Just a decade after the end of the war, Alfa Romeo decided to make something that would revive the glories of pre-war production, producing snappy and handy cars. Just a decade after the end of the war, Alfa Romeo decided to make something that would revive the glories of pre-war production, producing snappy and handy cars. In this climate, the design of the Giulietta was born in the two versions, saloon and coupe. Due to some problems at the plant, the car manufacturer was forced to produce first only the coupe model, called Sprint. Thus, the first model that bears the name of Giulietta was born.

The success that it had exceeded all expectations thanks to the engine, designed under the direction of engineer Busso, had very high technical characteristics for the time. The rear-wheel drive and the double overhead camshaft made the machine snappy.

The aggressive but elegant line and the very light grey colour of this extraordinary car, conquer at first glance. Its grey cloth interior with blue leatherette make it a wonderful example worthy of competing and winning in the best competitions of elegance. And so it was, in fact, in July 2019 at the Concorso di Eleganza of the Gold Cup of the Dolomites the car was awarded by Mr. Corrado Lopresto and Mr. David Giudici, director of the prestigious magazine Ruoteclassiche. This car owes its palmares not only to the impeccable restoration it has undergone, but also and above all to its rarity, since to date it is one of the very few Giulietta Sprint first series total matching still in circulation and in amazing conditions, which until today, since the day of its restoration, has covered only 2000 km. The car is regularly registered with the ASI register n.263142, and the C.S.A.I. fiche for regularity races and it is Mille Miglia elegible
