Description

The stunning Sprint Speciale coupé directly descended from Carrozzeria Bertone’s brilliant Bertone Aerodynamica Technica (BAT) design studies of the mid-1950s. With its extremely low drag coefficient of 0.29, it was aimed at competition, and a limited number were produced to meet FIA homologation rules. The Speciale utilised lightweight construction that had been built on the chassis of the popular Giulietta Spider, and it came with a domed roofline and gracefully peaked wings. The Giulietta’s sturdy 1300cc, all-alloy, four-cylinder engine was fitted with a pair of Weber sidedraught carburettors, and it could produce a healthy 116 hp. This was enough power to push the slippery two-seater to almost 125 mph, considerably faster than its conventionally bodied Giulietta Sprint coupé and spider siblings.  The 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale offered here at Autostorico is built to FIA specification and finished in Alfa Rosso Red with Red interior. The car remained in Italy until it was sold to its current owner who had been searching for an original car that had never corroded, given that it had lived its entire life in a dry climate. The car has been maintained to the highest possible standard and has been used sparingly by its current owner, who has decided to sell the car due to ill health.  A perfect opportunity to own one of the prettiest 60s Coupe’s, which will certainly appreciate further over time.
