Avec l'apparition de la Giulietta Sprint 1,3 litre en 1954, Alfa Romeo initiait la formule de la petite voiture à haute performance qui allait caractériser ses meilleurs produits à partir de ce jour. Le coupé Sprint fut rapidement rejoint par les versions berline et spider, puis, en 1957, arriva la première des nouvelles voitures de la série 101. Le succès de la Giulietta surprit même Alfa Romeo. Les objectifs de production furent revus à la hausse et, pour répondre à la demande de performances encore accrues, des versions Veloce du coupé et du spider furent dévoilés. Le cocktail d'un moteur prenant ses tours avec facilité, d'une excellente tenue de route, d'un châssis rigide et de freins efficaces fait de la Giulietta Sprint une voiture de conducteur par excellence et explique pourquoi l'élégante Alfa continue d'attirer les passionnés aujourd'hui encore.

Le Centro Documentazione Automobilismo Storico Alfa Romeo a confirmé que cette voiture est bien une authentique Giulietta Sprint Veloce, produite en octobre 1960 et vendue en janvier 1961 par Motoriltalia SA à Lima, au Pérou. La couleur d'origine était un bleu Iseo. Bien que ce soit plus une voiture à numéros concordants, la moteur est un authentique Veloce. Objet d'une restauration partielle effectuée un peu plus tôt dans l'année, la voiture a été peinte en rouge avec intérieur noir et est décrite comme étant en bon état général. La documentation fournie comprend diverses factures de pièces détachées, le Libretto italien et le Certificato di Proprieta.

With the introduction of the 1.3-litre Giulietta Sprint in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the 'small car, big performance' formula which would characterise its finest offerings from then on. The original Sprint Coupé was soon joined by Berlina (saloon) and Spider (open) versions, and then in 1957 came the first of the new 101-Series cars. The Giulietta's success surprised even Alfa themselves: production targets were revised upwards and to satisfy demands for increased performance, upgraded 'Veloce' versions of the Sprint and Spider were introduced. The combination of a rev-happy engine, fine-handling, responsive chassis and excellent brakes make the Giulietta Sprint a driver's car par excellence and explains why these stylish Alfas continue to attract the discerning enthusiast today.

Alfa Romeo's Centro Documentazione Automobilismo Storico has confirmed that this car is a genuine Giulietta Sprint Veloce, produced in October 1960 and sold in January 1961 via Motoritalia SA in Lima, Peru. The original colour was Blue Iseo. Although it is no longer a matching numbers car, the engine appears to be a genuine Veloce unit. Benefiting from a partial restoration completed earlier this year, the car is finished in red with black interior and is described as in generally good condition. Accompanying documentation consists of sundry parts invoices, Italian Libretto and Certificato di Proprieta.
