Alfa Romeo 8C 2900

Alfa Romeo Junior Zagato

In the 1960’s Alfa Romeo had great successes with the Alfa 1300 GTA in both racing and in car sales. Alfa’s CEO Luraghi therefore thought it was time to further exploit this success with the production of a more exclusive car based on the successful technique of the 1300 series. Zagato was chosen to come up with a concept and Ercole Spada, who had already been involved in the design of the TZ and TZ2, drew the first sketches of the car in 1968. READ MORE

Alfa Romeo Montreal

The Bertone styled Alfa Romeo Montreal was unveiled as a 'styling exercise' at the 1967 Expo in Montreal. The response was phenomenal which drove Alfa Romeo to quickly create the production version which was introduced in 1970. The vehicle featured a V8, similar to the one used in the Type 33, and a top speed in the neighborhood of 130 mph. The chassis was from the 1750 touring car. A five-speed manual gear box and ventilated disc brakes were also used.
The way the vehicles name was derived should be fairly obvious; after the location where it was initially introduced. This was the fastest production vehicle Alfa had produced to date. READ MORE....
