Alfa Romeo was riding high and introduced the Berlina 2000 in 1971 as an improved version of the already popular Berlina, offering more power, performance and gusto.

The Italian carmaker introduced the Berlina range in 1968 with a lively 1.8 litre engine, and it thought it should be enough. In times when cars usually did the zero-to-sixty (0-97 km/h) in 15 seconds or more, any car that could get into the ten-second range was considered fast, at least after European standards. But then, the customers asked for more and, in 1971, Alfa Romeo introduced the 2000 version.

Designed by the 30 year old Giorgetto Giugiaro from Bertone Studios, the Berlina 2000 looked almost the same as the 1750 Berlina. Its front fascia was slightly different, though. It featured four equally sized headlights 146mm and a completely black grille surrounding the Alfa Romeo shield badge. Its slightly raked windshield opened the way to a roomy greenhouse with big side windows. From its profile, the cab-rearward design evoked the rear-wheel-drive architecture.

Inside, the carmaker offered a spacious cabin for five, thanks to its long wheelbase and almost vertical side panels. An instrument cluster raised in front of the driver featuring the big dials for the tachometer and speedometer. The carmaker mounted three other additional gauges on the dash panel's front side. Depending on the options, a centre console hosted the gear-selector for the automatic transmission or the gear-stick that popped out through the floor.

Under the hood, Alfa Romeo installed a 2.0 litre engine fed by two Weber carburettors. The carmaker paired it to a five-speed manual gearbox or a three-speed automatic. Its coil-spring suspension in all corners ensured both a comfortable ride and good cornering speed abilities.

This charming example is equipped with the automatic transmission and you will be pleasantly surprised by just how modern and spritely the car feels to drive today, both in everyday traffic and out on the open road. With 2 whole folders of historical information along with its original books and manual, this Alfa has nothing to hide. It is evident that no expense has been spared in ensuring it’s mechanical and cosmetic presentation are second to none, and we can confidently say that this adorable little Alfa is a genuine turnkey classic that you can enjoy right away and for many years to come!
