The 2000 GTV was introduced in 1971 as the replacement for the 1750 range. Once again the engine was rationalised throughout the range with its displacement increased to 1962cc by changing the bore and stroke.
Externally the 2000 GTV is most easily distinguished by the facelift grille with horizontal chrome bars, featuring protruding blocks forming the familiar Alfa heart in outline, smaller hubcaps with exposed wheel nuts and optional aluminium alloy wheels are styled to the “turbina” design first seen on the alloy wheels of the Alfa Romeo Montreal.
Often overlooked, the beautiful 105 Series Coupés have been under-appreciated for a long time. In the retail marketplace there is evidence that these models may have matured. Partly due to their usability but largely owing to their impressive styling, the GTV has become sought after and a great alternative as a classic GT.
First registered in the summer of 1975, this European delivered example is nicely restored with good panel fit and strong mechanicals. With 58,000 kilometres recorded the engine runs beautifully and the transmission changes smoothly. The panel fit is excellent and the chrome presents very well. Offered with Dutch registration papers, all in all this is a good example of a hugely enjoyable Alfa-Romeo sports GT.
