The Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo introduced the “Montreal” model car at the 67 Expo in 1967, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It was one of two concept cars, which were released without a model name. The general public simply referred to them as the Montreal. When the car went into full production, in 1970, they kept the moniker as the model name.
True to its racing roots, the Montreal was fast and sporty. It took design elements from its popular Giulietta cars and blended it with modern design and technology. One interesting visual characteristic that distinguishes it from their other cars were the striking vents behind the side windows. These were however just cosmetic.
It had a SPICA fuel injected 2.6 L 2,593 cc (158.2 cu in) quad-cam 90° V8 engine. It red lined at 7000 RPM, which was extremely high for its day and age. It had power as well, with
200 PS (147 kW; 197 hp) (230 bhp SAE) at 6500 rpm. It had a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph) and could do 0–100 km/h (62mph) in 7.4 seconds. It’s standing quarter mile (~400m) time was only 15.1 seconds. This performance came with a hefty price tag. The price in the UK was GB£5,077 to GB£5,549, which was more than the cost of a Porsche 911 or a Jaguar E-type.
Interestingly, no Montreal cars were actually sold in Montreal. The car failed to meet emissions standards for the US and Canada, so they were only sold in the European markets.
