The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale, or Giulietta SS, was modeled after Franco Scaglione and Bertones three futuristic B.A.T show cars designed between 1953 and 1955. One of the most interesting qualities of this unique design is its aerodynamics. In fact, the 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale (and other model-years) has a drag coefficient of only 0.29, which is particularly low even by todays standards. Making its debut at the 1957 Turin Motor Show, this Bertone-designed Coupe offered a forward-thinking curvature that captivated the hearts of Alfa Romeo enthusiasts and sports car lovers alike. Just 1,366 examples of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale would be built between 1957 and 1962. Power would be offered from a 1,290cc dual overhead cam four-cylinder engine with dual Weber sidedraft carburetors for 100hp and a top speed of approximately 120mph. Buying a 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale can be quite an exciting time; however, it is always best to partner with a classic car expert that can assist you in evaluating your potential purchase.
One of the biggest concerns associated with buying a 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale is rust. The floorpans are notorious for having rust damage, as well as rocker panels and doorsills. While some rust may not deter you from purchasing and restoring a Sprint Speciale, especially because of raising prices for properly restored examples, you should attempt to find a well-bodied example within your price range. This can save you thousands of dollars and man-hours when it comes time to start the restoration process. On the other hand, if youre looking for a classic Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale in mint-condition, there should be no rust damage and any areas of rust repair should be unnoticeable. To ensure you have the best overall picture of any potential purchase including mechanics, electrical and body be sure to seek the assistance of a qualified Alfa Romeo mechanic or classic car expert.
