Our UK readers will be happy to learn that Alfa Romeo UK has just announced the availability of the Alfa GT Blackline. As the name suggests, the Blackline looks as if it's been dipped in an inkwell, with it's black metallic paint and black interior. Alfa tempers the darkness with a set of model-specific 18" wheels, satin-finish mirrors, metal pedals, and red contrast stitching inside. Power comes from either a 2.0-liter, 165-horsepower JTS gasoline engine, or a 1.9L JTDM turbodiesel shelling out 150 horsepower. Pricing for the car with the options it receives as part of the Blackline package is lower than a comparably-equipped standard-issue Alfa GT. Details can be found in the press release after the jump.

PRESS RELEASE:
ALFA ROMEO LAUNCHES LIMITED EDITION ALFA GT BLACKLINE

Ramping up the desirability of the Bertone styled Alfa GT, the Italian sporting car manufacturer has added unique 18" alloy wheels, metallic black paint and interior sports styling to create the limited edition Alfa GT BlackLine.

Yet, despite the stylish and eye-catching upgrades, the 2.0 JTS and 1.9 JTDM powered Alfa GT BlackLine models are priced lower than the current entry-level versions. Now on sale, the 2.0 JTS Alfa GT BlackLine costs £19,980 and the diesel version costs £20,980.

All limited edition Alfa GT BlackLine models feature a dramatic exterior look, with metallic black paint, satin effect wing mirrors, chrome exhaust and bespoke 18" alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin boasts black leather sports seats and steering wheel with red stitching, aluminium sports pedals, an aluminium gearknob with red stitching on the gaiter, and a Bose sound system.

Delivering head-turning style and performance to match, the 165bhp 2.0 JTS petrol engine will power the Alfa GT BlackLine from 0-62mph in a sporty 8.7 seconds, and on to a top speed of 134mph; while the gutsy 150bhp 1.9 JTDM will accelerate this Grand Tourer from 0-62mph in 9.6 seconds, and produce a top speed of 130mph.

      Stuff the 3.2L in there and I'd pay to crate this bad boy over.

      #4 a mate of mine brought one of the new Alpha Spiders over to California. Drove it around for a bit, but ended up having to ship it back because it would have cost over twenty grand to get it to pass the emissions regs.

      While we fuss over Hyundais, the Europeans get cars like that...

      0-60 in 8+ secs? talk about Hyundai's you'll have to yield to them in the passing lane. Anyways I'll take reliability over speed but if I remember Alfa's here had neither. Hopefully they improved.

      SHOTT3R? Are you a headlight or bumper man?

      Tim, ...and as soon as the road starts to get twisty, those Hyundai's will quickly disappear in that Alfa's rear view mirror. Handling is everything. I'll take the Alfa every time.
