The Alfa Romeo Montreal was a coupe automobile introduced as a concept car in 1967 at Montreal’s Expo 67, and produced by the Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo from 1970 to 1977. Only four Alfa Romeo Montreals were sold to buyers in Montreal, Quebec. The Alfa Romeo Montreal remained generally unchanged until it was discontinued in 1977.

It was a 2+2 coupe using the 1600 cc engine and chassis of the Alfa Romeo Giulia, with a body designed by Marcello Gandini at Bertone. The first production car was shown at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show and was quite different from the original, using a 2593 cc V8 engine with SPICA fuel injection that produced around 200 bhp, coupled to a five-speed ZF gearbox and a limited-slip differential. This engine dated back to the mid-1960s, having been used by Alfa Romeo in prototype racing and in the 33 Stradale. The chassis and running gear of the production Alfa Romeo Montreal were taken from the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTV coupé and comprised double wishbone suspension with coil springs and dampers at the front and a live axle with limited slip differential at the rear.
