Launched in 1963, the Giulia Sprint GT featured classically stylish four-seater coachwork designed by Bertone’s Giorgetto Giugiaro, though this was now manufactured at Alfa’s new factory at Arese. Beneath the skin the new coupé utilised the 105-Series Giulia TI saloon’s five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung live rear axle, all round disc brakes (early cars excepted) and 1,570cc engine in up-rated form. The subsequent 1750 version’s replacement by the 2000GTV in 1971 left a gap in the range that was filled by the return of a 1.6-litre model, which had been absent since the GTV’s demise 1968. This was the GT 1600 Junior built between 1972 and 1977, initially in two-headlamp form and later with the four-headlamp front end shared with the 2000GTV.
Finished in Rosso Corsa, this exciting Alfa Romeo GT 105 was race prepared in 1996 and has attended and won numerous racing events since, – accompanying documentation is included in the history file, achieving first place in two separate hill climbs in Sicily, once in 2013 and again in 2016.
Provided with its Historic Technical Passport and CSAI passport, this car has had its racing documents updated in 2015 and these are still valid today.
