The name says it all: “special”. And for sure this Alfa Romeo can be called that. Because with a production number of 1366 pieces in total, this can certainly be called exclusive. And what about the styling? The renowned designer Franco Scaglione working for Bertone, delivered at the time an absolute masterpiece that actually belongs in an art museum, but which, although very rarely, can be seen on the road. Very special is that the aerodynamic body has a drag coefficient of only 0.28. Truly unique at that time, and even for the next two decades, because it was only then that it was surpassed.
This Giulia Sprint Speciale is one of the last copies delivered and was registered in 1966. It is the 1600cc. version, which means that the 116 bhp 4-cylinder DOHC engine, connected to a wonderful smooth shifting five-speed gearbox, only has to move 860 kg. All this is done with such flexibility and ease of use that every kilometer is a true joy. The great enjoyment also continues when you see the beautiful interior, where every detail proves that the total restoration that this car has recently undergone, has been one of a high class. We personally kept an eye on this restoration and many photos testify to a thorough “bare metal” and professional approach. After it was fineshed, the car only made the test kilometers and we now have a great Giulia SS on display. And we are very happy about this, because an SS of this quality is very hard to find.
The car is completely original. Even the beautiful and expensive Borrani spoke rims were at the time available as an option.
Alfa Romeo guarantees superbly driving cars, and when all that beautiful technique is fitted in a body that has no equal in terms of styling, then you must be envied as the owner of something so beautiful, right?
