The Sprint Speciale introduced in 1957, clothed with coachwork is amongst the most sensuous bodywork ever to emerge from the Bertone design studio. Inspired by the great aerodynamicist Franco Scaglione, the lovingly formed panels reflected the global 1950s love affair with supersonic flight, as well as the passion and the sexiness inherent in all the great Italian automotive designs. In fact, the streamlined, two door, coupe bodywork bore a marked resemblance to some of Alfa Romeo’s earlier competition designs, particularly the famous Disco Volante sports-racer. From every angle, delicate curve gave way to subtle sweep. Yet there was nothing flighty or voluptuous about the SS’s lines. Rat
