In February 1965, Alfa Romeo introduced something that became a thing of legend – the Giulia Sprint GTA .
It was in the early 60’s that Alfa Romeo would make promise to get back in touch with its racing roots.
The well renowned car manufacturer decided to do this by capitalising on its new Giulia line-up with a competition model.
The Giulia Sprint was also referred to as the “105”.
Visually it was quite similar to the standard Giulia GT, however it was reengineered from an affordable sports car to an incredible killer vehicle.
In order to succeed in creating this fierce vehicle, Alfa Romeo focused on weight reduction to make the car lighter.
The Giulia Sprint GTA well and truly lived up to its name. It had a five-speed manual gearbox, a high revving inline four-cylinder engine, and four disc brakes.
The car body was made up of aluminium with the roof being an exception, which was made from an exotic alloy.
Most of the Giulia Sprint GTA (Corsa) cars were made for racing, including the Stradale, which were designed for road.
It’s rare to find an undisturbed Giulia Sprint GTA nowadays, however there have been reported cases where original owners have kept the cars untouched.
