Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce
Congratulations to all who take their passion to the highest level. La meccanica delle emozioni ! – Alfa Romeo
Special cars stay with you forever, especially that first encounter. One early morning at the lake in Laveno, Italy, our neighbour started up something that bubbled, had a growl and came to life with – quite a bit of – blue smoke. The 1750 GTV of the 105 branch in the Alfa family tree. To this day, one of the most beautiful coupes ever made in our opinion. The lines are not too much, but gorgeous. No bells and whistles, but the important things are accentuated a little extra. From the enthusiast for the enthusiast.
The handling of the 1750 and 2000 GTV is also exactly what you would expect from a legendary Romeo. Firm grip on the road, plenty of contact with the asphalt and pushing in the lower back due to the rear-wheel drive. When your ‘olio meter is in the middle, that’s where the sound comes in. Because what a good thing that is! Between 5 and 6 thousand revs, it drives best, sounds healthiest and as soon as you release the throttle; exactly enough afterburner. No DSG crackle of the modern VW Golfs, but real afterburner. You can feel your chest hair grow every time you shift down!
Ours is in Blanco Pieso and was fully restored a few years ago in Belgium. She has hardly been driven in the past 5 years and we have stripped her of all dust. She is ready for many smiles a litre again. Ci vediamo presto?I'm interested in this object
