Check Out This Beautifully Restored Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint

51w ago


You knew it was coming, so I’ll get it out of the way nice and early. This is one classic Alfa Romeo that hopefully won’t break down (for a while, at least). Behind the gorgeous looks, this car has been completely restored by Alfa – the company is launching a Classiche service to bring timeless models back to their best.

This 1955 Giulietta Sprint is project numero uno. And if this is just the start, we can’t wait to see what they’ll restore next. The baby-blue Giulietta looks like it’s come straight out of the factory – it truly is in time-warp condition. In fact, the photo looks like it was taken in the Fifties and colourised on PhotoShop.

In all fairness, there’s no one better to restore an old Alfa Romeo than Alfa itself. Authenticity is the top priority to keep the value of the car as sky-high as possible, and the Italians have their archived drawings and plenty of official parts to hand. Let Alfa meticulously tinker with your classic sports car, and you’ll receive a certificate of authenticity that’ll highlight its provenance.

But what if you have an Alfa that will one day become a classic? Do you have to wait for it to rot until it’s scooped up and restored?

Luckily, the company has your back. It’s also launching an Instant Classic service, which certifies modern models which will no doubt be collectable in the future. So if you’re one of the 108 people that have invested their pocket money in a Stelvio or Giulia Quadrifoglio NRING special edition, you’re covered. Both cars were launched to celebrate Alfa’s multi-blitzing of Nurburgring lap records.

The blue Giulietta Sprint belongs to Italian rock star Piero Pelu. Hope he doesn’t mind me putting his car on my wall. There’s scant mention of price because, if you need to know, you probably can’t afford it.

Which Alfa would you like restored?
