Although the Alfa Romeo Giulietta would arrive in 1952 as a Berlina Sedan and Sprint Coupe, the Pininfarina-designed Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider would not arrive until 1955. Pininfarina would shave more than five inches off the Bertone Coupe chassis and would cross-brace the body for rigidity. Later, in 1956, a Giulietta Spider Veloce would also appear with a more performance-based engine. In 1959, however, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta lineup would receive a styling change, replacing the 750 Series with the 101 Series. The Spider’s wheelbase would grow two inches during this time, while the entire line would receive a front-end makeover and interior refresh. Most notably, the Giulietta Spider would see more rounded wings, recessed lights, new headlights, and horizontal bars on the front grille. Additionally, starting in the 1960 model-year, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider would now be offered with a detachable hard top. If you’re thinking about buying a 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider, this detachable hard top certainly adds value to any model.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider is one of the brand’s most recognizable and loved models. Within the range, the Giulietta Spider Veloce, of which 2,796 were manufactured, is perhaps one of the favorites. Boasting extra horsepower via upgrades to the carburetors and exhaust headers, many collectors believe that the 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce edition is the best way to experience a true Alfa Romeo driver’s experience. Of course, this is personal preference, and the 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider in standard tune is equally as impressive and beautiful.
