1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale

The Sprint Speciale (SS) was offered as a more luxurious Giulietta that was made with light weight construction and competition in mind. The cars came with a fully equipped interior and since they were much cheaper than the full blown Sprint Zagato, Alfa Romeo sold 1,366 examples.
In 1963, the Giulietta SS was re-engined and became the Giulia SS during the production car's introduction. The only real change was the new 112bhp 1570cc DOHC engine from the Giulia. Later into production, the car received disc brakes at the front.
