In March of 1963, the bigger engine 1.6L Alfa Romeo Giulia series would replace the widely popular Alfa Romeo Giulietta line at the Geneva Motor Show. The word Giulietta means Little Giulia in Italian; naming the new series the Giulia was a wordplay, claiming that the new car was a more grown-up version of the Giulietta. The 1,570cc engine, which made reaching 120mph possible, featured Weber 40 DCOE2 carburetors that were taken from the Giulia Sprint Veloce and gave the Giulia 112hp. Most Giulia Sprint Speciale models were equipped with disc brakes at the front wheels. If youre looking to buy a 1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale, one of the easiest ways to distinguish a Giulia SS from a Giulietta SS is by the dashboard. The Giulia offers a leather underside with the glovebox at a different angle, while the Giulietta is painted in one color without a leather underside. In total, 1,400 Giulia Sprint Speciale models were produced prior to the end of production in 1966.
