Model overview of the 1960s classics
With the introduction of the 1.3-litre 750-Series Giulietta in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the “small car, big performance” formula which has characterised the Milanese marque’s finest offerings ever since. The original Giulietta model designations and body styles were carried over into the 101-Series produced from 1959 and continued when the range was upgraded to Giulia status in 1962. Outwardly almost indistinguishable from the outgoing Giulietta, the Series-101 Giulia boasted a more powerful 1,570 cc engine.
Launched in 1963, the Giulia Sprint featured stylish four-seater coachwork designed by Bertone’s Giorgetto Giugiaro, with production moved from Bertone to Alfa’s new production facility at Arese. Beneath the skin, the new coupé utilised the five-speed manual gearbox from the recently-introduced 105-Series Giulia TI saloon, as well as an independent front suspension, a coil-sprung live rear axle and front disc brakes.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in May of 2010 at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco.
1,570 cc inline four-cylinder engine, five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension with unequal-length A-arms and coil springs, live rear axle with coil springs, front disc and rear drum brakes. Wheelbase: 2,350 mm (92.5").
