At the 1967 World's Fair in Montreal, Canada, one of the stars of the show was the study of a sports car. The trade fair organizers had commissioned this from Alfa Romeo to stage the car as an industrial production item.

The Italians did not have to be asked twice, commissioned the design company Bertone with the implementation and sent two coupes to Canada, which made a powerful impression.

Placed between mirrors in such a way that they seemed to multiply to infinity, the Alfas became a major attraction for visitors. "And with each day of the six-month exhibition, Alfa Romeo receives more inquiries from North America and the rest of the world to develop the Expo eye-catcher into series production," said Alfa spokeswoman Anne Wollek. The sports car premiered as Montreal in March 1970 at the Geneva Motor Show.

Short career - long legend

Although his career was neither easy nor particularly long, says Alfa Romeo expert Hartmut Stöppel from Bonn. But maybe that's why Montreal has become a legend. "There are many famous Alfas, some are sportier than the Montreal, some are more exclusive and many have been more commercially successful," says Stöppel. "But as one of the coolest coupes from the 1970s, the Montreal has a place of honor in this exclusive family."

was drawn by Montreal Marcello Gandini. The then 30-year-old was still at the beginning of his career, in which he was to draw the Lancia Stratos or Lamborghini Countach, for example. But he had already made a name for himself with the Lamborghini Miura.

On an underbody of the mid-range sedan Giulia, he designed an angular-cool coupé of 4.22 meters, which looked unique from every perspective and was unmistakable at second glance at the latest. The slats in front of the headlights, the ventilation grilles behind the doors, the hood in the bonnet: This had never happened before - and never again afterwards.

The Queen's Official Birthday , or the King 's Official Birthday , is the selected day in some Commonwealth realms on which the birthday of the monarch is officially celebrated in those countries.

So when Paris celebrated its 2,000th birthday July 8, 1951, it was a big deal. But it was not a foregone conclusion that France or any part of it would still be around in the early 1950s. The Franks’ King Clovis went back to the future, giving a nod to the B.C. Gaul tribe of Parisii and renaming Lutetia Paris.

A lot remained on the way to series production.

The engineers developed the concept further on the way to series production. Although the car is always said to have a mid-engine, the Giuli front-engine concept remained the same for cost reasons. The gills on the flank survived as a pure styling detail. And although there was plenty of struggle with the regulatory authorities, even the coupe's bedroom eyes have survived.

The V8 engine is an organ donation from the racing model Typo 33. "However, the Italians have somewhat domesticated the wild engine," says Stöppel. The Montreal was to become a Gran Turismo for brisk connoisseurs and not a racing car for hectic racers.

The displacement was therefore increased from 2.0 to 2.6 liters, and the output was throttled in return: instead of 191 kW / 260 hp, 147 kW / 200 hp were now in the data sheet. But that was also enough for respectable driving performance: With 7.6 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h and a top speed of 219 km / h, the King of Cool also maintained in the left lane. This also had its price, which was 35,000 Deutschmarks at the beginning of 1971. A Porsche 911 S was 7,000 D-Mark cheaper there, says Stöppel.

Better to travel than speed

If you want to drive the Montreal, you first have to get used to the unusual design of the transmission, in which the first gear is at the bottom left. This is another greeting from motorsport because you rarely need it in the race.

The steering requires well-trained arms. In spite of the limited slip differential on the driven rear axle, the Alfa acknowledges overly sharp curves with dance inserts of the fiery kind and the chassis with its rigid axle in the rear quickly turns out to be out of tune on bad slopes.

But if you want to travel instead of racing, you will enjoy yourself in Montreal - and still get to your destination quickly. An excursion with the Alfa is an experience for all the senses.

The Montreal is rare

However, only a few enjoy this benefit, Alfa connoisseur Stöppel has to admit. Because the Italians not only needed a long three years to debut the production model and then another nine months until the first delivery in early 1971. The production itself also stalled again and again.

When the Montreal finally expires in 1977, the counter ended up with only 3925 copies. Incidentally, the two specimens from Montreal are now parked in the Alfa factory museum near Milan.
