The Giulietta used an Alfa Romeo twin cam engine of 1290 cc straight-4, with a light alloy cylinder block and an alloy cylinder head with twin overhead camshafts. The original Giulietta engine produced a power output of 62 hp (46 kW) in the sedan and 80 hp (60 kW) in the Giulietta Sprint. This was to be increased to 100 hp (75 kW) in later sporting models such as the Giulietta Sprint Speciale and the Giulietta Sprint Zagato. 1.3l engine had 74mm bore and 75mm stroke.
Veloce - Italian for fast, this beautiful, nimble and exciting car was recently chosen by Paolo Marcattilj to help him seal the FIA Trophy for Historic Regularity Rallies on the 2015 Rally of the Tests. At just 1290cc you may expect this vehicle to be under-powered - far from it, the engine is a twin cam four cylinder that feeds through sidedraught carburettors meaning the sound of this stunner matches the way it looks. A compact cockpit with a very period dash and trim, the Spider Veloce has original bucket seats that allow you to feel the car's feedback as you press on, a truly wonderful handling car as you would expect from Alfa Romeo.
This vehicle is available by invite only.
