The Alfa Romeo 1750 GT Veloce first entered production in 1976, and featured a number of enhancements to it’s predecessor. Performance was up through increased engine capacity which created a feistier, more urgent machine, that also underwent significant chassis modifications. Revised suspension and new geometry sharpened up the handling, wider wheels added further mechanical grip with an uprated anti-roll bar employed to counter this. Uprated brakes were added too, further adding to the GTV’s backroad prowess.
The Bertone bodied Alfa’s are a beautiful, timeless piece of design, comparable to a 911 in its simplicity and versatility - equally at ease parked up in upscale cosmopolitan surroundings as it in a greasy pit lane garage. Like a classic 911 their compact lightweight form combined with sharp handing, RWD and a characterful engine make them a them a true joy to drive, and thoroughly analogue and engaging experience that you often find yourself lusting after when not behind the wheel. Combine their styling, driving ability and cult following both from die hard Alfisti and the car community in general and you have a car that is a very solid investment for time to come.
