The 101 Series Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider evolved from the earlier Pininfarina designed Giulietta; the main change was the introduction of the larger 1570 cc twin cam power plant which required the bonnet to be changed to accommodate the slightly higher engine. Hens the air intake on the bonnet on the 101 model.
The car on offer is a very rare original factory produced right-hand drive version (Giulia 1600 Spider), of which only 404 were made and this car was first registration on the 1st of June 1965 in London.
All Alfa Romeo Giulia 1600 spider RHD where produced in 1963 and 1964 and due to the import duty into the UK these cars where more expensive then the Jaguar E Type at that time.
At some stage the car was converted to the Veloce specifications which entailed the fitting of different engine mountings, to increase the angle of the engine to allow the steering column to fit under the now fitted twin Weber carburettors. In order to compensate for the now steeper slant of the engine a new sump and oil pick up had to be fitted as well. Alfa Romeo never produced the RHD version in the Veloce specifications which makes this car even more desirable.
The car is a joy to drive and turns heads wherever you go with it.
