hmmm i have a hard time with the "factory" spec being that light especialy compared to a actualy scaled gtv6...1280ish for a gtv6 and less than 100kg more for a milano....always knew factorys fibbed a bit on there weight #'s lol
if memory serves the gtv6 is what 12 inches shorter than the milano?..thats gotta be ALOT more than a simple 100lbs...not to mention the nose extension(or atleast thats the way i veiw the milly lol)
Real life weights are in the high 2900 lbs range for the Verde. Many people here with their cars in ready-to-track spec (no rear seat, half tank of gas and fluids) list their cars at abour 2900 flat w/o driver. That is the number I've been basing things off of.
2900 US pounds is 1315kg so it looks as if the factory claim is about right for a 3 litre V6. Why would they lie anyway? If people took any notice of weight most modern cars would be in trouble I would have thought. 1315kg is light by today's standards.
By the way, I just got back from a club economy run through the city and Adelaide Hills in my 3 litre with three people on board and it returned 31.6 mpg imperial. I'm pretty happy with that. I was driving conservatively but not super economically.
My twinspark track car is currently 1040kg or approximately 2300 lbs with 2/3 tank of fuel, which is how I run it on the track. It has a cage, harness and race seat but little else inside. It still has the aircon, power steering, power windows and central locking - all of which will go in the next three months. With plexiglass windows and fibreglass boot and bonnett still to come, I aim to get it down to 950kg. Anything else would require major surgery, well beyond my meagre skills! It is amazing the overall effect that weight reduction has on acceleration, braking and handling.
hmmm nice to know that a "track" car with a cage can get down that low with simplisity.....
im currently preping to take 20 inches out of the wheelbase for the project..with all these #s ive seen posted my goal of under 2000lbs should be simplistic..will also be bumperless and about 1 foot shorter at the front of the front wheels and 1 foot shorter behind the rear wheels.....by the time the figures add up and calculate down 1800lbs may be stretching it but still posible
Does anyone have a source for the rubber trim which goes between the body and the fiberglass wheel well trim on Verde Milanos? I have a A-R part # of 605-32200. I would assume this is NLA but there is an equal somewhere.

Reposting this here as the part is shared between the GTV6 and the Milano/75.
I'm slowly putting my GTV6 back together and I've come to realize I'm missing the spacers that go between the transaxle/DiDion crossmember and the body. Is anyone able to measure theirs so that I could make...
I’ve just returned to the forum after about 8 years. (Formerly “new alfa75 owne” but that username wont let me log in). In any case, my Alfa has been in the garage and not started for about 7-8 years. There wasn’t much wrong with the car when I garaged it, just had an electrical issue...
The ABS pump on my platinum failed last fall, pumped brake fluid out of the motor/pump seal rather than into the interior. I managed to find a parts car with working ABS pump (as in I hooked up a battery, turned the key to "on" and pumped the brakes, causing the pump to run momentarily then...
