The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale, also known as the Giulietta SS, was designed and offered as the more luxurious Giulietta in the range. While Alfa Romeo would design and manufacture the Berlina Sedan version of the Giulietta, Bertone designed the 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale with competition in mind. Clearly derived from the otherworldly Berlina Aerodinamica Tecnica and other show cars that had been created by Bertone in the mid-1950s, the Giulietta SS seemed a perfect solution to a competition version of the Bertone-designed Giulietta Sprint Veloce. Yet, the Sprint Speciale proved to be too heavy for the task, and instead became a stylish road car that added quite a bit of flair to the entry-level Alfa Romeo lineup. Manufactured from 1957 to 1962, the Giulietta Sprint Speciale would see approximately 1,366 models produced.
