Bid On This Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce, Make Other Car Enthusiasts Jealous

This is a 1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce, also known as the 2000 GTV. It replaced the older 1750 model in the early 70s, featuring increased engine displacement, a new grille, smaller hubcaps and significantly larger rear lights.

Some say it’s one of the most beautiful two-door coupes ever built, which automatically makes you one of the most interesting people around if you just happen to show up driving one at a car meet or at a get-together with your friends.

According to the Bring a Trailer ad, this Alfa has underwent a lot of “revitalizing” procedures, such as having its 2.0-liter four-pot rebuilt and its interior overhauled. Other changes include the upgraded brakes, custom shocks, new paint and a set of GTA wheels.

The only things wrong with it are the minor corrosion on the front grille, rock chips around the front bumper and another chip on the driver-side rear view mirror. Niggles, really, that can easily be shorted out if they bother you too much.

Inside, the seats have been reupholstered with black leather matching the original pattern, and a new headliner was installed along with wool carpets.

As for the twin-cam 2.0-liter inline-four engine, it shows 79,000 miles (127,138 km) and was rebuilt by Normal Racing, who installed Bosch pistons, a new exhaust system and a Shankle air box.

While there’s no telling how much power the car produces now, when it was new, it put down around 130 horses, which wasn’t bad considering how it only weighed around one tonne (2,204 lbs).

At the point of writing this article, the highest bid was $15,000 and there were four days left until the auction closes. We wouldn’t say that $15k is a small sum, but if you love classic Italian cars with a rich pedigree, this could be a relatively affordable way (compared to the sky-high prices some exotics command) to get into that exclusive club with a nicely restored Alfa.

    Why is there no car manufacturer today who could replicate the simplicity and brilliance of this car? All you need is a light RWD platform, 1.6-2.0L engine with at least 175HP. 6spd, ac and a radio with AUX outlet. It would sell like hotcakes! Potential donor cars would be the Toyota/Subie twins would be ideal- lose the back seat and remove the glitter.

      because no one would buy it. Ex. FRS/BRZ

        The toyobaru twins and the MX5 are exactly that.

          They are not. And read my comment (simplicity) again. All 3 cars have far too much luxury to be considered modern day GTV’s.

  • 15k for clean GTV? Want that!
