The Giulia Sprint GT was Alfa Romeo’s first shot at a sports car based on the Giulia platform. While the Giulia was first offered as a four-seater, the Sprint GT was marketed as a 2+2, as the rear seat was very compact. While it appears boxy, the Sprint GT was quite aerodynamic. “GT” stands for “Gran Turismo” or “Grand Touring”, which denotes a high-performance version.
Some of the body and styling differences between the standard Giulia and the Sprint included the Bertone body scalino or “step nose”, because the lip of the engine compartment lid was configured to ride 1/4 an inch above the front of the car. The Sprint GT also had a flat, rectangular grille without chrome bars. It also had solid chrome bumpers with no additional ornamentation.
The performance of the car topped that of the earlier Giulia models. It had an advertised top speed of 112 mph; though, when car magazines put it through its paces for their reviews, it actually performed slightly better. It could accelerate from 0- 60 mph in 9.6 seconds, which was very respectable for its era.
Other features of the Sprint GT included an all-synchromesh 5-speed manual transmission and 4 wheel Dunlop disk brakes. Throughout its production run from 1963-1965, 21,902 Giulia Sprint GT were built, including 2274 right-hand drive models.
