Description: This historically important Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA has the Italian issued FIA Historic Technical Passport (Class CT 8, Period: F) and a substantial historic and current in-period racing history. The accompanying information sheet (issued 1988) from the Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo confirms the build date as 4th June 1965 and the date of sale to the first owner as 15th June that same year. The first owner is listed as Scagliola Michelino of Turin. In 1988 the Alfa was acquired by Scuderia del Portello which is the official worldwide club for historic racing cars based at the Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese (Milan). The Alfa embarked on an equally successful career in historic racing, including the FIA European Challenge for Historic Touring Cars, the Coppa Intereuropa di Monza, the 100 ore di Modena Classic and the Historic Sicilian Targa Florio. This Alfa is known as the Princess of Goodwood and like all Scuderia del Portello cars, participated with great success. The Alfa was recently sold by Interauto Motorsport and became one of the stars at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014 with Bonhams Auction. It was auctioned for a world record price of € 253.000 (LOT 367). Never before has an Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA sold for this amount anywhere in the world. This is an example of the cars that Interauto Motorsport provides to their clients to participate in significant races, rallies and tours within Europe.

Eligible Events: all historic racing and rally events in Europe. International racing license is COMPULSORY.
