The Alfa Romeo 1750/2000 was a medium-priced range of cars presented in 1967 by Alfa Romeo.

The 1750 Berlina sedan was introduced in 1967, together with the 1750 GTV coupe and 2000 Spider. The 1750 models replaced the earlier 2600 Berlina, Sprint and Spider at the top of the Alfa Romeo range. In contrast to the 2600's, the 1750's were smaller and much less expensive, shared many parts with other concurrent models in the Alfa Romeo range, and sold many more units during their production span.

The 1750 Berlina was based on the existing Giulia sedan, which continued in production. The 1750 was meant to top the sedan range, above the 1300cc and 1600cc versions of the Giulia. In the United States, however, the Giulia sedan ceased to be available and was entirely replaced by the 1750 Berlina.

The 1750 bodyshell had a longer wheelbase than the Giulia, and revised external panels, but it shared many of the same internal panels. The windscreen was also the same.

The sedan's body shape, designed by Bertone, resembled the Giulia, but with some of that vehicle's distinctive creases smoothed out, and with significant changes to the trim details. The car had 1779 cc twin-carb engine and hydraulic clutch. The 1.8 L engine was producing Auto PS|118 with two twin sidedraught carburettors. For USA markets the 1750 was equipped with SPICA fuel injection.

In 1971, the 1750 Berlina was fitted with experimental 3-speed ZF automatic gearbox. The model designation was 1750A Berlina. Between 249 and 251 were produced with very few surviving to this day. Some of 1750A Berlina didn't have the model plate with production date embossed. The automatic gearbox wasn't well-suited to the four-cylinder motor due to baulky shifting and ill-chosen gear ratio. Because of this, its fuel consumption was frighteningly high and acceleration bit too slow.

In 1972 the 1750 series was replaced with the 2000 series, with approximately 100,000 units being produced.Cite web|url=http://www.carsfromitaly.net/alfaromeo/index.html|title=Alfa Romeo Berlina|accessdate=2007-09-03|work=carsfromitaly.net]

2000

2000 series Berlina was made by Alfa Romeo between 1971-1977. Engine was bored and stroked out to 2.0 L now. Easiest way to separate 2000 from 1750 is different grill. With two carburetors this 1962 cc twincam engine produced Auto PS|132. Top speed was Auto kmh|200 and acceleration took 9 seconds 0-100 km/h. In USA this was equipped with mechanical fuel injection. Transmission was 5-speed manual (also 3-speed automatic on some versions). The 2000 Berlina was produced 89,840 examples.
