This charming 1,300cc Giulietta Sprint Speciale by Bertone was converted to historic race car specification in Italy and granted FIA papers (period E / Class HGTS4) in 2005. Brought to the UK in 2011, the car was part of a large collection and campaigned by a prominent historic racer being maintained to a high standard by his inhouse mechanic.
It has recently been issued with new a new FIA HTP valid until 2025. The car is in good condition, the integrity of the body is good, especially underneath, and the engine is in great running order with plenty of power, no smoke or noises. Running on twin Weber carburetors and fitted with an oil cooler; it has its correct 5 speed gearbox, and is fitted with alloy wheels rather than steel and rare, upgraded 3 shoe front brakes bring the car to a halt.
A well prepared and maintained car, it is supplied with Italian ASI papers and old Italian registration documents that date back to 1967. There are just a handful of these cars now running in historic competitions throughout Europe as their values have more than doubled in the last five years.
A ready to race car, eligible for a whole host of leading historic events, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
