1750 and 2000

1750 4 cyl., 1779 cm³, 118 cv (DIN) - discontinued
2000 4 cyl., 1962 cm³, 130 cv (DIN) - new model
  Berlina wb: 2570 mm

In 1971, the 1750 Berlina was fitted with an experimental three-speed ZF automatic gearbox. The model designation was 1750A Berlina. The automatic gearbox wasn't well-suited to the four-cylinder motor due to baulky shifting and ill-chosen gear ratio. Because of this, its fuel consumption was frighteningly high and acceleration was a bit too slow. 252 units were produced.
During the year the 1750 gave way to the 2000 Berlina. Some 83 final 1750 Berlinas were assembled in 1972.
A different grill and external lights distinguishes 2000 from 1750. With two carburetors, the 2 litre Twin Cam engine produces 132 bhp). Top speed is 200 km/h (124 mph). In USA this engine is equipped with mechanical fuel injection. Gearbox is 5-speed manual or 3-speed automatic.

Montreal

Montreal  V8 cyl., 90°, 2593 cm³ 200 cv  
  Coupé  wb: 2350 mm

Tipo 105.64 the Montreal was shown at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show and was quite different from the original prototype seen at Expo in 1967. The production model is using a 2593 cc 90° dry-sump lubricated V8 engine with SPICA (Società Pompe Iniezione Cassani & Affini) fuel injection that produces around 200 bhp, coupled to a five-speed ZF manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. This engine was derived from the 2-litre V8 used in the 33 Stradale and in the Tipo 33 sports prototype racer, revving up to 7,000 rpm. The chassis and running gear of the production Montreal are taken from the Giulia GTV coupé and comprise double wishbone suspension with coil springs and dampers at the front and a live axle with limited slip differential at the rear.

 

Alfasud

Alfasud  B4 cyl., 1186 cm³ 63 cv - new model
  Berlina wb: 2455 mm    

The Alfasud was shown at the Turin Motor Show and was immediately praised by journalists for its styling. The four-door saloon features an 1,186 cc Boxer water-cooled engine with a belt-driven overhead camshaft on each block. It also has an elaborate suspension setup for a car in its class (MacPherson struts at the front and beam axle with Watt's linkage at the rear). Other unusual features for this size of car are four-wheel disc brakes (with the front ones being inboard) and rack and pinion steering.
The engine design allows the Alfasud a low bonnet line, making it very aerodynamic, and in addition gives it a low centre of gravity. As a result of these design features, the car has an excellent performance for its engine size, and levels of roadholding and handling that would not be equaled in its class. Despite its two-box shape, the Alfasud is not a hatchback. Some of the controls were unorthodox, the lights, indicators, horn, wipers and heater fan all being operated by pulling, turning or pushing the two column stalks.
