From 1956, Alfa Romeo Giulietta buyers could choose a Sprint Veloce or Spider Veloce in addition to the standard versions of the three primary body styles: Berlina, Sprint and Spider. Meaning fast, the Veloce models featured engine modifications, including twin Weber carburetors in place of the standard single Solex units, and could rev to more than 8,000rpm. On the outside, there were virtually no visible cues that would give away the extra power. The Veloce models were true sleepers that offered a wealth of fun in the form of an affordable and reliable sports car. Today, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Veloce continues to be a fantastic collector car and is popular with both American and European enthusiasts and collectors. The Giulietta models are of particular interest to many collectors, as their engines contained many features that were typically reserved for more expensive cars. The block and head were both cast in aluminum, for example. The pistons traveled in cast-iron wet liners that were replaceable thus indicating that these engines were designed to perform and last.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Veloce had some additional features that made it sportier and prepared it for endurance racing. The gas tank, for example, was enlarged and the front brakes were also updated to provide more efficient stopping power. By using Plexiglas rear and side windows and aluminum alloy doors, hood, and trunk lid, the Veloce was also lighter, which ultimately improved performance.
