At that time people said, that the Giulia was designed by the wind.
The Giulia 1600 Saloon debuted with a dumfounding design, with a superb drag co-efficient (0,34) which was a fantastic result at that time. Giulia was offered with several versions, beside the Saloon (5 door), Alfa manufactured a Coupé (Sprint) and a Spider version. Giulia counts as the most popular Alfa ever made. The design was made by Pininfarina, Bertone and Zagato.
The basic version was already sporty (at that time) with its 1.3 litre engine, and offered a sporty suspension and driving experience. The 1.6 litre unit, which produced 100 horses, helped the Giula to reach a maximum speed of 165 km/h. These cars were installed with rear wheel drive system, according to the 60’s carmaking style. The engine range stood from four parts. a 1.3, 1.6, 1.8 petrol, and a 1.8 litre diesel engine put in motion the 1 tonne chassis. The most famous sport versions were made by Zagato, named az TZ1 and TZ2, and on that time started the GTA history, which exists nowadays too.
Its technique was outstanding, just like other Alfa’s. The engines had duble camshafts, and made from aluminium, independent suspension cared about the corner stability and 4 disc brakes slowed down the car.
