Launched in 1963, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Bertone. The well-proportioned 2+2 coupe carried a distinctive scalino – or “stepnose” – front end where the hood’s leading edge sat above the nose. Largely borrowed from the 105-series sedan, underpinnings included a 1.6-liter, DOHC engine, taut chassis, independent front suspension, live rear axle, and four-wheel disc brakes.
According to its Italian libretto on file, this Giulia GT Veloce was sold new to Pietrino Beccu of Padova, Italy, on October 19, 1966. After passing through the hands of three additional Italian owners, it was purchased by Raffaele Guido of Torino in 2010. Around this time, Sig. Guido prepared the Alfa Romeo for competition use, and entered historic events in Italy, as documented by photos on file. In 2016, an FIA Historic Technical Passport was processed showing the Giulia’s conformance to FIA Class CT 13 specification. Dynamometer test charts on file from 2016 suggest the Alfa Romeo produces 145 hp at 7,200 rpm. Highlights include a Merin SFT/2865 fuel cell, racing seats with harnesses, and a roll bar. The Giulia was purchased by Leo Schigiel in 2017, and it became part of his predominantly Italian collection of cars and motorcycles. Offered with its history file and numerous spare parts left over from its motor sports-focused restoration, this Giulia Sprint GT Veloce will afford its next owner access to many exciting and historic racing events.
