Car Of The Day – Alfa Romeo Montreal At Auction

by Mike –

Produced from 1970 to 1977 the beautiful little Alfa Romeo Montreal was not imported to North America even though the model is named after a city in Canada. The design was introduced in Montreal as a concept car and the name, Montreal, stuck as the model name. There were 3,917 made and they are now being seen as interesting collector cars.

The styling is by Marcello Gandini (Bertone) and resembles other Gandini designs such as the Iso Lele and the Lamborghini Jarama. All of these designs use the partially covered headlights which make the car look like it is almost asleep. The series 2 Iso Grifo also incorporated this Gandini style.

The Bonhams auction in Scottsdale, Arizona on January 28, 2016 has this Alfa Romeo Montreal on the schedule.
