Inspirée de l'exercice de style dessiné par Marcello Gandini pour Bertone sur base Alfa Romeo, le coupé deux places Montréal fit ses débuts au Salon de Genève en 1970. Contrairement au prototype à quatre cylindres, la Montreal de série utilisait une version « civilisée » du V8 quatre arbres de la Sport Prototype T33 qui était apparue pour la première fois dans une voiture de route sur la 33 Stradale de 1967 et qui allait être utilisé dans une version 3 litres par McLaren en Formule 1.

La série limitée Stradale utilisait la version 2 litres originale du V8, mais pour la Montreal, on préféra la version de 2 593 cm3. Le moteur à lubrification par carter sec monté à l'avant de la Montreal développait 200 ch qui étaient transmis aux roues arrière via une boîte ZF à cinq rapports, tandis que son train roulant était emprunté à la Giulia 1750 GTV contemporaine. Grâce à sa carrosserie fastback aérodynamique, la Montreal atteignait un bon 220 km/h et, malgré un prix conséquent, s'avéra très populaire, 3 925 voitures ayant été produites lorsque la fabrication prit fin en 1977. Très peu de voiture de série peuvent s'enorgueillir d'un moteur avec de tels antécédents, tant en endurance qu'en Formule 1, mais la Montreal est l'une d'entre elles.

Cette Montreal a été restaurée en 2015, y compris la réfection du moteur, par The Classic Car Workshop Ltd. Bronze avec intérieur en tissu beige remis à neuf, la voiture est vendue avec ses papiers d'immatriculation UK V5C et les factures relatives à sa restauration.

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 'civilised' version of the T33 sports-racing prototype's four-cam V8, which had first appeared in a road car in the 33 Stradale of 1967 and in 3.0-litre form would be used by McLaren in Formula 1.
The limited edition Stradale had used the V8 in its original 2.0-litre 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, while the running gear was sourced from the contemporary Giulia 1750GTV. Aided by its aerodynamic body, the Montreal was good for a top speed of 137mph (220km/h) and although expensive proved 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, but the Alfa Romeo Montreal is one of them.

This Montreal was restored in 2015, including an engine rebuild, by The Classic Car Workshop Ltd. Finished in bronze with refurbished fawn cloth interior, the car comes with a UK V5C registration document and invoices relating to its restoration.
