1955 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider
Why am I an Automotive Masterpiece?
The commercial success of the Giulietta Sprint induced Max Hoffman, Alfa Romeo importer in the USA, to promote an open version and a tender was called between the Carrozzeria Bertone and Pinin Farina in 1955. The former entrusted the task of interpreting the theme of a two-seater sports car to Franco Scaglione and proposed two units of an original prototype with a shorter wheel base compared to the Sprint model (2250 against 2380 mm) and a bodywork distinguished by strongly shaped fenders. It was not followed up in production.
