When Alfa Romeo introduced the Coupe version
of the Giulia sedan in 1963 a true star was born. Its
lines were penned by a young designer at Bertone; Giorgietto
Giugiaro, 'the designer of the 20th century'.
The Giulia not only looked good but it also proved a great
competitor in touring car racing.
In the 14 years it was produced the lines changed little
- but under the body it was consistently being worked
on, with engines varying in size from 1.3 to 2.0 liter.
The 2000 GTV was the final version and replaced the 1750
GTV. The main differences between the two were the bored
engine and a restyled front grill.
Changes from the 1750 GTV
included revisions to the interior trim, and the introduction of a single instrument cluster (instead of the beautiful seperate in dash design). In all, some 37,459 2000 GTV's were made before production ended in 1977.
