The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale (Tipo 750 SS/101.20, Italian for “Type 750 SS/101.20”) and Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale (Tipo 101.21), also known as Giulietta SS and Giulia SS were manufactured from 1959 to 1966. The first prototype of the Giulietta SS was presented in 1957 at the Turin Motor Show.
After two more prototypes were presented in car shows, the official presentation of the production version for the press was on 24th June 1959 on the Monza race track. The first 101 cars produced had “low nose” and 750 SS designation. While there were some all-aluminium cars produced, the majority of these cars had steel bodies with aluminium doors, engine bonnet and boot lid.
This wonderful matching numbers Giulietta Sprint Speciale was delivered when new to Belgium.
In recent times the Alfa has benefitted from a comprehensive restoration, and is now presented beautifully in the classic Alfa colours of Rosso with a Nero interior. A stunning example of one of the most ground-breaking designs of the last century.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
