1972-1984 ALFA ROMEO Alfetta specifications


Alfa Romeo’s first new big saloon of the ’70s marked something of a departure from its predecessors. Boasting a new platform that would last for well over two decades, all the ingredients were there for a great sporting saloon: a range of twin-cam engines and a transaxle gearbox for perfect weight distribution. Build quality was variable, with the earliest cars the most solidly assembled, but a bigger problem was corrosion. Rare today, not fully understood, and perhaps more deserving of its own accolades than being known as the saloon that begat the GTV.
