In 1962, Alfa Romeo began introducing improvements to the beloved Giulietta, paving the way for the more powerful Giulia. The most notable upgrade was a new, larger 1,570 cc engine that developed stronger torque and corresponding performance dividends. The taller motor was accommodated by a sporty hood featuring a wide inlet scoop.

While largely identical to the Pininfarina-bodied spider that preceded it, the Giulia Spider ofered an upgraded soft top and interior updates, such as a padded dashboard, black-faced instruments, and a handsome steering wheel with three aluminum spokes. The year 1965 saw the introduction of the Veloce-tuned Giulia, which was equipped with the uprated Weber-carbureted engine concurrently used in the Sprint Speciale and GTZ models.

This remarkable Spider has been owned for 30 years by a dedicated Italian car collector. Never restored, the beautiful Alfa Romeo has been dutifully maintained and garaged in a climate-controlled environment, receiving the same level of care as the consignor’s vintage Ferraris and Alfa race cars. Upgraded to powerful Veloce specifications early in its life, this car has more recently been treated to an engine rebuild by marque expert Jon Norman. This extremely authentic Giulia is equally suitable for display or driving events, a beautiful example of one of Alfa Romeo’s most esteemed spiders.
