The Alfa Montreal is arguably the most exotic series production automobile that Alfa Romeo ever built. Employing a detuned version of the quad-cam fuel-injected dry sump V8 from the legendary T33 racer, 5-speed ZF transmission, 4-wheel disc brakes, and a chassis derived from the venerable 105 series cars, the Montreal was both a sophisticated and strikingly unique sports car. It was the production realization of the concept car styled by Giorgietto Giugiaro of Bertone first presented at the Montreal expo in 1967. Indeed, the Alfa Montreal can be viewed as a design and engineering cross between an Alfa GTV and a Lamborghini Miura SV, both of which were bodied by Bertone. With just 3925 examples produced, today’s market is finally reflecting an increasing awareness of just how fantastic and collectible these cars are. A blend between sports and touring car, the driving experience is as equally rewarding on the highway as it is on winding back roads.
This well preserved and well documented 1972 Montreal has been recently serviced and is “turn-key” ready to enjoy. It starts readily and feels responsive going down the road. The steering, brakes and suspension all react as designed and instill a sense confidence under spirited driving. The electricals are all in working order and the odometer currently reads 91766 Km. The original paint code sticker showing ORO 826 (Metallic Gold) is still in place and though it appears that some repaint work has been done, there are no signs of any body damage and the color match is perfect. The interior shows little wear and appears to be all original. There is one small crack in the dash otherwise the interior is in very nice condition.
