The Alfa Romeo Alfasud – An Italian Classic From The 70s

Classic Cars

The Alfa Romeo Alfasud is an Italian beauty first manufactured in 1971, maintaining production up until 1989. This classic Alfa is the perfect family car or collector automobile for any petrol head interested in Italian classics. This year we at PM Antiques have introduced vintage automobilia to our stock which has proven successful and a very popular category within our stock. The Alfa Romeo Alfasud is no exception.


The History Of Alfa Romeo

Alfa Romeo has been thrilling drivers since 1910. Founded in Italy originally as ‘ALFA’, (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili). At the start of the 1970s, Alfa Romeo changed the automotive world by launching the Alfasud, now a must-have classic car. This front-wheel-drive hatchback delivered a sports-car driving experience to complement its dynamic appearance. It signalled the arrival of the modern-day Alfa Romeo – a practical, everyday car that was extraordinary in performance and design. This extended through the second-generation Giulietta, introduced in 1977, and the first-ever turbo-diesel Alfa Romeo in 1979, as well as the wedge-shaped saloons of the Eighties, including the 33, the 75 and the 164. Additional information can be found here.



Despite its small engine size, the Alfasud compromises with its superb handling, brakes and high-speed cruising capabilities. The smaller engine boasts an impressive 1.5 litre producing 95 BHP 5-speed manual transmission. Allowing the car to travel from 0-60 in 10.2 seconds. Even though this is a vintage automobile its stats could contend with cars with today’s technology.



Showing no signs of accident damage or corrosion, this Alfasud is quite simply a time-warp example. As a result of meticulous maintenance, the car has had no MoT advisories recorded in the past 15 years and notably featured in the February 2000 issue of Auto Italia magazine. In 1999 the ‘Sud benefitted from an engine rebuild and has only travelled around 15,000 miles since with recurring periods spent in storage.
