Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint launched

In 1954, the original Giulietta Sprint was launched. Alfa Romeo has realised (seemingly just in time) that this year marks the model’s 60th anniversary, so to celebrate a Sprint trim grade has been added to the current Giulietta range.

The new arrival is based on the existing Progression variant. Its extra equipment includes a set of  17” five-hole alloy wheels, extended side skirts, a rear diffuser, black window surrounds and a anthracite finish for the front fog light bezels, door mirror caps, door handles and front grille.

The interior meanwhile gains cloth and Alcantara upholstery, red stitching, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, carbon fibre-effect trim, sports instruments, a darkened headlining and bespoke floor mats.

A major specification highlight is the engine. Although it’s the familiar 1.4 litre MultiAir turbocharged petrol unit, the version in the Giulietta Sprint uniquely produces 148 bhp (110 kW / 150 PS) with 250 Nm (184 lb/ft) of peak torque.

That output, which is delivered via a six-speed manual transmission, is enough for a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 8.2 seconds and a 130 mph (210 km/h) top speed.  Efficiency isn’t too bad either, as the combined cycle figures for fuel economy and CO2 emissions are 49.6 mpg (5.7 l/100km) and 131 g/km respectively.

Sales of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint are due to begin in early 2015. In the UK, on-the-road prices start from £20,490.
