Footnotes

  • The original 750-Series 1.3-litre Giulietta Sprint Coupé of 1954 was soon joined by Berlina and Spider versions. Designed and built by Pininfarina and notable as the famous Turin coachbuilder's first volume-produced car, the Spider brought a level of refinement and mechanical sophistication to small sports cars that made the opposition look dated. 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 immediately preceding owner in 2009. The car was then extensively restored: the chassis and body being stripped bare and repainted in original colours; the engine overhauled; the gearbox reconditioned; the interior refurbished; and the original electrics restored. The restoration was finished in 2010.

    The Giulietta was purchased by the current vendor in 2012, since when the engine, ignition, electrics, brakes and suspension have all received further attention, as evidenced by invoices on file. Offered with and Alfa Romeo Certificate of Origin and old/current French Cartes Grises, this beautiful Giulietta Spider Veloce represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of these most attractive and sought-after Alfa Romeos.

    La première Giulietta Sprint coupé de 1954 série 750 fut rapidement rejointe par des versions berline et Spider. Dessiné et construit par Pinin Farina, le Spider, son premier modèle de grande série, apportait à la catégorie des petites sportives un niveau de raffinement et de sophistication mécanique qui faisaient passer ses concurrentes pour archaïques. Les versions Veloce de la Sprint et du Spider étaient équipées d'un moteur optimisé à carburateurs Weber développant 90 ch (10 ch de plus que la version de série) ce qui en faisait les plus rapides des Giulietta de série.

    Cette Giulietta Spider Veloce connut une avarie de moteur en 1969 et resta remisée dans de bonnes conditions jusqu'à ce qu'elle soit achetée par le précédent propriétaire en 2009. La voiture fut alors complètement restaurée, châssis et carrosserie mis à nu et repeints dans leurs couleurs originales, moteur révisé, boîte refaite, intérieur regarni et système électrique restauré. La restauration fut achevée en 2010.

    La Giulietta a été achetée par le vendeur en 2012, date depuis laquelle le moteur, l'allumage, l'électricité, les freins et la suspension ont reçu des soins attentifs comme le confirment les factures au dossier. Vendue avec un certificat d'origine Alfa Romeo et ses cartes grises françaises actuelles et périmées, cette magnifique Giulietta Spider Veloce représente une rare occasion d'acquérir une des plus séduisante Alfa Romeo.
