Marcello Gandini... father of the Lamborghini Miura and Countach, the Lancia Stratos and of course this phenomenal Alfa Romeo Montreal. He was working for Bertone at the time. Back then, styling was more important than functionality. During the presentation at the Montreal World Expo, it was not yet clear whether the engine would be placed in the front or in the back. The V8 from the 33 Stradale was thought to be perfect and it turned out to be perfect.

Although it was equipped with the Spica injection system to make the racing engine more suitable for normal use. "Among the most beautiful, potent and rare GT cars to wear the Alfa badge"... is how the car was described in a classic car review.

An extreme original and well-kept unit. This can be said about the whole car. Technically prepared by a well-known Alfa Romeo classics specialist in 2018, after the car was given a new coat of paint in 2017. It is important to take a good look at the seams. Which are perfect on this Montreal. The interior is original, in a bright condition with minimal traces of wear. The car really close to condition 1!

The 2.6 litre V8 is a true Gran Turismo engine, with a 5-speed manual gearbox (type dog-leg: 1st gear at the lower left).
Maintenance performed by classic Alfa specialist Van Lingen in April of 2018 for more than €3,000; oil service, Spica filter replaced, brake oil refreshed, engine adjusted.

The car can be viewed and picked up in Broek op Langedijk, the Netherlands.
