Every country has a car that most represents its pinnacle of automotive production. It doesn’t have to be the fastest car, nor the most numerous in terms of manufacturing volume. The kind of vehicle in question here is one that has endured as a distillation of that country’s design, attitude, or engineering capability—that which makes it wholly unique. In Italy, you might argue that the Fiat 500 deserves this title, but this car, the Alfa Romeo GT Veloce (GTV), makes an exceptionally strong case. Yes, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Maserati’s exist, but nothing captures every single thing that’s perfect about Italian cars like this Alfa. The styling, the handling, the engine performance, the driving position, and the interior quality all represent Alfa’s lasting heritage in masterful fashion. The Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV was the final version in the popular Alfa Romeo 105/115 series – the common body used was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Bertone and today it’s remembered as one of the most enduring designs from Alfa during the period. Alfa built the 2000 GTV, otherwise known at the 2000 Grand Tourismo Veloce, between 1971 and 1976. Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro has created some of the most successful and influential cars in history, in an impressive career that spans over six decades. Some of his most famous designs are the James Bond Lotus Esprit that transforms into a underwater submarine. The VW Golf, Delorean, Detomaso Mangusta, Maserati Ghibli and over 200 more automobiles. The 1974 GTV 2000 had an overall length of 161.4 inches, the wheelbase 92.5 inches, the width 62.2 inches and a height of 51.8 inches. A total of 37,459 GTV 2000’s were produced worldwide. All Alfa Romeo GTV’s from the 1970’s are very collectible. The 1974 was very small production year only 1432 were produced. My Car was own by a Italian Family that owns a racing team an therefore has small engine modifications on the original born with engine.
