To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the original 1954 Giulietta Sprint, Alfa Romeo has introduced the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint in the UK. The Sprint model features unique 17-inch five-hole design alloy wheels; carbon-effect door panels and dashboard surrounds; leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching and new seats with cloth Alcantara upholstery; exclusive bespoke “Sprint” wing badges; and “Sprint” logos embroidered in the headrests.

Under the hood, there’s a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque. The car can reach 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 8.2 seconds and further to a top speed of 130 mph (210 km/h). Priced from £20,490, the Giulietta Sprint will go on sale in early 2015.

The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint celebrates a key moment in Alfa Romeo’s heritage: the 60th anniversary of the launch of the original Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint, a car that struck a chord with the public thanks to its stunning looks and relative affordability, resulting in Alfa Romeo’s transition from a low-volume specialist manufacturer to that of a successful “premium” car brand, long before the term had entered the automotive lexicon.

Like the original Giulietta Sprint, the new version is also powered by an engine of less than 1,400cc in capacity, but for 2014 it is equipped with MultiAir valve management and an intercooled turbocharger to boost its power output to more than twice that of the original Sprint’s 1.3-litre twin-cam engine. The new 1.4-litre TB MultiAir petrol engine produces 150hp and 250Nm of torque and can propel the new Giulietta Sprint from 0-62mph in just 8.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 130mph, while its combined-cycle fuel efficiency figure is 49.6mpg and its CO2 emissions are just 131g/km.
