1971 Alfa Romeo GTV 1750 Fast Road Spec

1971 Alfa Romeo GTV 1750 Fast Road Spec

In the mid-1960s Alfa Romeo were on a mission to continually one-up themselves. Akin to the Beetle’s and The Rolling Stone’s ability to knock out hit-after-hit, Alfa Romeo produced driver's car after driver's car.

Building off the success of the Sprint GT and Sprint GT Veloce, Alfa Romeo released the 1750 GTV. The V, standing for Veloce or in English, Fast. Naming your new model, Fast doesn’t leave you with a lot of room for error. A reworked exterior, removed the “step-nose” and added in an extra pair of front lamps, as well as a whole host of face lifting upgrades inside.

This GTV, is no ordinary GTV, it was produced in July of 1971, supplied new in London and remains finished in its original shade of “Biancospino” over a black interior with grey carpets. It is and has been for many years a very well known car in Alfa Romeo circles in the UK for all of the right reasons. 


You’ll quickly take note of how well this GTV presents, that in part is thanks to a full rotisserie restoration and repaint, as well as a subsequent amount of work to ensure optimal panel gaps and fitment. All this work results in a GTV that is built to a likely far higher standard than those that rolled off the production line in period.

The Biancospino paintwork is in excellent condition, it’s accentuated by a ceramic coating, applied in 2021 alongside a three-stage paint correction. All four GTA style wheels are in excellent condition, and are shod in matching rubber. The brightwork offers a deep and lucious gleam and goes further to compliment the excellent paintwork.

Step inside over the Alfa Romeo branded sill steps and you’ll find a Nardi deep-dish steering wheel, and a steering wheel spacer that improves the Alfa’s standard slightly awkward driving position. Despite this upgrade, the original wheel is included with the vehicle. The black seats are in excellent condition and are paired with contrasting grey wool mats which were specially imported from Cocomats. The later-type GTV dash is in excellent shape and contributes to a heady mix of chrome and wood. Turn the key, and any thoughts of wood-trim will soon depart.

Under the bonnet, you won't find just any standard 1750 engine, you’ll find an overbored 1870cc unit, fitted with twin Dellorto 40 carburetors and a pipercross performance air filter. The larger capacity bottom end has been expertly balanced, and assembled using King racing bearings, ARP fasteners and JE pistons. To the top of the engine, you’ll find a re-worked cylinder head to ensure optimal gas flow and uprated Alfaholics camshafts, mated to that a full manifold to tip Alfaholics stainless steel sports exhaust system.

All of this work was completed by marque specialists Alex Jupe Motorsport Ltd. The upgrades result in an impressive 152bhp on a rolling road, these upgrades are not common on GTVs, and we think this is one of very few “big-bore” 1750 GTVs in the UK. The combination of raucous noise, and increased power make this GTV an utter joy to drive.

In excess of £30,000 has been spent with Alex Jupe Motorsport alone to ensure this is one of the best GTVs on UK roads. This does not include the money that was also spent elsewhere at the body shop having the shell restored and repainted. This example, as a MKII, benefits from twin servo assistance and comes supplied with an extensive collection of invoices, records, restoration photographs and an all important Alfa Romeo Classic certificate of originality, verifying its numbers matching originality.

It is supplied with its original and its original highly desirable 5-digit UK registration, ATR5K.

As with all our vehicles, a full digital folder is available on request containing more images, walk-around videos, and scans of the service history. The car can also be viewed by appointment at our West London showroom.
