Alfasud Sprint z silnikiem 1,3 litra, 75 KM we wrześniu.
Luksusowy Alfasud 5m sedan z 5-biegową skrzynią.
The Lusso model was replaced with the new Alfasud 5m (5 marce - five speed) model, the first four-door Alfasud with a five-speed gearbox. Presented at the March 1976 Geneva Motor Show, it is equipped like the Lusso it replaced.
The four-speed saloon seen here, is joined by the 5m with the five-speed gearbox as previously reserved for the fast ti saloon, with its special carburetter and rear spoiler. Fifth speed is geared up to give quiet fast cruising on low fuel consumption. The engine is a flat four with two belt-driven overhead camshafts driving the front wheels. The new coupe by Giugiaro is out too, with 1,286 c.c. engine.

Giulia Nuova Super Diesel is fitted with a Perkins 1,760 cc diesel for 55 bhp at 4000 rpm. It is Alfa Romeo first attempt at diesel power. The same Perkins diesel was used also in Alfa Romeo F12 van. The diesel version is heavy and underowered, capable of 138 km/h (86 mph), and the engine is somehow unsuitable for a sport sedan. Only around 6500 examples were made.
In total 402 examples of the 1600 were made, the last one being produced in 1973.
The 1.8 was end of prod. in favour of the 1.6-litre (1,570 cc) Alfetta GT 1.6 and 2.0-litre (1,962 cc) Alfetta GTV 2.0. At the same time some updates were introduced, such as a new front grille with horizontal slats and two series of vents beneath it. The GTV is distinguished from the 1.6 version by twin chrome whiskers in the grille and GTV scripts carved in the ventilation vents on the C-pillar.
ALFA ROMEO ALFETTA GT/GTV £3,799
Launched in 1974 with a 1.8-litre engine, this striking Giugiaro-designed coupe is now made in two versions, GT with 1.6-litre unit and GTV with 2 litres. Both engines have twin overhead camshafts. The GTV has revised grille, new wheels. The air grilles in the rear quarters have gone, the interior is still more luxurious. Transmission is by five-speed gearbox at the rear; the GT has a lower axle ratio.

The Alfasud Sprint was prestented to the press in September 1976 in Baia Domizia (Caserta) and shown at the Turin Motor Show in November. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro like the Alfasud, whose mechanicals it is based on, it has a lower, more angular design, featuring a hatchback (although no folding rear seats). The Alfasud Sprint is assembled together with the Alfasud in the Pomigliano d'Arco plant, located in southern Italy—hence the original "Sud" moniker, which means south in Italian.
Under the bonnet there is a new version of the Alfasud's 1186 cc four-cylinder boxer engine, stroked to displace 1,286 cc, fed by a twin-choke carburator and developing 76 bhp at 6,000 rpm. Mated to the flat-four is a five-speed, all-synchromesh gearbox. The interior is upholstered in dark brown Texalfa leatherette and tartan cloth. Options are limited to alloy wheels, a quartz clock and metallic paint.
