I know of one other one, in black, just as pristine and original with much lower miles, and has the Gold mesh wheels. As nice as this red one looks, I think the black one is even nicer. It's showroom perfect, stored inside, but not for sale.

Thanks,

Rob from New Hampshire. (Robnh)

Current line up: 76 Alfetta Sedan Euro 1.8L, 88 Milano Verde, 88 Milano Platinum Auto, 1992 164L Automatic

I don't want to downplay the rarity or niceness of the Callaway - I just didn't realize it could actually be worth nearly twice as much as a regular GTV6 in excellent condition. (Or as some here have mentioned, up to 4-5 times as much).
Absolutely it's worth twice as much as a regular GTV6 in excellent condition. Only 35 ever made! First factory backed Callaway ever! Sure I would love to have bid $35K but $50 to $60 is right on the money. A fantastic GTV6 in A+ condition is now around $20,000 and that's top of the mark. $15,000 is more like it today. In three months, $18,000 will be great.

current and or past: 1987 Milano (Ariel) 1984 GTV6 (Sabrina) 1992 164L (Jill) 1992 164S (Kelly) 1989 Spider Veloce (Julie) 1991 164L (Chris) 1991 Spider (Melissa)

comparing a '57 giulietta to an '86 gtv6 is not quite the apples-to-apples comparison of a gtv6 3.0 to a callaway gtv6.

but, different horses for different courses. no doubt, everyone's entitled to spend their money however they like. you can enjoy looking at yours; i will enjoy driving mine.

me personally, if i had the money for a callaway gtv6, i'd be driving an es-30 instead...

ymmv,

Details, details...lol

Perhaps the rarity of the Callaways will propel them to be worth lots of money, but one can never be sure of that. (This goes for any car). Once you start putting miles on one of these 1 in 35, value goes down...so it's best to just store it and maybe take it out once in a while (which causes other problems). Still, if this thing fetches 60 or 70 grand, that's great because it means all the excellent condition "regular" GTV-6's like mine are likely going to inch up in value, too. Not that I'd ever sell, unless I needed the money to pay a ransom...

And I agree - i'd rather have an SZ and the improvements that car has to the chassis and build quality (which can already be seen in the Milano).

really... the callaway gtv6 is a plain gtv6 w/a hotted up engine. it's just like any other gtv6 in all other ways, really. i'd rather have the gtv6 w/the 24v v6 that's been recently discussed here:

http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/alfe...24v-build.html

agreed that it would be great to see all our gtv6's appreciate in value a little.
