Market Watch: Alfa GT Juniors quietly defy the market

While other sports cars have bobbed up and down with the rises and falls of the market, these addictive Alfas have chosen their own road.

Alfa Romeo GT Junior

With little fanfare, these 105-series GTs have been steadily growing.

Our latest Price Guide Movers on the Up figures show an 8% rise in values for Alfa Romeo GT Juniors, those Giugiaro-penned coupés that share their underpinnings with the saloon and convertible spider siblings. They’ve avoided the spotlight of fad-led investor collectors and the inevitable spikiness in values that would follow. Instead, they remain consistently coveted and enjoyed by a loyal tribe.

The latest move means you’ll typically pay £4.4k for a project car and £27k for something faultless, a modest 5.4% more than values this time last year and a strong but steady 12.9% more than five years ago. They may not have as much power as the more expensive 1750 and 2000GTVs, but once you have those gutsy twin-cam motors singing and their fluid handling at full tilt on a favourite twisty road, you really won’t care. Despite the recent rise, they still look great value compared to anything of the period that’s half as rewarding to own and drive.
