History of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta was first presented at the Turin Motor Show in 1954. Four different series of the Giulietta have been released, the 750 (1954-1959), the 101 (1959-1965), the type 116 (1977-1985) and the 940 (2010- to present). Originally the Giulietta was introduced as a coupé in 1954, the Giulietta Sprint. In 1955 a sedan and an open top two seater, named the Giulietta Spider, were released in 1956. A far more powerful Berlina model, the Giulietta TI (Turismo Internazionale) was introduced in 1957. The Giulietta went through a restyling in 1959 which gave birth to the new 101 series. The restyling changes included a new redefined nose with recessed lights and rounded wings as well as the fuel tank being incorporated into the right hand side rear fender. In 1961 the Alfa Romeo Giulietta received more modification, this time a more powerful engine and a few new body styling features, production of the 101 series carried on until 1965. The all new type 116 Giulietta was introduced in November 1977, although this new model used the Giulietta name it was a totally new chassis design incorporating a rear mounted transaxle and was based on the Alfa Romeo Alfetta. The type 116 Giulietta was only ever available as a saloon or estate car. In 1981 the Giulietta was both internally and externally restyled, these modifications were only minor cosmetic features. It was in 1982 when the type 116 Giulietta Turbodelta was debuted at Paris motor show. A turbo diesel Giulietta was also released at the same time and this model went on to break several world speed records in the same year. The "84" Giulietta or Series 3, as it was also known as, was introduced in 1983. The Alfa Romeo Giulietta had gone through yet another redesign, mainly it was the bumpers and dashboard that were restyled.
