First seen at the 1954 Turin Motor Show in coupé form, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta was intended to bring a small platform to Europe that could easily cut through their small streets with ease. Alfa went on to produce a saloon in 1955, and at the request of U.S. importer, Max Hoffman, a convertible variant of the Giulietta was also produced in that same year. The convertible was the model everyone wanted, and the spider helped increase Alfa Romeo’s awareness and popularity throughout Europe and especially in the United States.
The Giulietta in any form is a delight to drive and perhaps the best looking model of the entire Giulietta family, the spider was designed by Pininfarina, and quickly won the hearts of many when it was unveiled. An updated version was introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1959 and featured many changes, including new recessed headlights, a revised nose and grill design, and a redesigned dashboard for the interior.
Based on the Bertone-bodied Sprint, the spider used a variant of Alfa Romeo’s 1.3-litre four-cylinder engine, which produced 74 horsepower. Weighing in at 860kg, the spider was 55kg lighter than its coupé sibling, which meant improvements in performance and resulting in a top speed of close to 100 mph.
