Produced for seven years between 1970-1977, this Alfa Romeo model called the Montreal was a 2+2 coupé sports car.
Designed by Marcello Gandini who was then working for the famous Italian design house Bertone, how this car got her model name is interesting. The same goes with the headlamps design as well as provision of ducts on the bonnet,
- this model was first displayed as a concept car at an auto show in Montreal, Canada. As names of the models were then kept secret, this model that was nicknamed ‘Montreal’ was so much liked by the visiting public, that Alfa Romeo decided to retain the name once the first car rolled out of the production line in 1970.
- the headlamps were partially covered by a grille-like cover that retracted once the lights were switched on.
- this car had NASA (earlier known as NACA) influenced toughened plastic ducts (on the bonnet), a technology meant to be used for aircraft that was found out to be the best design for channelling air with the lowest-drag.
