description
The commercial success of the Giulietta Sprint induced Max Hoffman, Alfa Romeo importer in the USA, to promote an open version and a tender was called between the Carrozzeria Bertone and Pinin Farina in 1955.
Pinin Farina won the contract for the production of the Spider overcoming Bertone, which presents a proposal of high impact, but also of great building complexity.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta prototype with chassis 0007 is the end of the development of the new Milanese cabriolet, that will have a resounding success remaining in production for more then ten years and becoming an icon of those years.
The first three prototypes have a wraparound windshield bad suitable to a big production, which is abandoned in this specimen, which debuted at the Paris Salon of 1955, earning an instant success.
Like all early examples this car mounts the front bolts, according to the tastes of american customers, to whom the car is initially intended, but shows a unique dashboard, similar to the Lancia Aurelia B24 one.
