(from Alfa Romeo Press Release) 2015 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic 1954 Giulietta Sprint, the Paris show sees the world debut of the new Giulietta Sprint - the first in a whole class of vehicles, today's Gran Turismo models, and an acknowledged symbol of Italian genius.

Back in 1954, in the wake of its highly successful 1900, at the Turin Motor Show Alfa Romeo presented its Giulietta Sprint, an agile coupé model designed by Bertone, the first in the high-performance compact car segment. Suffice it to say that this was the first production car to be equipped with a race-derived, twin shaft engine entirely made of aluminium: the 1.3-litre, 4-cylinder power unit that enables this car to reach a top speed of 165 km/h, placing it right at the top of its class.

The Giulietta was the Fifties dream car of all motorists, the vehicle that, for the first time, made the desire of owning an Alfa Romeo an accessible one. Today's Giulietta Sprint is made in the same spirit, with, in addition, a more marked aesthetic characterisation, thrilling performance and top-class technological equipment.

Exterior

The new Sprint version stands out for its special badge on the outside, a sports rear bumper, oversized exhaust tailpipes and 5-hole Sprint 17" alloy wheels (18" wheels on request). The exterior styling of the new Giulietta Sprint is completed by the tinted rear windows and glossy anthracite finishes on the front grille, handles, rear-view mirror fairings and fog light frames.

Interior

The ultimate expression of Italian style is the result of painstaking attention to details and the use of high-quality materials. In particular, the black sports trim stands out, enhanced by the fabric and Alcantara Sprint seats with red stitching and logo on the headrests. Another standard feature is the leather-covered steering wheel with red stitching, while the dashboard and door panels have a sophisticated, carbon-coloured finish. The black roof lining and special mats complete the new version's interior.

Engines and transmissions

Among the main new features of the Sprint version is the brand-new 150 HP, 1.4 MultiAir Turbo Petrol engine, ensuring a top speed of 210 km/h and 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 8.2 seconds. This top-class level of performance is achieved with reduced fuel consumption and emissions: 5.6 l/100km and 129 g/km CO2.

At the core of the MultiAir is a new electrohydraulic valve management system that reduces fuel consumption by controlling air directly via the inlet valves (without using the throttle) and limits polluting emissions (via combustion control). As befits a flag-bearer for the downsizing concept, the versatile MultiAir technology is easily applied to all petrol engines.

The engine range also includes a 170 HP 1.4 Turbo Petrol MultiAir version - with Alfa TCT twin clutch automatic transmission - and 1.6 JTDM 105 HP, 2.0 JTDM 150 HP and 2.0 JTDM 175 HP Turbodiesel versions, the latter also with Alfa TCT. To complete the Giulietta Sprint range, the 120 HP 1.4 LPG Turbo engine offers a superb concentration of power and technology, combining top-notch performance, environmental-friendliness and low running costs.

Equipment

The new Giulietta Sprint comes with top-class equipment as standard including (according to markets): 5-hole Sprint 17" alloy wheels, sports rear bumper, oversized exhaust tailpipes, Sprint fabric and Alcantara seats with red stitching and logo on the headrests, carbon-coloured interior finishes, Cruise Control, rear parking sensors and dual-zone automatic climate control system.

Additionally, the new Sprint version includes the new Uconnect multimedia device with 5" or 6.5" touch-screen integrated in the dashboard. Both versions come complete with Bluetooth interface, Aux-in connector, USB port and voice commands. Last but not least, the 6.5" device also has a satellite navigation system with 3D bird's eye view maps, progressive route guidance and the 'One Step Voice Entry Destination' function for entering the required destination with voice commands. Both systems have been developed in collaboration with first-class partners: Harman and Here Auto for Uconnect 6.5" and Continental for Uconnect 5".
