1966 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce


A very rare opportunity to buy what could possibly be the very best Sprint GTV in the world!

Introduced by Alfa Romeo in 1966 as a more powerful and sporting version of the Sprint GT, the Sprint GTV was instantly propelled to the top of the 105 series range. The ‘V’ stood for Veloce – the Italian word for ‘speed’ and in fact this was the first model to be known as a GTV. With green Quadrifoglio enamel badges adorning the C-pillars, this was the first time Alfa Romeo used the infamous Quadrifoglio on a non-competition derived model, introduced to signify its top of the range offering. Horsepower increased to 109BHP, but the greatest difference in performance came from increased torque from a newly designed cylinder head with revised inlet port geometry. Along with the performance improvements, the exterior styling was revised to feature a new grille, lightweight stainless steel bumpers, Quadrifoglio badges on the C-pillars and a chromed Veloce script on the back panel. The interior was also updated with a wooden dashboard fascia, a smaller diameter steering wheel, new sporting front seats with increased lateral support and locking back rests, accompanied by a thinner light weight rear seat.

Offered direct from the Alfaholics collection, this is an exceptionally rare opportunity to purchase a stunning example of a Sprint GTV. First registered in Italy on the 7th May 1966 with targa ROMA 940955, the car was supplied by Autosalone Barberini Roma – the dealer badge still appearing on the back panel to this day. It remained in Rome, with only 4 owners spanning the first 49 years of its life, until Richard Banks of Alfaholics discovered the car in 2015. With just 97,000 kms from new, the car presented in wonderful condition – the bodywork, paintwork and interior all completely original. Accompanying the car was the original handbook, service book (stamped from first delivery through to its 36,000kms coupon) and the original Autovox stereo instruction book.

On arrival in the UK, we made a full assessment of the car, finding it to be in fantastic original condition throughout. All the body panels were original with no evidence of corrosion or repairs or damage, original spot welds visible throughout the body. The interior was also completely original, right down to the factory rubber heel mats and pedal rubbers. We carefully removed the exterior trims and lights, removed the mechanicals and completed a full exterior and engine bay repaint in the correct Bianco Spino AR013 colour. Once completed, the suspension was blasted, re-coated black and fully re-bushed. The brakes were refurbished with new discs, calipers and hydraulics. The interior was treated to a careful deep clean to reveal its excellent opriginal condition with lovely light patination. The factory Carrello headlights, rare chrome 1 st series rear lights and grilles were cleaned and polished and refitted, along with all the original window glass. We also chose to install our fast road suspension kit B, as well as our sand cast magnesium 15” wheels. The Campagnolo magnesium wheels were a special-order option from the factory in period and were standard fit on the Ti Super model. The lightweight wheels and suspension kit transform the car’s handling and are an excellent upgrade for regular use in modern traffic.

Kept in our temperature and humidity controlled showroom since completion, the car has been thoroughly enjoyed and only seen dry weather use.
