'The Alfa, in a few words then, is a small car with a rev-happy dohc engine that can carry two people from point A to point B over all types of roads quicker than most cars twice its size.' – Car & Driver on the Giulietta Sprint.
With the introduction of the Bertone-styled Giulietta Sprint in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the 'small car, big performance' formula that would characterise the Milanese marque's finest offerings from then on. Alfa's classic twin-cam four was downsized to 1,290ccc for the 750-Series Giulietta, gaining an alloy cylinder block in the process. The Sprint coupé was soon joined by Berlina and Spider versions, the latter styled by Pinin Farina and built on a slightly shorter wheelbase. The Giulietta family'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 Alfa Romeos continue to attract the discerning enthusiast today.
This restored Giulietta Sprint was imported from Italy to its present home in Germany. Finished in blue with grey interior, the car is offered with German registration documents, TüV and Classic Data report stating that it is 'Condition 1-' (excellent throughout).

“L’Alfa, en quelques mots, est une petite voiture dotée d’un moteur vif à 2 ACT, capable d’emmener deux personnes d’un point A à un point B sur toutes sortes de route plus vite que la plupart des voitures deux fois plus grandes”. – Car & Driver à propos de la Giulietta Sprint.
Avec l’introduction de la Giulietta Sprint dessinée par Bertone en 1954, Alfa Romeo établit la formule “petite voiture, grande performance” qui allait caractériser les productions futures de la marque milanaise. Le classique quatre-cylindres à 2 ACT d’Alfa fut réduit à 1,290 cm3 sur la Giulietta série 750, gagnant au passage un bloc en aluminium. Le coupe Sprint fut bientôt complété par les versions Berlina et Spider, cette dernière signée Pinin Farina et construite sur un empattement un peu plus court. Le succès de la famille Giulietta surprit les gens d’Alfa Romeo eux-mêmes. Les objectifs de production furent revus à la hausse et, pour répondre à la demande d’une augmentation des performances, des versions Veloce plus puissantes de la Sprint et de la Spider furent introduites. La combinaison d’un moteur nerveux, d’un châssis précis et sain et d’excellents freins fit de la Giulietta Sprint une voiture de pilote par excellence et explique le succès toujours actuel de ces élégantes Alfa Romeo auprès des passionnés et des connaisseurs.
Cette Giulietta Sprint restaurée fut importée d’Italie par son actuel propriétaire en Allemagne. Peinte en bleu avec intérieur gris, la voiture est accompagnée de ses papiers allemands, de son contrôle technique du TüV et de l’attestation de classement en “Classic Condition 1” (Excellent état à tous points de vue).
