Stylizowana przez studio Pinin Farina Giulietta Spider ma mniejszy o 50 milimetrów rozstaw osi niż Sprint. Sprint Veloce ma silnik o mocy zwiększonej do 90 KM, dzięki zastosowaniu innych gaźników, wałków rozrządu i zwiększeniu stopnia sprężania. W nadwoziu zastosowano aluminiowe drzwi, pokrywy i błotniki oraz pleksiglasowe szyby boczne i tylną.

Giulietta Sprint

Sprint (1290 cm³, 65 KM)
Veloce (1290 cm³, 115 KM) - new model

Using the same basic two-door body, Alfa also introduced an alternative high speed model to the Giulietta Sprint, to be known as the Veloce. Two twin-choke Webers help to increase the output to 115 b.h.p. at 5,000 r.p.m. and the claimed maximum speed is a shade under 120 m.p.h. It has the same five-speed gear box as on the Sportiva, with floor mounted lever.

The second series of the 1900 Super is introduced with two-tone colour treatment and chrome-plated strips on the body sides-another tendency, yet restrained, which is creeping into Italian styling.

Displayed in true Italian red is Alfa Romeo's new Bertone-bodied Sportiva Coupé, with new chassis and four-cylinder 1,975 c.c. engine. It has an increased rating of 135 b.h.p. at 5,500 r.p.m. The claimed speed is 130 m.p.h., which the shape and specification suggest is not an impossible figure. Two twin-choke horizontal Weber carburettors are used to obtain the increased power output. A steeply falling bonnet line is matched by the raked and wrapped-round screen, which permits first-class vision to match the performance. The two seats are placed low between the propeller-shaft tunnel and the frame side members, and are noteworthy for their hammock-type cushions which provide really firm support where it is needed. The new box-section frame (with similar cross-members) is part space-type construction at the rear, to accommodate the top anchorages of the combined coil springs and dampers. At their lower ends the springs and dampers are mounted behind the main tube of the de Dion axle, and are thus inclined forward at the top. The axle tube is located fore and aft by a triangulated member, pivoted at a single point forward on the chassis centre line. Fore and aft location is by a Watts bar and link behind the de Dion tube. The chassis-mounted final drive casing also incorporates the inboard, bi-metal drum rear brakes and there is a very short universal drive shaft to each wheel; these are of Rudge knock-off pattern, made by Borani. A five-speed gear box is part of the specification of this car-latest contender in the select band capable of a speed in excess of 120 m.p.h.
