Description

Penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro at Bertone, the 105’s clean and distinctive design is one of the most attractive small coupes of the 1960s and 70s. The 2000 GTV was the final incarnation of the original design and benefited from Alfa Romeo’s larger 1932cc twin cam, all-aluminium, four-cylinder 1932cc engine. It produced an impressive 132 bhp along with a good level of useable torque which ensured the cars performance was better than many sports cars of the era. Our example is in its original and attractive colour combination of Amaranto with ‘natural’ interior and was first delivered in May 1972 to London, as confirmed by the Certificate of Origin which accompanies the car. The certificate also confirms the original engine is still with the car. It has spent much of its life in Australia, and we believe it first arrived in Perth before moving to Brisbane in the early 2000’s. From there is has been in the ownership of a number of known ‘Alfisti’ who have kept it in wonderful order. The current owner acquired the car in 2013 and due to the need to thin down his collection he has made the decision to sell one of his Alfa Romeo’s. The car has clearly seen the benefit of much work and expenditure in the past including new paint and mechanical work and still presents extremely well to this day. The body is in excellent all-round condition and the panel gaps are spot on. There are no signs of corrosion in the car and even underneath shows no signs of any previous repairs. It is the best we have seen. All the stainless steel brightwork is in wonderful order and sets the car off beautifully. The period correct Campagnolo alloy wheels are unmarked and are an attractive addition to the car. The interior is just lovely with everything as it should be. An unmarked steering wheel greets you and the dash and dials are something that just looks perfect to the eye. Whilst the seats appear original, they are unmarked and in quite remarkable order as is all the timber veneer, doors handles, winders, carpets and switches. The odometer reads 82,664 miles, and whilst it is difficult to confirm as original, the condition of the interior and engine bay certainly suggests this. The dashboard is perfect with no cracks and the instrument binnacle look spot on with only a little frosting to the rev counter cover, but this is being picky. The headlining is in excellent order with no rips or discolouration. Turn the key and the engine fires up to a familiar Alfa growl. Out on the open road this car is just superb. The gearbox is excellent with no issues with the synchro’s. It is accurate, smooth, and quick to work through the gears and using it is quite addictive. The engine is responsive and pulls extremely well with the 2-litre engine delivering a more spirited drive. Having spoken with 3 of its previous owners they all commented how well this car always performed. This is one well sorted car and a driver’s delight. It begs to be taken out in the hills for a good blast. The engine bay is clean and appealing to the eye. The boot is currently fitted with carpet but a correct rubber replacement can easily be sourced should the next owner wish to bring it back to its original state. The car has just been serviced by an Alfa Romeo specialist who commented how good the car was. These 105’s are great driver’s cars, and we can see why they are so sought after. Freshly restored cars are still fetching well north of $100,000 and this car represents good buying. This exceptional 2000 GTV is serviced, on the button and ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
