Description

Few cars were more successful at combining good looks, practicality, and performance as the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT. Marrying sharp two-door coupé styling with the firm’s celebrated double overhead-cam engine, the Giorgetto Giugiaro-designed masterpiece became an instant classic upon its launch in 1963, proving as popular with the public as it was with would-be racers. More than 20,000 left Alfa Romeo’s Arese plant, and the recipe was only improved three years later with the arrival of the uprated Giulia Sprint GT Veloce. The changes were subtle, with minor improvements to the exterior brightwork and a revised interior that featured lashings of imitation wood, while the drivetrain was tweaked with a more powerful and tractable 108 horsepower version of the famed 1.6-litre ‘four’ borrowed from the Duetto Spider. The result was a more polished, refined, and quicker machine that instantly won over the world’s press, who put the new car through its paces on the tight, twisting streets linking the picturesque towns and villages of Lake Garda in 1966. The example offered is one of those special Tipo 10536 variants, identifiable by its quadrifoglio badging, revised bumpers, and interior refinements. An early “step-nose” car, it left Alfa Romeo’s Arese plant in 1967 before being registered in Rome in the name of its first owner on 8 June. The original Italian Libretto, which accompanies the car, confirms that the Alfa Romeo has remained in the care of the same family since new. After being disassembled by the original owner, the car eventually passed to his son, on the understanding that it be returned to its former glory. The current owner relished the challenge and commissioned Autofficina Deiana Racing and Autocarrozzeria Evandri Marco to carry out a full restoration in 2021, including a refinish in Giallo Ocra and a full rebuild of its replacement engine, which was fitted to the car in 1987. The interior was also re-trimmed. Invoices totalling €27,607 are available to view on file, in addition to a comprehensive photographic record of the restoration. Today, the Alfa Romeo presents in smart, restored condition, and is ready to be enjoyed and perfected by its next owner.
