THE ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA

With the introduction of the Bertone-styled Giulietta Sprint in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the 'small car, big performance' formula which would characterize the Milanese marque's 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.

Alfa's classic twin-cam four became 1,290cc for the 750-Series Giulietta, gaining an alloy cylinder block in the process. The original Sprint Coupé was soon joined by Berlina (saloon) and Spider (open) versions, and then in 1957 by the first of the new 101-Series cars. 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. In 750-Series form, the Veloce versions of both Sprint and Spider came with an up-rated engine equipped with Weber carburetors and producing 96bhp, making them the fastest of the mainstream production Giuliettas. 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. Between 1956 and 1962, 3,058 examples of the Bertone-bodied Giulietta Sprint Veloce were built, and today these rare models are highly prized by Alfa Romeo connoisseurs

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Bonhams is thrilled to offer this outstanding, professionally prepared 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint, which has been restored to Veloce specification. The Italian thoroughbred has been the recipient of an extensive multi-year, nut-and-bolt restoration at the hands of respected experts, leaving the car in phenomenal condition.

Unable to find a classic that would allow him to partake in every aspect of the vintage hobby from racing and rallies to shows and Sunday morning cruises, the consignor set out to build this multifacited dream car. After finding a worthy candidate, the extensive build began. The restoration included a bare-metal, ground-up reconstruction of the car and all the mechanicals. The work was completed by the well-known vintage racing specialist, Scott Rubin, and has been fully sorted and maintained by McGee Motorsports at Sears Point Sonoma Raceway. Restored to a period-correct racing livery, the car is finished in light metallic blue with a dark burgundy over grey interior, with correct dash and instrumentation. The drivetrain is built to the 1962 SCCA rules, with a 1.6-liter aluminum dual cam engine fed by 40 DCOE Weber carburetors. Power is routed to the period aluminum TZ type wheels through a 5-speed Alfa transmission. The undercarriage is immaculate with period-correct Girling front disc brakes and Koni shocks. While maintaining the original Alfa racing character, the Sprint meets current competition safety standards with a fully integrated roll cage, 3-zone fire system, 6-point Schroth racing harnesses, competition seats (in period style), fuel cell, and exterior electric cut-off. Receipts for the incredible build are on file, totaling more than $100,000.

With true dual-purpose provenance, the car qualifies for premier vintage racing events in addition to rallies and tours, with its current 2018 California registration and vintage yellow plates. The Alfa has quite an impressive resume with experience at the California Mille (participant in 2011), as well as the most prestigious vintage racing venues, such as the Rolex Monterey Reunion (Participant in 2011 & 2014), Sonoma Historics, CSRG David Love Memorial, and the SVRA National Vintage Championships at COTA in 2017. The car meets the qualification standards for SVRA "Gold Medallion" status, which includes automatic entry into all national SVRA vintage events.

This outstanding Giulietta Sprint is one of the finest, and certainly the most eligible examples available anywhere. The incredible dual-purpose usability of the car is as astounding as the build itself. This Alfa is a real Gem that deserves the continued enjoyment of a fellow enthusiast.
