1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA

In 1965, Alfa Romeo introduced the Giula GTA model designed by Bertone. 500 cars were produced for homologation purpose to race in the European Touring Championship. Autodelta, directed by Carlo Chiti, prepared these racing GTA's.

AR#613642 is one of the first GTA's prepared by Autodelta. Carlos Lepro from Uruguay purchased the car in August 1965. Carlos anticipated that the 1965 'C' Class of the IX Gran Premio de Turismo International Argentina, would be very competitive in view of many Argentinean drivers racing with the newest Fiat 1500 C. Carlo won his class, finished third overall.

This win constitutes the first win for an Alfa Romeo GTA in a race sponsored by the Federation International Automobile (FIA).

the current owner was 19 years old when he watched Carlos Lepro racing his Giulia in his native Argentina in 1965. He found AR#613642 35 years later in North Carolina.
