The Alfa Romeo 1750 and 2000 Berlinas (both 105 series) were executive 4 seater saloon cars produced by Alfa Romeo between 1968 and 1977.
Berlina is the Italian for ‘saloon’ and both cars had Alfa Romeo’s fabulous twin cam inline-four engines. The 1.8-litre 1750 Berlina was produced between 1968 and 1971 and then phased out in favour of the improved 2.0 litre Berlina which continued in production until 1977. The 2 litre Berlina Twin Cam produced 130 bhp, a top speed of 124 mph and 0-62 mph in 9 seconds and was made famous due to its popularity with the Mafia!
Interestingly, although Left Hand Drive, this lovely example was actually supplied new in the UK in November 1973, fitted with the more powerful 2 litre twin-cam engine and 5-speed gearbox. The Berlina has had just 4 owners from new, with the current vendor having purchased the car in 2010. The Alfa has just benefited from a repaint to a very high standard, an interior retrim and the fitting of GTA style road wheels all round, also a new wooden steering wheel. The Berlina is offered with a current UK MoT certificate, with no advisories noted.
This is an exceptional example of a rare sporting saloon car of the 1970s, one which we are sure will provide its next enthusiastic owner plenty of fun over the coming summer months.
