First introduced in 1971, the Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV was an exciting 2-door coupe which had a great European quality that set it apart from other sports cars of its day. This was a model which teenagers and car enthusiasts alike could appreciate, and indeed, many still do. To make this model stand out from other Alfa Romeo models, the front grille added an exciting element to the car. Horizontal chrome bars gleamed on the grille, and the Alfa heart outline was displayed prominently in the middle. This grille would eventually become standard on the other models as well, but its appearance on the 2000 GTV made the model even more unique from other Alfa Romeo models. Below is a more comprehensive overview of other features in the 1973 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV.
This model had a straight 4 cylinder Alfa Romeo engine, which produced 131 horsepower at 5,500 rpm. It drew power from its 13.8 gallon (US) fuel tank. Accelerating from 0-60 took 8.9 seconds and this classic car could reach the quarter mile in 16.6 seconds. With a top speed of 121 miles per hour, it took 27.7 seconds for the 1973 GTV to reach 100 mph. The five-speed manual transmission was the standard, and an automatic transmission would become available the following year. Though the cars were moderately popular during their production, they started at a price that is equivalent to the neighborhood of $26,000 in today’s dollars. Today, they sell for a little more than that amount, which is far less than other, more rare model from the same year.
The Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV was produced from 1971-1976, and the model saw a handful of changes in that time frame, and enjoyed the spoils of its cosmetic changes from earlier Alfa Romeo models. About 37,460 units were produced in all.
