About the car
This car was built by Italian car manufacturer, Alfa Romeo, as part of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta family produced from 1954 to 1965. This car comes in a body style of a 2+2 coupé with a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The Sprint was produced from 1954 to 1962 with 24,084 made by Alfa Romeo.
The Giulietta Sprint had a 1.3 litre naturally aspirated inline 4-cylinder engine with a 4-speed manual gearbox. This reaches a maximum top speed of 103mph (166 km/h), 79 bhp at 600 rpm (revs per seconds) and achieved a 0-60mph time of 13.2 seconds.
A unique feature on the car was the floor-mounted gear stick pointed towards the driver, which proved to be a rather unpopular feature upon first review. This car comes in multiple colours, this one being blue.
