Petrolicious: Alfa Giulietta Sprint Zagato


The Petrolicious gang is back with another great video! This one beautifully captures the essence of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta SZ. Zagato designs odd looking little cars and this one is typically striking in look. Beneath the funky sheetmetal is Alfa’s excellent all aluminum twin cam four in “Veloce” spec with twin Weber side draft carbs. The sound these cars make is intoxicating. This one is 1.3 liters and offers plenty of involvement in running through canyons. If there ever was a car that epitomized the adage that “it is more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow”, this is it. With modest power, you get to rip through 3 or 4 gears where a more powerful car would only give you two. Tons of fun.

Credit and thanks to Petrolicious!
