The GTV was a Giulia-based model made by Italian automaker Alfa Romeo between the years of 1967 and 1976. It was part of Alfa’s 105/115 series. GTV stands for Gran Turismo Veloce, which refers to its racing heritage.
The basic body shape was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Bertone. It took elements from his earlier designs, such as the Alfa Romeo 2000 Sprint and the 2600 Sprint. The styling was considered revolutionary at the time. These cars were the successors to the Giulietta Sprint coupé and used a shortened floorpan from the Giulia saloon sedan.
The 1966 Giulia Sprint GT was updated and upgraded to become the GT Veloce. Though similar, the GTV contained a great number of improvements, such as a more powerful engine with more torque.
The GTV was a 2-door coupe body type, with RWD (rear-wheel drive), a manual 5-speed gearbox. It ran on a petrol (gasoline) engine and had a displacement of 1779 cm3 or 108.5 cid. Its advertised power was 83 97 kW / 111 130 hp / 113 132 PS ( DIN SAE ), with a torque of 170 186 Nm / 125 137 lb-ft. Its top speed, as declared by the factory was 190 km/h (118 mph.) It had good acceleration. It could do 0- 60 mph in 9.1 seconds and 0- 100 km/h 9.7 seconds. Its 1/4 mile drag was time (402 m) 16.9 seconds.
The total production of Giulia Sprint GT Veloce amounted to 14,240 cars.1,407 of these were right hand drive cars, and 332 right hand drive complete knock-down kits, to be assembled by race teams and custom coach builders.
