Guiletta Spider 10103/10104 Normale Pininfarina





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 official decision to go ahead  with a convertible version of the Giulietta would not, perhaps, have been taken if it had not been for the Hoffman Motor Car Inc. of New York, Alfa Romeo`s  U.S. importer. The American company placed order for open top version of the car on condition that the model would at least be exclusive to it. Asking Bertone and Pininfarina to each come up with a pair of working prototypes. Looking carefully at the two cars, their style is easily recognizable. Carrozzeria Bertone`s Franco Scaglione came up with splendid shape and was  the kind of philosophy that also brought to life the 2000 Sportiva roadster and coupe of the same period. Pininfarina won the Alfa Romeo competition. The first car was displayed in the autumn 1955 Paris Motor Show.

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.
