Giuletta Spider Veloce Pininfarina 10107/10125





The Alfa Romeo Giulietta (series 750 and 101) was a compact automobile manufactured by Alfa Romeo from 1954 to 1965. The Giulietta was introduced at the Turin Motor Show in 1954 and almost 132,000 were built in the Portello factory in Milan. The Giulietta used an Alfa Romeo Twin Cam engine of 1290 cm3 straight-4, with a light alloy cylinder block and an alloy cylinder head with twin overhead camshafts.

The first Giulietta model was a coupé, the Giulietta Sprint, introduced in late 1954. This was followed by a saloon in spring 1955 and in mid-1955, the open two-seat Giulietta Spider, featuring convertible bodywork by Pininfarina.

In 1957 more powerful Berlina version, called Giulietta TI (Turismo Internazionale) was presented with minor cosmetic changes to the hood, the dial lights and rear lamps. Spider benefitted from simple and elegant coachwork designed and built by Pinin Farina. In 750 series form, the Veloce Spider came with an up-rated engine that was equipped with dual Weber carburettors and could produce a healthy 90 brake horsepower, which was 10 horsepower higher than the standard engine. The Giulietta Veloce enjoys the honour of being the best performing and most developed open variant of the 1300 line.

A new version of the Giulietta Berlina debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1959. The fuel tank was now incorporated in the right rear fender and was equipped with a door. The nose was redefined with more rounded wings, recessed lights, new headlights and grille rings revised with horizontal bars. The interior was much more organized and the dashboard instruments had an elongated bore including the tachometer. The series number was changed from 750/753 to the 101 series. The rear also showed changes, with vestigial fins replacing the earlier rounded fenders and with new, slightly larger taillights. The T.I. also received a front side marker light mounted in a small spear, unlike the Normale which has a small round lamp with no decorations.

In 1961, the TI version was upgraded to 74 bhp (54 kW). With this new engine, the car could reach a speed of almost 160 km/h. Production of the standard Berlina continued until 1963, whilst the TI continued for one year more. Production figures for Spider were 14,300 units. This, the Third Series Giulietta Berlina, received mesh grille inserts up front and new, larger taillights.
