1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia White Manual, 5 speed Left Hand Dr... (2024)

The Alfa Romeo Giulia TI Super was the first Alfa touring car fine-tuned for international motorsport by the in-house Autodelta competitions department. This makes it the forebear of everything from the 1600 GTA through the GTV6 on to the high-tech 155 TI DTM and beyond. The TI Super was one of the first projects undertaken by ex-Ferrari Formula 1 designer Carlo Chiti’s Autodelta organisation after it was incorporated into Alfa in 1963. It breathed on the four-box saloon Giulia TI to create the TI Super, a more powerful and lighter racing special aimed at what was then called the European Touring Car Challenge (generally known as the ETC). The engine specification was borrowed from the existing Giulietta Sprint Speciale coupé. The 45 DCOE twin-choke Weber carburettors raised the power output from the standard TI’s shade more than 100bhp to something in the region of 130bhp. The TI Supers were rated at 127bhp, but race versions of the time had closer to 145 bhp. The better part of 100 kilos were taken out. There were lighter door panels, a new front grille with two fewer headlights, revised bumpers, plexiglass rear windows (and no front-quarter lights) and magnesium alloy wheels that had been first seen on the Giulia TZ coupé. That all contributed to the 910kg hom*ologation minimum.

The car was launched at Monza in April 1963, but the 500 examples required for the ETC’s Group 2 rules (total production of TI Supers hit 501) weren’t completed until the following May. That allowed the car to compete in the ETC. A TI Super entered under the Jolly Club banner with future Formula 1 racer Andrea de Adamich on the driving roster claimed a third in class at the Brands Hatch 6 Hours in June, a precursor to a one-two-three result at Monza at the end of the year. Grand prix winner Giancarlo Baghetti claimed outright victory aboard a Jolly Club-entered car in the 650km race. Back at Monza for the ’65 series opener, the TI Super dominated the four-hour race for cars entered in divisions 2 and 3 (the multi-class ETC mixed and matched its various categories in its early years). De Adamich and Sandro Arcioni took the laurels, with other Giulias in second, third and sixth.

The example we are offering for sale is a fabulous Alfa Romeo Giulia Super saloon (pre-66 Touring Cars, FIA, App. K), meticulously built to TI Super specifications. This car was race prepared during 2022-2023, using only new and fully refurbished parts sourced by Alfaholics, MyAlfa / Bertlesbeck, Classic Alfa, OKP, Alfa-Delta, etc. Hundreds of hours of work spent, no expense spared, resulting in this brilliant looking competition touring car. The car is race ready (on the button) and comes with a fresh FIA HTP which is valid until 31/ 12/ 2033. After finishing, the Alfa Romeo was tested on the track (Zolder) to complete the final racing specification. The Giulia is eligible for all types of pre-66 historic series like, Peter Auto/ Tour Auto Super-Sixties Series, Masters Historic Series, Goodwood Revival, Modena Cento Ore, Alfa Revival Cup, FHR Endurance Series, etc.

The bodyshell was fully stripped to bare metal, seam welded, repainted in Bianco Spino and finished to the original Jolly Club specification, which suits this racecar brilliantly. An FIA approved/ certified bespoke 6 point roll-cage is fitted, together with Sparco EVO-L race seats, Sparco 5 point race harnesses, new FIA seat rails and seat reinforcement bars/ struts. To achieve a perfect finish, new door rubbers and window seals, bespoke light weight door panels, rear quilted vinyl seat covers and race mirror were installed. Beside this, there is also a Sparco centralized mechanical extinguisher system with nozzles inside the co*ckpit and the engine compartment. It has a laminated original windscreen and all around lightweight Perspex (LEXAN) windows.

The suspension is built with race Eibach/ Alfaholics springs, Koni/ Bilstein race dampers, 27mm front anti-sway bar, Nylotron bushings, lightened/ drilled rear trailing arms and front spring pans, forged AH shorter steering arms, a lighter aluminium T-bar in the rear, new top GTA suspension arms with poly bushings for castor arms, new race quality wheel bearings and seals. The steering box was fully rebuilt with new premium track rod ends, a new Momo Prototipo steering wheel with a special steering spacer.

The electrical system contains a fully bespoke wiring loom, new fuse box, USB and 12V sockets, transponder wiring, spot/ fog lights separate wiring and an Alfaholics race battery tray-option. The heater and wiper/ wash systems were fully rebuilt.
A bespoke central console with all switches and controls (easy to reach - incl. FIA kill switch and extinguisher pull switch) is fitted. A new SPAL electric fan with optional manual switch, new Facet Fuel pump, refurbished original TI Super dash instruments, plus a new Stack Rev counter and a new set of 4 Stack gauges with a bespoke alu gauges pod (water temp, oil temp, oil pressure, fuel gauge) were also fitted. Front headlights with light plastic bowls and indicator/ side lights are brand new, and so are the taillights lenses and new FIA rain light.

The engine is original to the car (1598cc), was prepared by a specialized shop in Belgium, then dyno tested and set-up on the rolling road producing 146 bhp The cilinder head was modified and gas flowed, new set of Kent race cams were fitted to provide a proper power/ torque balance, pulling strong and constantly from lower revs. Inside the engine are Cosworth race pistons, original rods carefully lightened and balanced, original crankshaft (nitrided and balanced), new high capacity oil pump, new engine strengthening plate, new premium race lightened flywheel with high strength clutch kit, Valve cover crackle finished, new 45DCOE weber carbs with curved trumpets set, Alfaholics new race exhaust manifold/ stainless steel exhaust system. Dyno testing graphs and detailed engine specs are available upon request.

The GTA race gearbox (FIA hom*ologated ratios) was fully rebuild with premium parts (synchro rings, bearings, etc) plus new gearbox mountings. Also a new premium balanced propshaft with race hardy disc and alu cage, and a fully rebuild original differential (ratio 8/ 41) with new Gripper LSD are fitted.

Inside the co*ckpit is a refurbished original pedal box. The brake system has a new master cilinder and a new Bonaldi servo. Furthermore, new brake lines (routed inside the co*ckpit), brake balancing lever front/ rear, race (braided) hoses were fitted
The original Dunlop brake calipers (front and rear) were fully refurbished (new pistons, new seals, etc) and EBC Yellow ( DP4710R) race quality pads were fitted (option for the front are also Pagid RSH29E). Even the handbrake was fully refurbished and new cables were fitted

The car comes with 2 sets of new Premium race quality - TI Super/ TZ- hom*ologated alloy wheels 5. 5x15” - fitted with new tyres : 1 set with Avon Cr6 ZZ (185/ 70/ 15) race tyres and 1 set with Yokohama Neova semi-slicks 195/ 55/ 15.

This Alfa Romeo Giulia is one of the best prepared cars we ever had in our inventory. Everything is new and constructed to the highest possible specification. It's quite clear that building this car was far more expensive then the asking price.
For that reason, I am sure that there are very few historic racing cars for sale with this level of finish, and the lucky person who buys this Alfa Romeo will no doubt realise that this is an absolutely top offer. Viewing and testing is absolutely recommended, but with this warning : it will be very addictive and undoubtedly lead to buying this magnificent car !
