Live from the Paris Motor Show: 1954 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint

alfa-romeo-giulietta-sprint-1954-paris-motor-show-1Alfa Romeo is celebrating the Giulietta’s 60th birthday by showcasing a very early model on its stand at this year’s edition of the Paris Motor Show. The car is wearing a private registration number which likely indicates it is owned by a private party, not by Alfa Romeo’s official museum.

The Giulietta was presented to the public for the first time at the 1954 edition of the Turin Motor Show. Early 750-series Giulietta Sprints stood out from the later 101-series models thanks to modifications like specific trim on the front fascia and a different cockpit. Additionally, Alfa moved the fuel filler neck from the trunk to the quarter panel.
