The Alfetta GT officially debuted in June 1974, in a not so favorable historical moment to launch sports cars, due to the energy crisis and the introduction of speed limits. In short, the general climate that reigned in those years heavily penalized especially those manufacturers which, like Alfa Romeo, had price lists all projected towards driving brilliance.
Giorgetto Giugiaro had to create a car suitable for all the families and for this reason decided to adopt the hatch instead of a more traditional bonnet to access the trunk.
The Alfetta GT 1.6 (type 116.04) was equipped with the same engine that from 1975 had also been introduced in the range of the Alfetta sedan and did not present large differences compared to the previous 1800 cc and although rarer, but less sought after than the1800, it had a fair commercial success. It was produced until 1980 in only 16,923 units.
