Footnotes

  • First introduced in 1962, the early Giulia differed from the outwardly similar 101-Series Giulietta by virtue of its more powerful and much less fussy 1,570cc engine, which continued when the new 105-Series Giulia was introduced later that same year. Despite its boxy, unitary construction body the newcomer was a paragon of aerodynamic efficiency and possessed a distinctly sporting nature, the 92bhp produced by its classic twin-cam four-cylinder engine making the Giulia TI a genuine 100mph car. Under the skin the Giulia featured a five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung live rear axle and - apart from early cars - disc brakes all round, a formula that carried over into the coupé version, the Giulia Sprint GT.
    Launched in 1963 the Sprint GT was clothed in beautifully balanced four-seater coachwork designed by Carrozzeria Bertone's Giorgetto Giugiaro but now manufactured at Alfa's new Arese factory. It represented a successful attempt to produce a typically sporting Alfa coupé for the young family man, a modestly priced four-seater combining the elegance of a Bertone-designed body with the performance of a twin-cam engine.
    Introduced in 1971, the 2000 GTV was the final version of the classic 105-Series Alfa Romeo. There were no major styling changes made by Bertone, merely a new grille, the body remaining the same as the preceding 1600 and 1750 models. Representing the final enlargement of Alfa's legendary twin-cam four, the 1,962cc engine produced 132bhp, which was delivered to the road via a five-speed gearbox and limited-slip differential. Torquier than its 1750 predecessor, the 2000 GTV was good for a top speed of 120mph.
    This right-hand drive 2000 GTV was first owned by the Rt Hon The Viscount Portman. A low mileage example (the odometer reading is only 20,556 at time of cataloguing), the car was restored earlier this year when work carried out included a full bare-metal re-spray, new carpets (boot included), new exhaust system, overhauled carburettors, mechanical re-commissioning and a full service. Driving beautifully, with both engine and gearbox described a 'excellent', 'BCJ 185L' is offered with sundry restoration invoices, current road fund licence, MoT to June 2013 and Swansea V5.
