An instant classic, Alfa Romeo produced the 105/115 series coupés between 1963 and 1977. They were successors to the Giulietta Sprint coupé and shared the same shortened floorplan as the Giulia saloon. The design of the body shape was young Giorgetto Giugiaro’s first major project for Bertone and it features similarities with his earlier design for the Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint. At the time the balance of glass and metal and the flat grille with incorporated headlamps were ground-breaking styling features.
All of the various models within the range featured four cylinder light alloy twin-cam engines with cubic capacities ranging from 1290cc to 1962cc. Disc brakes on all four wheels and 5-speed manual gearboxes were standard features of all cars.
One of the latter incarnations of the 105/115 series coupés was the 2000 GT Veloce which is also known as the 2000 GTV. It was introduced in 1971 as a replacement for the 1750 range. The engine displacement was increased to 1962cc and it produced 132 PS. The interior trim was updated with the most noticeable difference being the separate instrument cluster rather than the gauges being installed in the dash panel found in earlier cars. Externally the 2000 GTV is most easily distinguishable by the grille with horizontal chrome bars which features the familiar Alfa heart shape in the centre.
A truly iconic sports coupe, this Alfa is comfortable, yet dialed-in for around-town cruising. The Alfa GTV’s are well balanced cars with slick gearboxes and nimble/predictable handling, it is a wonderful vintage sports car in every respect. This is an extremely hard to find desirable model in this condition, a fantastic example of a ‘70s Italian icon and an opportunity not to be missed.
