The Alfetta GTV is a 4 seater fastback coupé designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro at Italdesign. Introduced in 1974.

It was initially available only with the 1.8 litre (1,779 cc) version of the Alfa DOHC four. These engines featured a chain driven 8-valve twin overhead cam cylinder head of cross-flow design breathing through two DellOrto carburettors. Later the cylinder was taken out to two-litres and power was increased to a passionate 130 horsepower at 5500 rpm.

The Alfetta introduced a new drivetrain layout to the marque. Clutch and transmission were housed at the rear of the car, together with the differential for a more balanced weight distribution, as used on the Alfetta 158/159 Grand Prix cars. The suspension relied on double wishbones and torsion bars at the front and a De Dion tube at the rear. The rear de Dion transaxle found on the Alfetta and derivatives- GTV, 90 and 75- provided these cars with excellent weight distribution.

In 1979, some minor revisions, including a revised engine with new camshaft profiles and a change to mechanical-and-vacuum ignition advance, saw the 2.0-litre redesignated the Alfetta GTV 2000L. The styling of the GTV, while distinctive, can be seen to share many design features derived from the Montreal supercar, as translated down to a simpler and thus more marketable vehicle.

Delivered new by Frank Croft Motors on Parramatta Road in 1979 to Signore Domenico Inzitare, this undeniably cool classic has had the attention it deserves from all its previous owners.

Accompanied with all its original service books and owners manuals all in pristine condition, the provenance of this particular Alfetta is most attractive to the serious collectors and Alfa aficionados.

With such low kms, the car drives beautifully. The unique sound of the famous twin-cam Alfa motor together with the strong smooth gear changes and tight suspension makes for a very engaging and passionate driving experience.

The retro/art-deco interior finishes off the GTV perfectly and the condition is very close to what would be found in a brand new car on the showroom floor.

With the next generation entering the car culture society and the classics from the 110 year old Milanese Automobile Manufacture rapidly growing in value and popularity, this lovely Italian machine makes for a great opportunity which can also be enjoyed on the way.
