Gotta love those fully radiussed air horns ....

Looks like export spec headlights.

Home market cars had prettier lights.

Love the home market look...Even more quirky. With the notorious complex Citroen suspension etc. and the Maserati lump they must be a hell of $, €, £ or even ¥ to maintain.

The SM was used by police on highways in France...

I drove one, long time ago.

It was amazing with the brake pedal : the look and feel was the same as the alfa 105 washer pump

Garage
Automatic windshield wipers. Before digital anything.
“Cassette” ignition points. Plug and play.
No jack included. Built into the suspension.
Aluminum hood. Please don’t lean on it.
Euro version had steerable headlights.
I think at least the early versions used a single-row timing chain. To drive four cams. Notice the chain runs BETWEEN the cylinder banks.
Weird brake feel. Not a pedal.... a squishy button.
Wonderful seats and seating position. If you bring your own padding and have Velcro sewed onto your but.

You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...
