A brief history of Alfa Romeo Giulietta

The first Alfa Romeo Giulietta appeared in 1954, when at the Turin Motor Show was presented a two-door coupe Giulietta Sprint design Nuccio Bertone. Compact beauty with the motor 1.3 so popular that stopped in 1962, production had to renew for another year (in 1964) because of the pent-up demand. But the new horizons opened for Alpha another Giulietta - a four-meter sedan with the same engine, submitted in 1955. Quintuple room, twin-shaft "four" 1.3, the maximum speed of 136 km / h - even with a 53-horsepower engine Giulietta was considered the most athletic and fastest car in the class, and most importantly - cost only slightly more expensive classmates and almost twice cheaper than other sedan of those years, the larger Alfa Romeo 1900. in 1957-1959 produced wagon Gradienta Colli Promiscua. Production of the sedan turned in 1964, Giulietta Sprint and Giulietta Spider in different versions were produced until 1965. Volumes for the first time for Alfa Romeo models become widespread - 132,000 sedans and station wagons, 37,000 coupes, 27,000 roadsters. 

In place of Juliet in 1962 came Giulia, technically related predecessor, but larger and more powerful - 4140 mm in length, 90-horsepower 1.6-liter, six-seater salon (in the version with the check point lever on the steering column). This success earned Julia only in 1964, when there was a version with a 80-horsepower engine 1.3. With numerous upgrades - stylistic and technical - Giulia produced before 1978: all were produced 573,000 sedans and station wagons plus 226,000 coupes and convertibles.
