Giulietta SS ‘Low Nose’


With the introduction of the new aerodynamic Bertone-bodied Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale at the Turin Auto Show in 1957, the Milanese manufacturer offered a true alternative to the Type 750 Competizione. Lower floor pans allowed a lower roof line whilst the radiator was also lowered to allow a sleeker bonnet line, which resulted in the ‘low nose’ moniker. Of only 101 Giulietta SSs produced, This one is one of the rare aluminium versions, of which only 10 were thought to have been produced.

116 bhp, 1,290 cc dual overhead cam four-cylinder engine, with dual Weber DC03 carburettors, four-speed manual overdrive transmission, independent front suspension with unequal-length A-arms and coil springs, live axle with coil springs rear suspension, and hydraulic front disc with rear drum brakes.
