Alfa Romeo – Giulia GTC

.

Vehicle Overview

In the intentions of the Alfa Romeo management, the Giulia GTC was to represent the spider version of the new “Giulia” range, completing the renewal of the cars belonging to the old “Giulietta” range. The maquette of the car was prepared by Bertone, based on a design by Giorgetto Giugiaro and the prototype was presented at the 1964 Turin Motor Show.

The refinement and assembly of the cars was, however, entrusted to the Touring coachbuilder which made some slight aesthetic changes and more substantial improvements to the chassis, aimed at strengthening it and, at the same time, limiting its weight. In fact the “GTC” has the same weight as the “GT” from which it derives.

The unusual decision to entrust the construction of the “GTC” to Touring was probably made in an attempt to relieve the prestigious Milanese coachbuilder from the economic crisis in which it had fallen, after the sudden death of Lord William Rootes, which had caused the unilateral breakdown of the contract with the Rootes Group, for which Touring had anticipated significant investments. At the same time, Bertone made no obstacles, finding itself heavily involved in the production of the “GT” and in starting production of the Fiat 850 Spider.
