In April 1979, Alfa Romeo released some images of the new luxury saloon.
In June 1979, Modern Motor, an Australian motoring magazine, sent their man to Italy to drive the new Alfa 6. His opinion was somewhat mixed.
The Alfa 6 was test driven in Italy by the Australian Wheels magazine in August 1979. Their verdict: “it’s good”.
Motor Manual, an Australian motoring magazine, profiled the newly released Alfa 6 in August 1979. The article was entitled “Alfa’s ‘Plain Jane’ V6 – anti-kidnap style.” The review, unsurprisingly, was not exactly an enthusiastic endorsement of Alfa’s new saloon.
In November 1979, Auto & Design, a bi-lingual Italian automotive magazine, contained a very interesting profile of the newly released Alfa 6. The design sketches show the evolution of the final shape quite well.
Motor, a UK motoring magazine, tested the newly released Alfa 6 in late 1980…and damned the car with faint praise really.
By 1982,the Australian press had warmed a little to the Alfa 6. A test drive of a manual Delloroto’d version in Italy won Barry Lake over…well almost.
In late 1983, Australian Wheels magazine reported hopefully about a proposed 3 litre version of the Alfa 6 being released. A pity this did not come to fruition.
In 1984 Alfa Romeo released a colourful glossy sales brochure showing the luxury lifestyle associated with the Alfa 6…sexy times!
An excellent website with a plethora of articles on the Alfa Sei…!!!
An interesting collection of Alfa 6 and Alfa 90 images.
The last remaining roadworthy series 2 Alfa 6 is tested alongside a variety of other period saloons.
