“The rarefied glamour of a coachbuilt classic with levels of performance that are more in keeping with altogether more youthful cars”. Motor Sport, June 2008

Manufactured on the 8th January 1964, chassis AR 380784 was sold to Alfa Romeo UK in July of that year. Ruddspeed, the specialist tuning company of motor sport ace Ken Rudd, was commissioned to convert 25 of the beautiful Giulia SS’s for Alfa Romeo UK into Right Hand Drive. This is one of those cars.

Most Alfa Romeo’s of the period led a tough life, the harsh British weather ravishing the Italian (and in this case Bertone) bodywork. However, this SS has always been well cared for and its 57,000 original miles regularly documented.

With only 3 owners until 2010, the Alfa is in excellent condition, an engine & gearbox rebuild having been completed less than 4,000 miles ago. Many original features, often lost over the course of time, are retained including the original jack, radio and a very spare rare windscreen. This SS is a well known Giulia Sprint Speciale, appearing in numerous publications including Motor Sport magazine.

This excellent example of the compelling Alfa Romeo Giulia SS is on the button and ready to go.
