1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce

Alfa Romeo revolutionized the automotive landscape with the 1.3-liter 750-Series Giulietta in 1954, epitomizing the ethos of ‘small car, big performance’ that would define the brand’s finest offerings. This formula persisted through subsequent iterations, including the improved 101-Series from 1959 and the transition to the Giulia range in 1962. While visually similar to its predecessor, the Series-101 Giulia featured a more potent 1,570cc engine and enhanced heating systems, addressing previous shortcomings.

In 1963, Alfa Romeo unveiled the Giulia Sprint GT, showcasing timeless four-seater coachwork by Carrozzeria Bertone’s Giorgetto Giugiaro. Manufactured at Alfa’s new Arese factory, this model inherited key components from the 105-Series Giulia TI saloon, including the five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension, coil-sprung live rear axle, and, except for early editions, all-around disc brakes.


With 106bhp on tap, the Sprint GT achieved a top speed of approximately 180km/h (112mph), further bolstered by the introduction of the Sprint GTV (or GT Veloce) in 1967, boasting 109bhp thanks to enhancements in the inlet ports. The Sprint GT range captivated enthusiasts as exhilarating driver’s cars, enjoying a remarkable 14-year production run until 1977, solidifying its status as a triumph for Alfa Romeo.
