About the Car

1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Berlina

The Alfa Romeo Giulia (105 series) is an Alfa Romeo automobile. Alfa was one of the first manufacturers to put a powerful engine in a light-weight car for mainstream production. The Alfa Romeo Giulia weighed about 1000 kg or 2200 pounds. The car was equipped with a light alloy twin overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine, similar to that of the earlier Alfa Romeo Giulietta models range. Engine capacities offered were 1.3-liter (1290 cc) or 1.6-liter (1570 cc). Various configurations of carbutettors and tuning produced power outputs from about 80 to about 110 bhp (55 to 75 kW). Almost all Giulias made had a 5-speed manual transmission. Alfa Romeo Giulia wes noted for its lively performance among sedans of that era, especially considering the modest engine size. The popular Super version with the twin carburettor 1.6 litre engine had a top speed of 170 km/h (106 mph). 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) took about 12 seconds. This performance was better than many sports cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
