This Giuletta Sprint Veloce came out the Bertone plant at Grugliasco, Italy on the 16th of July 1957. This car is an official factory lightweight weighing in at a scant 780kg’s, the “750E” was a 100kg’s lighter than the 750B and was conceived to take on Porsche’s in the 1300 Class ‘European races where previous models were left wanting. Lightweight aluminium doors, boot lid and bonnet also helped further reduce the weight even with a larger fuel tank. The ‘raciness’ didn’t stop there…later in its life, A 1969 1600cc 105 series engine was sent to Conrero in Italy for their special modification treatment where it came back with a 5-speed box and special differential. The suspension, brakes and all other go faster bits were upgraded too including the dynamic bodywork which was built in-house in 1959. This was based off a combination of the Zagato and BAT 7 front-end to become more aerodynamically efficient.
This “one of one” Alfa certainly looks striking. In the flesh it has a presence that packs a punch far higher than its small size. The car comes out of big collection in which renowned collector, Jannie Geldenhuis who has owned most of his vehicles for 15 to 40yrs. Jannie restored the car over a period of 7 years, starting in 2005 with its first long distance trip taking place in 2012. A thorough and detailed account of the nut and bolt restoration is on file. It has been a super fun and fast drivable vehicle used for road trips, track days, breakfast runs and car shows with the most recent being a drive to and from the 2023 George Motor show.
