1972 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV - RHD - Stunning SOLD

Without doubt one of the prettiest cars produced by Alfa Romeo the Giugiaro designed for Bertone 105/115 series coupe shared much of its styling from the earlier 2000/2600 Sprint Coupe models. Introduced in 1963 originally as the Giulia Sprint GT, these 'scalino' (step front) cars were powered by a 1570 cc twin-cam engine, mated to a 5 speed gearbox and discs brakes all-round, quite a revelation for a small '60s coupe. With subtle changes to body styling and the introduction of both the GTJ (Junior) models and the more powerful GTV (Veloce) models with larger displacement 1779cc (1750 GTV) and the range topping 1962cc (2000 GTV) engines, Alfa Romeo became a tour de force and with its sublime handling the car was quite often used in motorsport, with Alfa even developing a lightweight competition driven model, the GTA. Production of the car continued through to 1977, with circa 200,000 cars built over its 14yr history, but eventually Alfa Romeo succumbed to more angular (wedge) styling and the 105/115 gave way to the Alfetta Coupe.

Sold in 1972, this stunning RHD Bertone Coupe was originally sold through the Alfa Continental Motors, Johannesburg dealership where its classic car friendly environment has helped to preserve the cars condition. Historic Alfa Romeo Fusi data indicates that she is quite probably one of the first 100 2000 GTV coupes built and finished in her striking Giallo Prototipo (Prototype Yellow), a color used on the one-off Alfa 33/2 Coupe Speciale, the GTV looks stunning next to the more common Rosso & Bianco finished cars.

Prior to coming to the UK we understand the GTV formed part of a collection for a Johannesburg car dealer and was subject to a detailed restoration, involving a top quality respray and a complete overhaul of the suspension and brake components. The minimal mileage covered since means that all these painted and powder-coated components still look as new. Since coming to our workshop we have further enhanced the car, by dropping the running gear, exhaust, fuel tank etc and completely stripping the floor pan to bare metal (which revealed no evidence of any previous work, so completely rust free), removal of the inner wing flitch panels (again rust free) and we have then detailed the underside with a professional underbody protection. In addition we have also replaced the original clutch master cylinder and the original twin circuit brake master cylinder with an updated Alfaholics unit. 

With evidence that so many mechanical components have been replaced, we felt it only fair to entrust the 2 litre twin cam with our local tuning specialist.The service included: new oil / filter / plugs; a full balance of the twin 40 Webers and engine timing set back to factory settings. It is an absolute pleasure to take the Alfa out for a run on the road and we can confirm that the handling and power delivery, a throaty induction roar under acceleration, confirms what a fantastic handling and driving experience the 130bhp 2000 GTV is and we have no reason to doubt that the indicated 56,000 miles is quite probably original to the car.

With typical Italian flair the black interior oozes late 60's styling. The seats and door cards are original to the car and remain in wonderful condition. The wood rimmed 3 spoke steering wheel perfectly frames the leather trimmed 4 dial dash, with other switch gear easily to hand and hints of chrome and wood, this interior is a wonderful place to enjoy any journey.

With current market trends highlighting the 105/115 series coupes as one of the must have classics, it is rare to find a RHD example in such wonderful condition and sold with valid MOT, original service book, receipts for recent work, we feel this stunning Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV is one of the best available.
