The Alfa Romeo Montreal

Inspired by Bertone's Alfa-based styling exercise penned by Marcello Gandini, the two-seater Montreal Coupé debuted at the Geneva Salon in 1970. Unlike the four-cylinder prototype, the production Montreal used a "civilized" version of the T33 sports-racing prototype's four-cam V8, which had first appeared in a road car in the T33 Stradale of 1967. In 3.0-liter form, it would be used by McLaren in Formula 1.

The limited edition Stradale had used the V8 in its original 2.0-liter capacity but the Montreal's version displaced 2,593cc. Producing 200bhp, the Montreal's front-mounted, dry-sump V8 drove the rear wheels via a ZF five-speed gearbox.

Aided by its aerodynamic body, the Montreal was good for a top speed of nearly 140mph and although expensive it proved to be very popular, 3,925 having been produced when production ceased in 1977. Very few road cars can claim an engine with antecedents in both long-distance sports car racing and Formula 1, and the Alfa Romeo Montreal is one of them.

The Motorcar Offered

Never originally sold in the United States, the Alfa Romeo Montreal has become a true collectible as enthusiasts have taken to its aggressive and unique styling as well as its place as one of the only V8 powered Alfas. This particular example, finished in Rosso Alfa red with a tan leather interior, was delivered new to Germany. The car passed through three owners before the penultimate owner, an Alfa enthusiast who owned two other Montreals in addition to this vehicle, sold it to the American owner who imported it stateside.

Reported to be a strong runner, the Montreal was recently serviced during which all of the filters were changed, the rear limit straps were replaced, and the starter and points were renewed. Very rarely seen stateside, with fewer than 100 examples believed to have made their way to the U.S., this handsomely presented Montreal is sure to bring a smile to anyone fortunate enough to get behind the wheel and experience that delightful twin-cam V8 and ZF 'box. It is a motoring experience to be savored.
