Alfa GT evolves into BlackLine

Alfa Romeo has given its Bertone-styled Alfa GT an update to create the limited edition GT BlackLine.

Among the changes, which Alfa Romeo says will "ramp up" the desirability of the car, are a set of 18-inch alloy wheels, metallic black paint and interior sports styling.

The exterior appearance of the car has been characterised with new satin-effect wing mirrors and a chrome exhaust.

Inside the GT BlackLine are black leather sports seats, a steering wheel with red stitching, aluminium sports pedals, an aluminium gearknob and a Bose sound system.

Two engine variants will be available with updated models – the first of which is a two-litre petrol unit delivering 165bhp, taking the car from 0-62mph in 8.7 seconds and offering a top speed of 134mph.

The second is a 150bhp, 1.9-litre diesel engine which enables the car to reach 62mph from a standstill in 9.6 seconds and a maximum speed of 130mph.

Despite these updates, Alfa Romeo states that the 2.0 and 1.9 GT BlackLine models are cheaper than current entry-level models, with prices starting from £19,980.
