Montreal – Alfa Romeo

The Alfa Romeo Montreal was a concept car introduced at the Expo 67 in 1967 held in Montreal, Canada. With no confirmed model name the public had taken to calling it ‘The Montreal’. Production of the car didn’t start until 1970 where the car was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show. The production version varied from the original shown in 1967 with a 2.6 litre, V8 dry-sump, fuel injected engine the Montreal produced 197hp. Initially priced at just over £5,000 it was more expensive than a Jaguar E-Type and the Porsche 911.
