Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale SS 1964 For Sale
"The rarefied glamour of a coach built classic with levels of performance that are more in keeping with altogether more youthful cars". Motor Sport, June 2008
This vehicle has a new current clean MOT
Manufactured on the 8th January 1964, chassis AR 380784 was sold to Alfa Romeo UK in July of that year. Ruddspeed, the specialist tuning company of motor sport ace Ken Rudd, was commissioned to covert 25 of the beautiful Giulia SS's for Alfa Romeo UK into Right Hand Drive. This is one of those cars.
Most Alfa Romeo's of the period led a tough life, the harsh British weather ravishing the Italian (and in this case Bertone) bodywork. However, this SS has always been well cared for and its 61,000 miles regularly documented.
Many original features, often lost over the course of time, are retained including the original jack, radio, a very rare spare windscreen and an enormous history file. This SS is a well known Giulia Sprint Speciale, appearing in numerous publications including:

History of the Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale
The Sprint Speciale debuted at the Turin Auto Salon of 1957 and was offered as a more luxurious version of the popular Giulietta, as it was built with lightweight construction and racing in mind. It was styled after Franco Scaglione’s three futuristic B.A.T. show cars and the popular Disco Volante racing cars. The design by Carrozzeria Bertone featured striking high fenders and a rounded roofline. This amazingly aerodynamic design boasts a drag coefficient of only .29, which is incredibly low, even by modern standards. Under the hood was the potent 1.3-liter, Veloce-specification twin-cam engine, which was equipped with twin two-barrel Weber carburetors and produced 100hp. While the original model was known as the Giulietta Sprint Speciale (or the Giulietta SS), a more refined version first appeared at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show. This new model was named the Giulia Sprint Speciale (or the Giulia SS) and featured the larger 1.6 liter engine from the Giulia Sprint Veloce and was rated at over 110hp. The interior was more refined with leather wrapping underneath the dashboard. With enhanced performance and more luxury the Giulia Sprint Speciale was a praised model for style, performance and luxury when new. With only 25 Right Hand Drive examples produced until 1966, examples are highly sought-after by car enthusiasts and collectors today!
