In 1954, Alfa Romeo introduced the 1.3-litre Giulietta, establishing its reputation for producing small cars with “big performance” and this reputation has continued to this day with the recently launched 4C. Introduction of the Giulietta caused a sensation and a big success. That forced Alfa to change its whole ethos and become, for the first time, a high volume manufacturer.
Berlina and spider versions quickly joined the original Giulietta Sprint Coupé of 1954, and the Spider benefitted from simple and elegant coachwork designed and built by Pinin Farina. In 750 series form, the Veloce Spider came with an up-rated engine that was equipped with dual Weber carburetors and could produce a healthy 90 brake horsepower, which was 10 horsepower higher than the standard engine. The Giulietta Veloce enjoys the honor of being the best performing and most developed open variant of the 1300 line.
