It’s still a mixed story for those interested in Alfa Romeo’s GT coupe; there are precious few bargains to be found at main dealer outlets, but a few savings to be made if you’re prepared to buy pre-registered. When Autocar inquired at dealers Wilsons of Epsom and Desira of Hayes, there was little or no flexibility evident. At both, interest was still high enough to ensure that prices stayed at or above Alfa Romeo’s listed figures.
Independent specialists can offer better value, however. Melbury Motors (www.melburymotorcompany.co.uk) have delivery-mileage ’04-registered JTS and JTD models for as little as £19,000, representing a saving of up to £2,500. Smart Alfa (www.smartalfa.co.uk) are peddling even bigger savings – up £4,500 off a handsomely-equipped model.
