The QV ‘Potenziata’ was the top of the line model introduced in 1989 in the Alfa Romeo 75 range, which was designed by head of Alfa Romeo Centro Stile Ermanno Cressoni, and powered by the very famous Guiseppe Busso designed 3.0lt V6 engine.

There were around 40-50 QV Potenziata spec vehicles imported to Australia of which approximately 10-12 remain on the road.   The limited number of Right Hand Drive versions produced worldwide contributes to their desirability these days as a classic collectable.

This particular car is very special. It is one of the few 75 QV Potenziatas remaining that is completely original.  It was sold in 1990 by Brian Foley Alfa in Penshurst Sydney to a Medical Practitioner who drove it for 25 years, running up only 95000 kilometres during that time. 

The car was fastidiously maintained during that time and garaged all its life, with all receipts kept.  The current owner has further restored this Potenziata to Concours winning level.  It has original log books, matching original chassis and engine numbers, and genuine log booked 113214kms.

This ‘Potenziata’ is a Concours and Show ‘n Shine winner:
1.   2017 Queensland (Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Lancia) Concours D’Elegance class winner and highest point score (260/285) for all entries (46)
2.   2017 Class winner Festival of Italian Motorsports Show ‘n Shine Willowbank
3.   2016 Class winner Festival of Italian Motorsports Show ‘n Shine Lakeside
4.   2016 Fiat Nationals Show ‘n Shine – Best Alfa Romeo

Genuine enquiries only please – there are high quality photos including a video of the car and an interview with the owner at www.marquephotography.com.au/1990-alfa-romeo-75-qv.
Price $38000

Hi fellow Alfisti
My Potenziata sold yesterday to a Sydney collector for $35k - "Roxanne" as she was known has gone to a good home and will probably turn up at Spettacolo later this year with the new owner.
On to my next project "Lola" ("walks like a woman and talks like a man" as the song goes!) an Alfetta GTV6 previously owned by Jason Wishart in Brisbane.
Best wishes to all my friends in AROCA Vic.
Cheers
Pete
