Description

With the introduction of the Bertone-styled Giulietta Sprint in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the ‘small car, big performance’ formula that would characterise the Milanese marque’s finest offerings from then on.

Alfa’s classic twin-cam four was downsized to 1,290ccc for the 750-Series Giulietta, gaining an alloy cylinder block in the process. The Sprint coupé was soon joined by Berlina and Spider versions, the latter styled by Pininfarina and built on a slightly shorter wheelbase. The Giulietta family’s success surprised even Alfa themselves; production targets were revised upwards and to satisfy demands for increased performance, upgraded Veloce versions of the Sprint and Spider were introduced. The combination of a rev-happy engine, fine-handling, responsive chassis and excellent brakes make the Giulietta Sprint a driver’s car par excellence and explains why these stylish Alfa Romeos continue to attract the discerning enthusiast today.

As confirmed from the Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo, this  Giulietta Sprint was  produced  on 27th  June 1961 and sold on  28th  June 1961  to Alfa Romeo of Lugano, Switzerland. The car was “ barn find” (pictures available) and totally restored in  2015. Equipped with Borrani wheels, this model must surely be one of  the most beautiful  Coupès of the 1950s, designed by the well known designer  Bertone.
