1st registration : 09-15-1964 The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale and Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale (both 101-series) (also known as the Giulia SS) are small sports cars manufactured by Alfa Romeo from 1959 to 1966. The first prototype of the Giulietta SS was presented in 1957 at the Turin Motor Show. After two more prototypes were presented in car shows, the official presentation of the production version for the press was on 24 June 1959 on the Monza race track. First 101 cars produced had "low nose" and 750SS designation. 100 cars minimum were needed to homologate a car in FIA regulations. All these cars had steel bodies with aluminium trunk, hood and doors. Also first cars were equipped with Weber 40 DCO3 carburetors, later changed to 40 DCOE2. There were some all-aluminium cars produced. The drag coefficient of the Sprint Speciale is 0.28, the same as a Corvette C6, and was not improved for more than 20 years. Cars used the 1,290cc Alfa Romeo Twin Cam engine, a design with hemispheric combustion chambers and valves controlled directly by twin overhead camshafts. The Sprint Speciale was a real race car to compete with the Porsche 356. It has a front engine with rear wheel drive. Small changes to a production version included steel doors, Weber 40 DCOE2 carburetors, higher front nose, removal of plexiglas windows. Bumpers were fitted front and rear, also cars had some minimal sound-proofing. With the 1,290cc engine and 100 hp (75 kW) of power the maximum speed was around200 km/h (120 mph). The 1300 cc engine and gearbox was the same as used in race-oriented Giulietta Sprint Zagato. All Giuliettas SS had 3-shoe drum brakes at front wheels and drum brakes at the rear. Export versions had 101.17 designation. Side badges had "Giulietta Sprint Speciale" script. 1,366 Giulietta Sprint Speciale and 1,400 Giulia Sprint Speciale were produced. 25 cars were converted to right hand drive by RuddSpeed.
