Alfa Romeo “Giulia Nuova Super 1300”, 1975
The Alfa Romeo Giulia was born as the successor of the Giulietta and will be produced from 1962 to 1977.
The Giulia was born during the Italian economic boom years and presents itself as a sporty sedan. The famous ad at the time read: “Giulia. The sedan that wins the races”.
The heart of the Giulia is what will become famous as Bialbero Alfa Romeo: an inline-4 with twin overhead camshafts, made completely of aluminum. Very advanced solutions for the period that gave the car high performances.
During the following years the coupé GT and the spider Duetto will complete the line, both built on the same (modified) chassis.
In 15 years they have made 1 million Giulias: this made it one of the most selling cars in Alfa Romeo’s history; 572.646 of them were sedans.
In 1974 the Giulia Nuova Super came out. This important restyling affected the interior and exterior, with a little-appreciated plastic grille in the front. Near the end of its career, the Giulia kept standing out for its performance as the best 1300cc sedan on the market 15 years its launch.
