The Giulietta Sprint was a compact car made by the Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo. Variations included the open two-seater Spider with convertible body work designed by Italy automaker Pininfarina. Other notable version were the Speciale and the station wagon,ColliPromiscua. In 1957 a more powerful Berlina version was produced, called the Giulietta TI (turismointernazionale). In 1956, Zagato rebuilt a crashed Sprint Veloce for racing. The car was successful, spurring the conversion of 18 more Sprints into SVZ racers. The cars were very successful racers, winning the FIA Sports car championship in 1962 and 1963. The Spider series went on to become its own line for Alfa Romeo, producing sleek two-seater sport cars until 1994.
