the same 1,300-cubic centimetre twin-cam engine that had proved so potent in the Giulietta Sprint Zagato, and with a remarkably low drag coefficient of only 0.28, the Giulietta SS belied its small capacity by topping 120 mph with relative ease – a figure unheard of at the time for cars in its class.

1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale Berlinetta Coachwork by Carrozzeria Bertone Chassis no. AR 10120 - 177123 Engine no. AR 00120 – 01562 1,290 cc DOHC Inline 4-Cylinder Engine 2 Weber Carburetors 100 bhp 5-Speed Manual Transmission Independent Front Suspension - Live Rear Axle Front and Rear Drum Brakes *Beautiful design by Franco Scaglione for Bertone *Tastefully upgraded for long distance touring *Offered from a prominent collection in England *Eligible for a plethora of events *One of only 1366 examples produced THE ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA With the introduction of the Giulietta in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the 'small car, big performance' formula which would characterise the Milanese marque's finest offerings from then on. Alfa's classic twin-cam four was downsized to 1,290ccc for the Giulietta, gaining an alloy cylinder block in the process. The original Bertone-styled Sprint Coupé was soon joined by Berlina (saloon) and Spider (open) versions, and then in 1957 came the model now recognised as the ultimate Giulietta - the Sprint Speciale – which was the first of the new 101-Series cars. Built on a slightly shorter wheelbase than the standard Sprint, and again the work of Bertone, the mouth-wateringly curvaceous 'SS' came with 100bhp on tap, a five-speed gearbox and a top speed of 125mph. Compact, aerodynamically efficient and very powerful for its size, the SS proved highly successful in 1,300cc class racing the world over. A mere 1,366 had been produced by the time the model was superseded in 1963, and today this rare Giulietta variant is highly prized by Alfa Romeo connoisseurs. THE MOTORCAR OFFERED This stunning Giulietta SS was purchased by the current owner for his impressive collection of European classic cars in 2006 and has since only been used sparingly, having been looked after by his in-house mechanic. The car was restored ca. 1990 in Germany for the impressive sum of some 150,000 DM (the equivalent of ca. $ 88,000 at the time). It was tastefully upgraded for fast road use, with a Williams 4-point seatbelt harness, black leather bucket seats with headrests, a classic Nardi wood-rimmed steering wheel and magnesium wheels. It also benefits from a Chris Robinson suspension and handling kit (of RM Restorations in the UK). The power output of the 1290 cc engine is believed to be a very healthy 104 bhp. These upgrades have been very tastefully incorporated without changing the original car's character and can be relatively easily changed back to the original should the new custodian be so inclined. As it is, it would be ideal for spirited driving or as an entrant into the many long distance touring events in the US or abroad.
