While the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Veloce is a beautiful masterpiece of engineering and automotive design, the car did not start out as a priority for Alfa Romeo. Haven fallen behind with the 1300 saloon project, Alfa Romeo decided to launch a Coupe version first to please the companys clientele. Debuted at the Turin Motor Show in 1954, a Bertone design was chosen for the twin-cam 1300 engine that had been developed from the 1900 version. The standard Giulietta Sprint would offer 65hp, which was quite remarkable for such a small engine size at the time. Known for being attractive, sporty and quite elegant, the Giulia Sprint was a success. Those clients wanting an even sportier model could choose the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Veloce in 1956. Offering an 80hp engine with two carburetors, the Sprint Veloce would see an increase to 90hp in 1959. It is estimated that little more than 3,000 examples of this classic were produced, making it a rare classic in todays market.
