With the launch of the 1900 in 1950, then of the Giulietta in 1954, a new period began for Alfa Romeo, that of the post-war period marked by a relative democratization of the models and a strong industrial growth.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta was first launched in a Sprint coupe in April 1954, just before the launch of the sedan, which is relatively rare. The Giulietta Sprint, beautifully designed by Bertone, immediately meets a very favorable reception.
The following year, the Giulietta saloon (April 1955) and the spider (September) were unveiled in succession, de Spider initially launched at the request of the American market.
Bertone and Pinin Farina both presented their version of the spider. Pininfarina won for two reasons: Bertone's drawing was a bit more difficult to achieve, and the latter was already busy with the partial production of the Giulietta Sprint.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta spider (type 750 D) was introduced first at the 1955 Paris Motor Show, where great success thanks to its beautiful bodywork by Touring. The Veloce version, more powerful and sophisticated, was presented simultaneously.
Slightly overhauled in 1961, the Giulietta gives way the following year to the Giulia Spider (type 101.23), which in the end is a rebellished Giulietta, equipped with the mechanics of the new Giulia TI sedan (1.6-liter engine and five-speed gearbox). The 2000 will follow soon after. The Spider gives way in 1965 to Spider Duetto.
