Special Design Sprints
 
GET IN, SIT DOWN, HOLD ON
 
AND
 
SHUT UP

 

 

In here, you will find 3 special design Sprint variants that never came into production.

  1. The "Caimano" Sprint, designed also by Giugiaro, reminding more a space vehicle rather than a car. Everybody does mistakes !!!
  2. The powerful Sprint 6C model which was produced as a one-off experiment (only 200 pieces were ever produced to form the Alfa Romeo B- racing group), with a rear mounted Alfa 2.5 V6 engine (990Kgr, 160DIN, 21.7mpg / 4000rpm). You can't imagine how fast it was (1 Km in 27.3'', top speed 215 Km/h). This is something like THE dream car for all the Sprint lovers.
  3. The one and only Sprint 6C color domination.
  4. And here's the one of the very few pieces of the racer Sprint named GIOCATTOLO of the 400bhp V8 engine (mounted behind the front seats) made in Australia (picture found on an Austrlian Sprint page which you can visit from the Links page).

The 6C emperimental model (back). From this view, the similarity to Lancia Rallye, is undoubtable.

The 2 pictures below show the interior of the Sprint 6C. Sorry for the very low quality (I scanned a photocopy of a magazine), but I promise to replace them soon with color ones. Who wouldnt' dream of a car like this?
