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 offerings from then on. Alfa’s classic twin-cam four was downsized to 1,290cc 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 documented in a letter from Marco Fazi of the Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo, this Giulietta Sprint 1300 (series 101.02) was produced on the 18th November 1964 and sold on the 22nd March 1965 in Castelvecchio Subequo, near L’Aquila, Italy. Originally painted in Azzurro Iseo, over the past 15 years it has competed in many Italian classic races.
