1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce

Alfa Romeo introduced the Giulietta Sprint in 1954 and by 1956 released the sporty Giulietta Sprint Veloce. The most performance oriented version was the Alleggerita which was a lightweight edition aimed at events such as the Targa Florio and Mille Miglia. The car was styled at Bertone and given Plexiglas side and rear windows, removal of sound deadening materials and no rear seat, lightweight bucket seats, and aluminum doors and an aluminum hood. In this guise, the car enjoyed success in events such as the Daytona 3 Hours, Sebring 12 Hours, and the Coupe des Alpes. The combined racing success of the vehicle amassed nearly 500 wins over its career. The exact number of these lightweight Alleggerita model is not known, but estimated to be between 100 to 200 examples.
