The Bertone styled Alfa Romeo Montreal was first seen at the Expo 67, held in Montreal, Canada. The original concept was not called the Montreal, but the car quickly became known as such.

In 1970 the first production Alfa Romeo Montreal was revealed at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show. The Montreal was powered by a 2.6 litre V8 engine which developed 200 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm, and 175 lb-ft of torque @ 4750 rpm. This was mated to a ZF 5-speed manual gearbox driving the rear wheels. This drivetrain gave the Alfa Romeo Montreal a 0-60 mph time of around 7.4 seconds, and a top speed of 137 mph.

The suspension and drivetrain of the Alfa Romeo Montreal comprised of double wishbone suspension with coil springs and dampers at the front, and a live axle with limited slip differential at the rear.

Unusual and striking design features of the Alfa Romeo Montreal include the headlights which are partially covered by slats, these retract when the lights are switched on to increase the beam distance. The six parallel openings behind the side windows hide vents for airing out the cabin, while also providing a styling feature.

The Alfa Romeo Montreal was discontinued in 1977. In total just under 4,000 cars were produced.
