Some minor revisions, including a revised engine with new camshaft profiles and a change to mechanical-and-vacuum ignition advance, saw the 2.0-litre redesignated the Alfetta GTV 2000L. Autodelta also introduced a limited edition 2.0-litre turbocharged model, named Turbodelta, of which 400 were made for FIA Group 4 homologation. This version uses a KKK turbo which push power up to 175 PS (129 kW). The car also received a modified suspension layout. This is the first Italian petrol production car with a turbocharger.

Alfa 6

Alfa 6  V6 cyl., 2492 cm³ 158 cv - new model
  Berlina wb: 2600 mm    

Power cames from an all-new 2.5 V6 engine which generates 158 bhp at 5600 rpm using a total of six carburettors and a single, belt driven camshaft in each cylinder head. Power steering, power windows, central locking, electric wing mirrors and a 25% limited slip differential are standard, making the Alfa 6 competitively priced compared to similar saloons where such equipment typically is a costly extra. The car is also designed to set new standards in safety; for example it features a shock sensor in the boot which would cut off the fuel supply in the event of a crash.
