Footnotes
The original 750-Series 1.3-liter Giulietta Sprint Coupé of 1954 was soon joined by Berlina and Spider versions. Designed and built by Pininfarina and notable as the famous Turin coachbuilder's first volume-produced car, the Spider brought a level of refinement and mechanical sophistication to small sports cars that made the opposition look dated. Veloce versions of both Sprint and Spider came with an up-rated engine equipped with Weber carburettors and producing 90bhp (10 horsepower more than standard) making them the fastest of the mainstream production Giuliettas.

This Giulietta Spider Veloce suffered an engine failure in 1969 and remained stored in good condition until it was purchased by the immediately preceding owner in 2009. The car was then extensively restored: the chassis and body being stripped bare and repainted in original colors; the engine overhauled; the gearbox reconditioned; the interior refurbished; and the original electrics restored. The restoration was finished in 2010.

The Giulietta was purchased by the current vendor in 2012, since when the engine, ignition, electrics, brakes and suspension have all received further attention, as evidenced by invoices on file. Offered with and Alfa Romeo Certificate of Origin and old / current French Cartes Grises, this beautiful Giulietta Spider Veloce represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of these most attractive and sought-after Alfa Romeos.

The first Giulietta Sprint coupe from 1954 750 series was quickly joined by sedan and Spider versions. Designed and built by Pinin Farina, the Spider, its first mass-produced model, brought to the category of small sports cars a level of refinement and mechanical sophistication that made its competitors look archaic. The Veloce versions of the Sprint and Spider were equipped with an optimized Weber carburetor engine developing 90 hp (10 hp more than the standard version), making them the fastest of the Giulietta series.

This Giulietta Spider Veloce suffered engine damage in 1969 and remained in good condition until it was bought by the previous owner in 2009. The car was then completely restored, chassis and bodywork stripped bare and repainted in their original colors, revised engine, redone box, refurbished interior and restored electrical system. The restoration was completed in 2010.

The Giulietta was purchased by the seller in 2012, when the engine, ignition, electricity, brakes and suspension received careful attention as confirmed by the invoices on file. Sold with a certificate of origin Alfa Romeo and its current and expired French gray cards, this magnificent Giulietta Spider Veloce represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of the most attractive Alfa Romeo.
