Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1971, the 2000 GTV was the final version of the classic 105-series Alfa Romeo coupé that had first appeared in 1963 as the Giulia Sprint GT. Designed by Carrozzeria Bertone's Giorgetto Giugiaro, but now manufactured at Alfa's new Arese factory, the Sprint GT was clothed in beautifully balanced, four-seater coachwork and is widely regarded as one of the prettiest of post-war coupés. There were no major styling changes made by Bertone for the 2000 GTV, 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.

    Supplied new in January 1975 by Staveley Motors of Kendal, this beautiful 2000 GTV has covered only 37,800 miles from new and must be one of the most original currently available. 'JEC 859N' has had only six owners, the penultimate of whom acquired the car in June 1991 and kept it for 21 years, carrying out basic servicing and maintenance to preserve originality. A National Concours Winner in 1982 (details in history file), it was sold to renowned Alfa Romeo expert Richard Banks in 1989 with only 32,300 miles on the odometer and has been in the vendor's hands since July 2012. Recently, in March 2012, the car was subject to service that included overhauling the brakes as well as oil changes to the engine, gearbox and differential. Described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition, it comes complete with all its original tools and handbooks, sundry invoices, current road fund licence, MoT to March 2014 and Swansea V5 document. Boasting superb handling and a race-proven twin-cam engine combining excellent performance with decent economy, these 105-series Alfa Romeo coupés are driver's cars par excellence.
