History of the Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale
The Sprint Speciale debuted at the Turin Auto Salon of 1957 and was offered as a more luxurious version of the popular Giulietta, as it was built with lightweight construction and racing in mind. It was styled after Franco Scaglione’s three futuristic B.A.T. show cars and the popular Disco Volante racing cars. The design by Carrozzeria Bertone featured striking high fenders and a rounded roofline. This amazingly aerodynamic design boasts a drag coefficient of only .29, which is incredibly low, even by modern standards. Under the hood was the potent 1.3-liter, Veloce-specification twin-cam engine, which was equipped with twin two-barrel Weber carburetors and produced 100hp. While the original model was known as the Giulietta Sprint Speciale (or the Giulietta SS), a more refined version first appeared at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show. This new model was named the Giulia Sprint Speciale (or the Giulia SS) and featured the larger 1.6 liter engine from the Giulia Sprint Veloce and was rated at over 110hp. The interior was more refined with leather wrapping underneath the dashboard. With enhanced performance and more luxury the Giulia Sprint Speciale was a praised model for style, performance and luxury when new. With only 1400 examples produced until 1966 examples are highly sought-after by Italian car enthusiasts and collectors today!
