Featuring a drivetrain layout that Alfa Romeo had last used on its all-conquering Tipo 158/159 Grand Prix cars, the Alfetta saloon was launched in 1972. Based around a monocoque bodyshell, the newcomer was equipped with independent torsion-bar front suspension, a De Dion back axle, rack-and-pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes. Boasting excellent weight distribution thanks to its rear-mounted five-speed transaxle, the Alfetta was initially powered by a 1779cc version of Alfa Romeo's famous four-cylinder 'twin-cam' engine. Widely praised by the contemporary motoring press for its handling and roadholding, the three-box saloon spawned a two-door fastback coupe variant in 1974. Penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Alfetta GT was shorter, lighter and more aerodynamic (0.39 cd) than its sibling. Arriving during 1976, the range-topping Alfetta 2000 GTV was reputedly capable of over 120mph and helped Autodelta win the Group 2 (sub-2500cc) division of that season's European Touring Car Championship. Facelifted in 1980 and renamed the GTV 2.0 accordingly, the wedge-shaped four-seater remained in production for another seven years. Though, right-hand drive variants have always been something of a rarity.

A true ‘timewarp’, this exceptional example has been in single family ownership and covered a mere 48,000 miles from new. Purchased by the late A. Richardson Esq from Bridge Motors of Braintree, they carried out the Pre-Delivery Inspection check at 531 miles with further services following at 3,101, 8,527, 20,736, 32,223, 37,416 and 43,517 miles. Although company registered at different times, the Alfa was Mr Richardson’s 'pride and joy' and he its only driver. Kept garaged throughout its life, the Coupe remains in remarkably original condition. The period-perfect interior features a wood-rimmed steering wheel, wooden gearknob, Black cloth-faced seats, fishnet headrests and rectangular instrument surrounds. Touch points such as the pedal rubbers and seat belts corroborate the low mileage. The fifteen-inch alloy wheels are shod with Goodyear tyres, while the engine bay still shows plentiful traces of the anti-corrosion treatment that the car received some forty-one years ago. The website howmanyleft.co.uk suggests that there are only forty-seven 1983 GTV 2.0s currently known to the DVLA. We doubt that any are better than ‘KVW 147Y’. Worthy of close inspection, this exquisite Alfa is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, owner’s manual, service book, anti-corrosion book and fresh MOT certificate. Go find another!
