Produced between 1967 and 1977, a remarkable 10-year run, the Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV is one of the best loved of all the 105-Series Alfa Romeo, and it’s easy to understand why.
Even though it was surpassed in sheer horsepower by many contemporaries, the 1750 GTV was the complete package, so to speak. It combined a smooth, relatively powerful engine, a delightful five-speed manual transmission, and a superlative direction, suspension and breaks that made this car an absolute delight to drive on twisty roads, while having plenty of oomph to follow at speed on the highways.
The 1967 Alfa Romeo 1750 GTV was powered by a straight-four, double-overhead cam engine that produced 122 horsepower, and propelled the car to a top speed of 118 miles an hour (189 km/h), and accelerated to 60 mph in 9.5 seconds.
It’s styling by Bertone meant that it was comfortable as a businessman’s car, or as a long-distance cruiser, and while other cars were faster or flashier, few were more fun.
