ALFA ROMEO GIULIA SPIDER 1963
Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider
Designed by Giovanni Battista Pininfarina himself, only 8,850 Giulia Spider models were built from 1962 to 1965. However, this wonderful model was made for the American importers of Alfa Romeo. It was Hoﬀmann of New York who asked the top of the Biscione to produce a spider version of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint and immediately committed to buying 2,500 exemplar to be oﬀered on the North American market. After a comparison between the ideas presented by Bertone and Pininfarina, the choice fell on the more “traditional” proposal of the second stylist.
Giulia Spider is the natural heir of the Giulietta Spider from which it diﬀers in terms of engine, 1600 instead of 1300 and the air intake on the hood. Other small diﬀerences are in the steering wheel and in the appearance of the dashboard. It represents the pinnacle of Alfa Romeo sports spider production, an authentic dream for entire generations. The Giulia spider participated in dozens of ﬁlms in the 1960s, identifying herself with the idea of freedom and success.
