident (think sardine tin).
I have one too (not a QV though) and it has been one of the best handling (it's lowered so even better than normal), quickest (complete recon mildly tuned engine from an independent Alfa specialist) and most exhilarating, fun cars to drive that I've ever come across.
Minus points - build, boot size, errr... that's about it.
Problems - needed new prop doughnuts when I tried to race a Cozzie (silly) ; needed a steering/susp alignment when new engine was fitted, just to make sure handling was spot on; needed new half-shaft and HT set. Service items really, not problems. Absolute cracker of a car and highly highly recommended.
