Heir to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, the classic Alfa Romeo Giulia would debut in June 1962 with the release of the Giulia TI Berlina. It was roomier and square, often called a three-box saloon with an unprecedented style and sophistication. The 1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider, as well as Berlina and Sprint examples, was the first to be fitted with a five-speed gearbox and to adopt a crumple-zone body. Powered by a 1,570cc derivative of the Giulietta engine with 92hp, the first model to debut would be the Sedan. The other variants in the Giulietta theme would continue under the Giulia TI name, including the Spider, the Sprint and the Sprint Speciale. Also during 1962, the Giulia TZ would be introduced, which was aimed at motorsport. The following year would see the release of the Giulia TI Super, of which just 500 examples were built.
