Introduced in 1967, the 1750 GT Veloce replaced the Giulia Sprint GTV as Alfa Romeo's 105 Series pinup. The sought-after series of coupes, produced between 1963 and 1977 were all crafted by celebrated Bertone designer, Giorgetto Giugiaro, who would later go on to style an army of Alfa and non-Alfa classics including the BMW M1 and the Lotus Esprit. Despite its many similarities to its fellow 105s, the 1750 GTV represented a significant upgrade on its predecessors. Style-wise, it featured a brand new nose that dispensed with the "stepped hood" -- characteristic of the series up to that point -- and an extra pair of headlights, while underneath it sported a highly-modified chassis and revised suspension geometry. It also packed more power, with its all-alloy 132-bhp, 1.8-liter Alfa Romeo Twin Cam engine able to take it from 0-60 mph in 11.2 seconds and to a top speed of 118 mph. This performance came at a price, with the 1750 GTV offered in the same price bracket as the Jaguar E-Type, but its popularity -- over 44,000 were sold during its five-year lifetime -- reflected its innate desirability.
