Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale 1962 LHD chassis : 10120 177426 engine : 00120 01492 When car designer Franco Scaglione started to work for the Bertone studio in 1952 he immediately stunned the world by designing the BAT 5 (in 1953), BAT 7 (in 1954) and BAT 9 (in 1955) styling exercises on the Alfa Romeo 1900 platform. In the meantime he also had taken care of the neat design of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint, of which, inspired on his BAT designs, he developed in 1957 a wilder version: the Sprint Speciale or SS. A futuristic looking, very aerodynamic sportscar with a CX of 0,28...! An almost incredible figure for a production model at the end of the 50-ies! The Giulietta SS was constructed, just as the Giulietta Sprint Zagato or SZ, on the shorter wheelbase of 2m25cm and benefitted also from the most powerful 116 HP 1300 cc engine variant. Just the same as the full aluminium SZ the SS was a light weight construction (bonnet, bootlid and doors in aluminium) with competition in mind. Because the SS cars came with a fully equipped, more luxurious interior and since they were much cheaper than the SZ, Alfa Romeo sold between 1959 and 1962 1,366 examples. After reading my historical background description from above you have understood that I am very much in love with the Giulietta SS, of which I owned several in the past. Yes, I admit that it was with some excitement that I seized the opportunity to buy this particular Giulietta SS. Finished in typical Alfa Romeo-red this Giulietta SS is in excellent condition having been properly restored some years ago. Those years have added a tiny little bit of attractive patina to this sportscar, which I personally like. The underneath of the car is still very clean and 100% solid. And finally a test-drive on the road only confirmes all the initial positive impressions! Are you not curious to experience these yourself? Just contact me!
