Coachwork by Bertone
Upon its debut at the Geneva auto show in 1970, the Alfa Romeo Montreal really was a dream car come true. Consistently ranked among the world’s most beautiful cars, the Montreal was powered to match, with a fuel-injected DOHC V-8 derived from Alfa Romeo’s famed Tipo 33 sports racer. At most, just 3,925 examples were constructed between 1970 and 1977.
Regarded as one of the finest examples in existence by marque enthusiasts, this Montreal was first imported to the US in 1985. Extremely successful on the show field, this Montreal has won First Place awards under Alfa Romeo Owners Club scrutiny in 1992, 1996, 1998, 2002, and 2005. At the September 2013 Santa Fe Concorso, the Montreal placed Second in Class behind the Best of Show-winning Ferrari 275 N.A.R.T. Spider. On long-distance tours, the Alfa Romeo has proven itself very well, having completed the September 2012 Going-to-the-Sun Rally in Montana and the Copperstate 1000 in April 2013.
Also in 2013, the Montreal received comprehensive attention to virtually every mechanical system, with emphasis on originality, mechanical excellence, and reliability. Cosmetically, new foam seat inserts were fitted retaining the original seat fabric, and the stainless trim was polished to a high luster. Among the finest of its kind, this Montreal continues to impress and offers an inspired blend of Marcello Gandini’s design and Alfa Romeo’s engineering.
