The Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale appeared in 1963 and was a distinctive and quite different looking Coupe. Fitted with a Veloce engine and with the now standard five-speed gearbox, the Giulia Sprint Speciale or SS was popular in circuit racing. During the 1960s, the Sprint Speciale became the road-going Alfa Romeo to have. Popular for its extra engine capacity and aerodynamic shape, it offered owners effortless high-speed cruising and gave owners an affordable and practical way to travel in style. Today, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale is loved for many of these same reasons. The last survivor of the 101 Series, it is estimated that approximately 1,400 of the Giulia SS were produced prior to production ending in 1966. RuddSpeed converted a small number of these cars to right hand drive. When compared to its sister model, the Giulietta Sprint Speciale, the interior of the Giulia SS was more comfortable. Instruments on the dashboard had a different arrangement and the bottom of the dashboard was padded with the same material as the seats. There was a big handle on the passenger side, and an ashtray was added on top of the gearbox tunnel behind the gearshift lever. The area behind the seats now resembled a real bench for passengers, but was really only good enough for luggage.
