Alfa Romeo 1300 Super Nuova
– Eleganza in movimento –
The Alfa Romeo Nuova Super 1300. A breed of Italian born to seduce the ‘sporty’ fathers of the family. Every time the roar gets the chance to burn off some steam you can feel your chest hair grow, this is real Italian passion! Due to the double overhead camshafts, the 1300 block has plenty of power; 103 hp for 1000 kilos.
In the years that Lancia, Fiat and Alfa Romeo were still fighting each other, Alfa Romeo was the leader in the field of small sporty cars. The nimbleness of the Alfa Romeo Giulia is best appreciated when driving the car through tight corners. Unfortunately not too tall drivers are forced into a somewhat strange, wide-legged seating position. The pedals hang a little too far away in the footwell and the beautiful wooden steering wheel has the dimensions of a ship’s wheel. Oh well, it’s part of the charm of a characterful Italian. An Italian like this Giulia 1300 Super, which looks even more beautiful from 1972 onwards thanks to the double round headlights.
Ours comes from Italy and has known only two owners so far. With her original booklets and Italian registration, this is one to be cherished. And that’s what she is so far; unrestored and yet no rust at all. That’s pretty special for an Italian from that time. The carabinieri also drove these Alfa’s at the time, without the inner headlights, which were made of gauze. Who will come and see it with us in the Clubhouse? Bring your sunglasses and stick-on mustache, for the way back.I'm interested in this object
