OP votes GTV6. First time I saw one was in Japan.

Stunning looking car.

Ooo... Now it's a tossup. I barely prefer the looks of the Scorpion, and rear drive is important, but the GTV6 sounds(and what a sound!) and looks amazing...

It pains me to say so, but... GTV6. SWMBO votes for the same.

GTV6 FTW. Having worked on, and sold parts for both of the contenders the Alfa wins in just about every category except shifter (fixes available) and out-of-the-box handling (more fixes available). The engine alone hands the Alfa the win.

Lancia. No, Alpha. Wait, Lancia. No, wait again Alfa.

Lancia by a nat's whisker.

Alfa by a fair margin.

Lancia is still cool, though.

Does the Alfa V6 fit in the back of a Scorpion????

I've had sisters of both, a Milano and X1/9. It would be a really tough decision. I suppose the Lancia would be my choice, as I've never had a Lancia and I've had a car with the same drivetrain as the GTV6.

Also in the Alfas favor, it's won a LeMons race.

For Alfas though, it's one I've never owned. Alfetta and Milano, yes. But skipped the gtv6.

Alfa. Looks like a lopsided victory on this one so far.

Another vote for the alfa - but the lancia is sexy.

I'm still going with Lancia. If only because I've been a fan for as long as I can remember. But I sure wouldn't kick that alfa out of the garage.
