Footnotes

  • Launched in 1963, the Giulia Sprint GT featured classically stylish four-seater coachwork designed by Bertone's Giorgetto Giugiaro. Beneath the skin the new coupé utilised the recently introduced 105-Series Giulia TI saloon's five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung live rear axle and - early cars excepted - all round disc brakes. The 1,570cc Giulia Sprint GT came with 106bhp on tap (up from the TI's 92bhp courtesy of two twin-choke Weber carburettors) an output sufficient for a top speed of around 112mph. Prepared by Autodelta, the GTA competition version enjoyed considerable success, winning the European Touring Car Championship three years running from 1966-68. Exhilarating driver's cars, the Sprint GT range was an immense success for Alfa Romeo, enjoying a 14-year production run until 1977, and today they represent a very user-friendly entry into many types of historic motor sport.

    This left-hand drive Giulia Sprint GT was sold new in November 1964 in Naples, Italy and originally finished in Hawthorn White with blue interior. In February 2012 the Alfa was purchased from Nicola Ometto in Padova and two months later was registered in the UK, its owner being AROC member Peter Horsburgh of Docking, Norfolk. It has been race/rally prepared to an exceptional standard following a full and thorough 'ground upwards' bare-metal restoration undertaken in Italy between 2007 and 2009. The quality of this restoration has to be seen to be appreciated. More recently, in 2012, a new braking system was installed (supplied by Classic Alfa, Croydon) and the straight-cut five-speed 105-Series gearbox rebuilt by specialists Cloverleaf Transmissions.

    The car's specification includes twin 45DCOE Weber carburettors; EBC Greenstuff 'fast road' brake pads; Sparco Pro 2000 competition seats; full harness seat belts; fire extinguisher; full roll cage; navigator footrest; trip meter; MoMo steering wheel; boot-mounted 57-litre foam-filled fuel tank; Facet fuel pump; lightweight H4 headlamps; Hella 500 spotlights; and Pirelli P Zero N3 tyres on 15" diameter rims. Accompanying documentation consists of a comprehensive history file containing full FIA papers and Historic Technical Passport; AROC (UK) Ltd Giulia Register data sheet; sundry restoration invoices; current MoT; UK V5C document; and Automobilismo Storico Alfa Romeo confirmation of origin. Fully serviced by RPS and ready to use, this potentially very competitive Giulia Sprint GT is 'on the button' and eligible for a wide variety of historic motor sports events.
