Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale (Type 101.21) and Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale (Type 750 SS / 101.20) were produced from 1959 to 1966.
The first prototype of the Giulietta SS was presented in 1957 at the Turin Motor Show.
After two other prototypes, the official presentation to the press of the final version took place on June 24, 1959 at the Monza circuit.
The first 101 units produced ("low nose") carried the designation 750 SS. Some had an all-aluminum body, but most were made of steel with aluminum sashes, hood and trunk.
Our Giulia SS is one of 25 cars produced in right-hand drive, according to the “Ruddspeed” specification, which makes it the most lively and capable model.
Originally registered BYY6B, this car was the first to be presented in England at the Earl's Court Show and was tested by MOTOR magazine (issue of March 13, 1965).
Designed by Bertone in the style of the famous Disco Volante Alfa, the car appeared to be the most glamorous but also the most expensive in its category.
On the performance side, it reached a speed of 113.9 mph over the ¼ mile, significantly faster than a Porsche 356 SC!
Still under its BYY6B registration, our Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale made the front page of the Classica & Sports Car magazine in August 2004.
Possessing a FIVA identity card, the car will participate in many automotive events such as the Alpine rally or the Scottish Malts Rallye.
Its owner at the time, a well-known gentleman driver, Nick BRITTAN was full of praise for his car in a letter “A few notes regarding my car”… Our Giulia SS was also owned by Eric Verdon-Roe, who was responsible for automotive press reviews such as Classica & Sports Car and Autosport.
More recently it was owned for over ten years by a well-known English collector and shared his garage alongside his Alvis Speed 20.
It joined the collection of the owners of Autoclassica 1 on December 1, 2015.
Scrupulously maintained by discerning owners, our Giulia is one of our favorite cars.
Its style is unique and its power of attraction intact.
Our Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale is a very rare copy (25 copies manufactured) in perfect condition.
