THE ALFA ROMEO GIULIA

Sporting elegant coachwork designed and built by Pininfarina, the 1.3-liter Giulietta Spider was a huge success and continued virtually unchanged in 1.6-liter Giulia guise when the latter joined the Alfa line-up in 1962. A bonnet air scoop, necessary to clear the larger engine's taller block, readily identified the new model. The capacity increase boosted maximum power of Alfa's classic twin-cam four cylinder from 80 to 92bhp and the car's top speed to 109mph. Reliability was likewise enhanced, and the larger engine was noticeably smoother and less fussy. The Giulia Spider is certainly one of the most attractive Alfa Romeos of its day and remains highly regarded among collectors around the world. 

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This sporting, vintage racing prepared Giulia benefits from having received a host of both cosmetic and mechanical performance enhancing upgrades. A period-correct, all-alloy DOHC Alfa Romeo 1,570cc engine is fitted, which was prepared for racing and fast street driving, when assembled some years ago. It breathes through a set of twin-choke Weber 40 DCOE carburetors, while race headers and a performance exhaust system has been fitted to exit the combustion. Electronic ignition is fitted, along with an oil cooler and Accusump oil system. An Alfa Romeo 4-speed gearbox is fitted, running into a posi-traction differential, while the suspension has been upgraded with Heim-joints, heavy-duty sway bar and Koni shock absorbers. Braking is handled by disc brakes in all four corners, and Panosport Alloy wheels puts the rubber to the ground. 

Excess road trim such as bumpers and windscreen has been removed, and the Pininfarina-designed and built Spider bodywork is painted in a very appropriate Italian flag livery, with yellow added to the mix. The cockpit sports Autometer gauges with shift light, a Recaro racing seat and Sparco steering wheel. A roll cage, fuel cell and onboard fire system is installed for safety. Many tech inspection and scrutineering labels are affixed to the roll bar, showing the Alfa Romeo has been raced for decades at many prominent vintage race meets. Here is a fun and competitive Alfa Romeo Spider for track use in the many vintage racing events held around the world.
