With the introduction in 1954 of the 1.3-litre Giulietta, Alfa Romeo established the 'small car, big performance' formula that would characterise its finest offerings from then on. The Giulietta's arrival caused a sensation; demand outstripped supply at first, causing Alfa to rethink its production strategy and become, for the first time, a high-volume manufacturer. The original Giulietta Sprint Coupé of 1954 was soon joined by Berlina and Spider versions, the latter sporting elegant coachwork designed and built by Pininfarina. In 750-Series form the Veloce versions of both Sprint and Spider came with an up-rated engine equipped with Weber carburettors and producing 90bhp (10 horsepower more than standard) making them the fastest of the mainstream production Giuliettas.
This Giulietta Spider Veloce suffered an engine failure in 1969 and remained stored in good condition until it was purchased by the current vendor three years ago. Since then the car has been extensively restored, the chassis and body being stripped bare and repainted in original colours; the engine overhauled with new bearings, con-rods, water pump, oil pump, cylinder head, etc; the gearbox reconditioned; the interior refurbished; and the original electrics restored. The only notified deviation from factory specification is the provision of an after-market air filter. Completed in 2010 and offered with Alfa Romeo Certificate and French Carte Grise, this beautiful Giulietta Spider Veloce represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of the most attractive and sought-after Alfa Romeos of its day.

En introduisant en 1954 la Giulietta 1,3 litre, Alfa Rome créa la formule ’petite voiture, grande performance’ qui allait caractériser les productions futures de la marque milanaise. L’arrivée de la Giulietta déclencha une demande impossible à satisfaire sur le moment et Alfa dut revoir sa stratégie industrielle pour devenir pour la première fois un constructeur en volume. La Giulietta Sprint Coupé de 1954 fut bientôt complétée par les versions Berlina et Spider, cette dernière habillée d’une élégante caisse signée et construite par Pininfarina. Sous la forme de la série 750, les versions Veloce de la Sprint comme de la Spider reçurent un moteur plus puissant alimenté par des carburateurs Weber et donnant 90 cv (10cv de plus que le type standard) qui en fit les plus rapides des Giulietta de production.
Cette Giulietta Spider Veloce a subi une panne de moteur en 1969 est restée garée dans de bonnes conditions jusqu’à son achat par le vendeur actuel il y a trois ans. Depuis, la voiture a été profondément restaurée, le châssis et la carrosserie mis à nu et repeints dans les teintes d’origine, le moteur refait avec des coussinets, bielles, pompe à eau, pompe à huile, culasse, neufs, la boîte reconditionnée, l’intérieur et le circuit électrique refait comme à l’origine. La seule différence avec les spécifications d’usine concerne le montage d’un filtre à air à la place des trompettes de carburateurs. Achevée en 2010 et proposée avec le certificat d’Alfa Romeo et sa carte grise française, cette belle Giulietta Spider Veloce représente une rare opportunité d’acquérir la plus séduisante et la plus recherchée des Alfa Romeo des années 1950-1960.
