Technical details and facts about the Giulietta Sprint Veloce

Under the hood of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Veloce, there was a 1.3-liter inline-four-cylinder engine that, in the Veloce version, produced around 90 horsepower. This high power output for the time enabled the vehicle to reach a top speed of nearly 180 km/h (112 mph). Not only was this car fast, but it was also technologically innovative. Another remarkable feature was its lightweight construction. By incorporating aluminum for doors, hoods, and some body parts, the vehicle's weight was reduced, enhancing its performance. The predecessor of the Giulietta was the Alfa Romeo 1900, which was more of a sedan and lacked the sporty attributes of the Giulietta Sprint Veloce.
