Giulia Spider Veloce 1600 10118 Pininfarina





The Giulia Spider, Sprint and Sprint Speciale introduced together with the Giulia saloon in 1962 were rebadged and updated versions of earlier Giulietta models (series 101), now with a 1.6 litre instead of a 1.3 litre engine.

Alfa was one of the first manufacturers to put a powerful engine in a lightweight car for mainstream production. The Giulia weighed about 1,000 kilograms. The car was equipped with a light alloy twin overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine, similar to that of the earlier Giulietta models range. Engine capacities offered were 1.3-litre (1,290 cm3) or 1.6-litre (1,570 cm3). Various configurations of carburetors and tuning produced power outputs from about 80 to about 110 bhp (55 to 75 kW). Almost all Giulias made had a 5-speed manual transmission. Giulias were noted for their lively performance among sedans of that era, especially considering the modest engine size. The popular Super version with the twin carburettor 1.6-litre engine had a top speed of 170 km/h. 0 to 100 km/h took about 12 seconds. This performance was better than many sports cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Easiest to distinguish from a Giulietta is the Spider, which featured a bonnet bulge to clear the slightly taller 1600 engine. The Sprint coupe was also available for a short time with the 1.3 litre engine as the Sprint 1300 - essentially a Giulietta Sprint with a different name. Most models were discontinued in 1964.
