Coachwork by Bertone
In 1963, Alfa Romeo unveiled the all-new Giulia Sprint on the improved 105-series chassis. Equipped with an alloy, twin-cam engine, four wheel disc brakes, and a brilliant five-speed gearbox, the Sprint was a world-class GT that combined Giugiaro-styled Bertone coachwork with the lively performance of a fine Italian sports car. The most collectible examples of the Giulia Sprint are the “scalina” cars, built between 1963 and 1968, distinguished by their slim “step-nose” fitment of the hood. The rare Veloce models are particularly sought after by enthusiasts who prize the GTV’s performance-tuned engine and sporting bucket seats.
The GT Veloce presented here is outstanding in all respects and likely the finest restored example to be presented at auction in years. Delivered new in Germany, this 1968 GTV was recently treated to a ground-up restoration by Swan Restoration of Newbury Park, California. The high-quality restoration was performed with an eye to authenticity, and the car is elegantly finished in black with red upholstery.
Excellent examples of the “step-nose” Sprint GT rarely come up for public sale and we encourage a closer look at this rare and desirable Veloce. Here is a striking, 1960s Alfa Romeo that is sure to reward its new owner with the unforgettable performance of an Italian thoroughbred and thrills on the open road.
