This terrific example of the Franco Scaglione-penned Sprint Speciale benefits from decades of Italian ownership and an award-winning restoration. According to Alfa Romeo archives, chassis 177324 was completed on January 31, 1962, finished in Argento (Silver), and sold to an owner in Padua, Italy. A vintage registration booklet demonstrates a progression of Italian ownership and documents its export in 2013.

According to the consignor, the car was restored between 2008–2009 by Kristoffer Cartenian of Gipimotor in Brussels. The Giulietta was purchased in December 2013 by the consignor from Mr. Cartenian. The consignor then sold it to Benny Caiola III of Scottsdale, Arizona, son of the well-known collector. In April 2016, Mr. Caiola traded the Alfa back to the consignor, who rebuilt the engine to a lively 1,430 cc specification for improved performance.

Exquisite in its current presentation, the Sprint Speciale has experienced only break-in mileage on the engine rebuild. Winner of Best Alfa Romeo at the 2014 Tutto Italiano held at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, Massachusetts, this Giulietta is documented with Italian registrations, invoices of the engine rebuild, and a corresponding dyno sheet.

It would be perfect for events like the Copperstate 1000, or display at concours d’elegance and marque events.
