Alfa Romeo - GTV
The Alfa Romeo 1750/2000 was a medium-priced range of cars presented in 1967 by Alfa Romeo. Designed by Bertone, the 1750 Berlina sedan was introduced in 1967, based on the existing Giulia range of cars. The sedan's body shape resembled the Giulia, but with some of that vehicle's distinctive creases smoothed out, and with significant changes to the trim details. The car had 1779 cc twin-carb engine and hydraulic clutch. The 1.8 L engine was producing 118 PS (116 hp/87 kW) with two twin sidedraught carburettors, For USA markets the 1750 was equipped with SPICA fuel injection.

In 1971, the 1750 Berlina was fitted with experimental 3-speed ZF automatic gearbox. The model designation was 1750A Berlina. Between 249 and 251 were produced with very few surviving to this day. The automatic gearbox wasn't well-suited to the four-cylinder motor due to baulky shifting and ill-chosen gear ratios. Because of this, its fuel consumption was frighteningly high and acceleration bit too slow. In 1972 the 1750 series was replaced with the 2000 series, with approximately 100,000 units being produced. The 2000 series Berlina was made by Alfa Romeo between 1971-1977. The engine was bored and stroked out to 2.0 Ltr. The easiest way to separate 2000 from 1750 is different grill. With two carburetors this 1962 cc twincam engine produced 132 PS (130 hp/97 kW). Top speed was 200 km/h (124 mph) and acceleration took 9 seconds 0-100 km/h. In USA this was equipped with mechanical fuel injection. Transmission was 5-speed manual (also 3-speed automatic on some versions).
