THE ALFA ROMEO MONTREAL

Alfa Romeo contracted Bertone to design an innovative new sports car in 1967 to reveal to the world at the Expo 67 World's Fair in Montreal. Penned by Marcello Gandini, who created the iconic Miura just one year before, the concept featured innovative side gills and retractable slotted headlight shades on a classic, flowing shape. This sleek, unnamed coupe was met with much acclaim and began to be colloquially referred to as the Alfa Romeo Montreal.

Three years later, Alfa debuted the Alfa Romeo Montreal as a production model at the 1970 Geneva Auto Salon. While strikingly similar stylistically to the Expo 67 concept, the production model abandoned the Giulia's four-cylinder for a high-revving quad-cam V8 based on the 2.0 liter Tipo 33 Stradale engine. This 90° dry-sump V8 redlined at 7,000 rpm and brought this stylish coupe to 60 from a standstill in 7.1 seconds on to a top speed of nearly 140. While the Montreal offers blistering performance and stunning Marcello Gandini good looks, it also features four seats and a trunk, making it quite a practical and usable sports car.

With a sticker price higher than a Jaguar XKE or Porsche 911, the striking design and exhilarating performance was not enough to tempt many buyers, with just 3,925 examples produced by 1977. Regardless, the Montreal is a beautiful hand-built Italian sports car worthy of a place in any collection.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Purchased new in 1972 by Luigino Neri of Terni, Italy, this Montreal was specified with factory air-conditioning in a decidedly '70s combination of Gold over a tan interior, the same combination it bares today. Sig. Neri, an active member of the Alfa Romeo Club of Terni, retained ownership of the car for 42 years, enjoying and carefully maintaining this stunning coupe. The original owner also showed the car, winning Best in Class at the 1986 San Marcello Pistoiese Car Show and a Best in Class commendation from the ASI (Automotoclub Storico Italiano) in 1994.

After 40 years of passionate use and ownership, this golden stunner was repainted to a high standard in its original color, before being sold for the first time in 2013. The current owner then imported the Montreal into the US in 2015, the first time this car left Italy. The car is presented in wonderful condition, with fresh paint, a nicely presented interior, and well-sorted mechanicals. Included with the sale is a tool kit, books and manuals, original Italian title, and original Italian license plates.
