Description

Launched in 1963, the first of Alfa Romeo’s Bertone-styled coupés – the 1.6-litre Giulia Sprint GT – featured classically stylish four-seater coachwork designed by Bertone’s Giorgetto Giugiaro, though this was now manufactured not by Bertone but at Alfa’s new factory at Arese. Beneath the skin the new two-door coupé utilised the recently introduced 105-Series Giulia TI saloon’s five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung live rear axle and – early cars excepted – all round disc brakes.

The Sprint GT came with 106bhp on tap (up from the TI’s 92bhp courtesy of two twin-choke Weber carburettors) an output sufficient for a top speed of around 112mph. Improvements to the inlet ports characterised the more-powerful (109bhp) engine of the Sprint GTV (or GT Veloce) introduced for 1965. A 1300 model – the GT Junior – arrived in 1966 and the range was further extended the following year by the launch of the 1750GTV, the latter powered by a 1,799cc, 118bhp version of Alfa’s classic twin-cam four housed in a four-headlamp version of the existing bodyshell running on 14” – down from 15” – wheels. A short-lived but nonetheless popular model, the 1750GTV underwent a minor mechanical and styling revision part way through production before being replaced by the 2000 version in 1972. Drivers’ cars par excellence in the Alfa Romeo tradition, Bertone’s timelessly elegant Giulia coupés are among the most exciting sports saloons of the 1960s and today all versions are highly sought after.

This car is one of the best examples on the market and a rare opportunity to buy one of the best GTV 1750 around . This particular car comes from a private collection. The interior is original and in good condition.  This car comes with its Italian registration papers.
