14. Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV Tipo 105
One of the most iconic Italian sports coupes is the beautiful Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupe. Car fans often called it the Tipo 105 Coupe for its chassis code. This was a Bertone-designed two-door version of the legendary Giulia sedan that was Alfa’s main model during the ’60s. They introduced it in 1963 under the name, the Giulia Sprint GT. And this little Alfa stunned the car world with its sculptured lines and perfect stance. Under the hood was a small 1.6-liter four-cylinder twin-cam engine with an advertised 105 HP. The Tipo 105 had a live rear axle and four-wheel disc brakes, unheard of in the mid-1960s (via Italclassic).
Over the years, its power grew to 1.8-liters and 2.0-liters in later models. You can recognize the final versions by the four headlights, wider taillights, and 2000 GTV badge. Those cars have 136 HP and a glorious soundtrack thanks to the high revving, all-alloy engine. Alfa Romeo Tipo 105 Coupes were inexpensive, but in recent years, the price spike has affected this model. Despite getting more expensive, they are still affordable. For around $30,000, you can find a perfect example of this little Italian gem, which fans call “the poor man’s Ferrari.”
