Description

The two-door coupe versions of the Alfa Romeo Giulia in the 60s and 70s are among the most exciting sports models of the period and undoubtedly – among the eternal automotive designs by Bertone. It’s not only aesthetics. The relatively low weight, advanced aluminium DOHC engine, and the excellent weight distribution turned Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce into a pure driving machine, raced by privateers in competitions like Targa Florio. In 1976, Pietro and Vincenzo Donato ran their 2000 GTV to the 5th overall position and 1st in class. We are more than happy to share with you this beautiful Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV poster by Džiugas Valančauskas with you.

This Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV poster is a beautiful reminder of the epic racing heritage

2000 GTV was the final edition of the 105 coupes that started its production life as Giulia Sprint GT. Its dual camshaft engine had increased capacity up to 2 litres. They were enough for 130 hp at 5500 rpm with the SPICA fuel injections, available only to US and Canadian customers. The cars sold in other markets relied on classic carburettors giving the same output. The curb weight of this Alfa is way above 1000 kg, keeping its agile and nimble nature.

The interior of the 2000 GTV has some changes, most notably the separate instrument cluster which replaced gauges installed directly in the dash panel of earlier cars. Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV was easily distinguished from its predecessors by the horizontal chrome bars located on the grille. Some of the vehicles were sold with optional “Turbina” alloy wheels, the same size as the standard 14-inch wheels and first seen on Alfa Romeo Montreal. 37 459 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV are made in total. The rarest of them all are those one built in 1975 for the American market. It seemed that they wouldn’t pass the emission test, so the very few examples were sold as 1974 models.

This sleek Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV poster created by Dziugas Valancauskas is telling the story of a racing pedigree you can do nothing but respect. Now you can make it yours as flawless Alfa Romeo poster, carefully issued by Simply Petrol.

It was 1996. She, a BMW e30 M3, stood provocatively in the street near my block of flats. My first love, she opened my eyes and ripped my heart apart. I could only stand and stare. Touching her was forbidden. My first time happened at school when with my bare hands I squeezed the wheel of a 325i. Why do we always want what’s out of reach? From that moment on, the BMW 3-series coupe became a hole in my heart which I knew I would have to one day fill. The second hole was punched by a Lancia Delta Integrale and the list just kept growing. When, after many years of searching, I found my own BMW e30 325i coupe, I was as happy as a child again. I could sit for hours and breathe in the combined aroma of upholstery, grease and petrol. Every classic car has that same smell, but each one is a little different. Out of this love was born PETROL ODOUR – classic cars drawn while breathing in their smell.

This is the story of an award-winning graphic designer from Vilnius, Lithuania. Meet Džiugas Valančauskas and his epic PETROL ODOUR series.
