In 1963, the Giulia Sprint GT was first shown to the press at Alfa’s recently opened plant in Arese, followed later that month when the public got a look at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The body was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro for Bertone and the look was a progression and modernization of the 101 series, while the Giulia name denoted larger engine displacement from the previous Giulettas. This was considered the most sporty offering in Alfa’s line up at the time. In 1964, a convertible version, modified by Touring and known as the GTC, was created with a short run of just 1000 units. Even though much of the drive train was a carryover it was a formidable combination. The Sprint GT carried on, until 1966, with the introduction of the next evolution, the Sprint GTV. The GTV, first seen at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 1966, had a revised engine with larger exhaust valves, offering a bit more power and significantly more torque.
