      Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint 1961 LHD   The Italian sports car every "young" man wanted/wants to own!   When launched in 1954 at the Torino Motorshow nobody expected that this sports car with sleek lines, designed by Franco Scaglione from Bertone and propulsed by an innovative, all alloy 4 cylinder twin cam engine, would become a very advanced (the Giulietta was one of the fastest cars in its class) mass produced (in total 27.000 examples produced) sports car and Alfa Romeo's flagship during many years.   To me it was the Italian sports car of my youth! Every time I see one, I immediately remember the famous car scene in Claude Sautet's movie : "Les Choses de la Vie" in which French actor Michel Piccoli is involved in a tragic accident at the wheel of a metallic grey Giulietta Sprint. Have a look: Easy to understand that when I was confronted with the beautiful Tornado Blue Sprint in the collection of one of my South Italian contacts, this excellent condition Giulietta Sprint was very difficult to resist.   The more this Alfa Romeo sports car has only had 2 owners from new and is still wearing the black Roma numberplates.   Thanks to the warm south italian climate, this Sprint is extremely sound and absolutely undamaged. Recently expertly restored respecting her original colours and trim.   Because we enjoyed over here in Belgium, very nice idian summer weather, I could test this Giulietta Sprint on the country roads around our home town, Aalst. All I can say is: what a pleasure! Why do you not  have a go? But watch out for this Renault Betailli ère with pigs...!
