Also known as the Alfa Romeo Giulia SS, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale and the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale both 101 Series were small sports cars manufactured by Alfa Romeo from 1959 to 1966. The first prototype of the Giulietta SS was presented at the Turin Motor Show in 1957, with two more prototypes soon following. Both cars used the Alfa Romeo Twin Cam engine, a design with hemispheric combustion chambers and valve controlled directly by two overhead camshafts. Designed to compete with the Porsche 365, the Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale had a front engine with rear wheel drive. Interestingly, the drag coefficient of the Alfa Romeo Speciale is 0.28, the same as a Corvette C6, and was not improved for more than 20 years.
An easy way to distinguish the Giulia SS or Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale from the Giulietta SS is by the dashboard. The Giulia has a leather underside with the glove box at a different angle than the main fascia. The dashboard of the Giulietta is sloping and painted in one color without a leather underside. While 1,366 Giulietta Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale models and 1,400 Giulia Sprint Speciale units were produced throughout the years, approximately 25 cars were converted to right hand drive.
