1966 Alfa Romeo Giulia Super 'Polizia'

To be auctioned on Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Sold for €28.000

  • Chassis no. AR 337918


110 hp, 1,570 cc twin overhead-camshaft four-cylinder engine, five-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension, solid axle rear suspension with trailing lower radius arms, coil springs, and anti-roll bar, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,500 mm

  • Unique restoration to Italian police specifications
  • Used in numerous Italian films
  • Correct police accessories, including lights, sirens, and radio


As one of the first true “sports saloons” ever made, Alfa Romeo's Giulia four-door almost seemed pre-destined to become an ideal police car in its home country.



Naturally, the Italian polizia selected these high-spec models for patrol duty. The Polizia Giulia Super was swathed in what has become an iconic drab green paint scheme over saddle vinyl, and it was a ubiquitous sight in Italy in the 1960s and 1970s. Given the way they were used, it is hardly surprising that few remain today.



Offered here is a rare restored Giulia Super that has been recreated in remarkably authentic polizia livery. It has been restored to the proper polizia specifications and shows terrific attention to detail. Included with it are items like a vintage police radio, a siren ready to belt out its distinctive wail, and a single blue light that has been mounted to the centre of its roof.



So correct is this particular Giulia Super that it has been used in numerous Italian films, including Marco Tullio Giordana’s 2012 Story of a Massacre, which chronicles the investigation surrounding the 1969 Piazza Fontana bombing in Milan.



This Giulia Super is a true piece of Italian history, and it is ready to be the showpiece of an eclectic collection or to be put back to work as a movie star.






Moteur quatre-cylindres, 1 570 cm3, 110 ch, deux ACT, boîte manuelle cinq rapports, suspension avant indépendante, essieu arrière rigide avec tirants longitudinaux, ressorts hélicoïdaux et barre antiroulis, freins à disques sur les quatre roues. Empattement: 2 500 mm.



  • Restauration unique aux spécifications de la police italienne
  • Utilisée dans de nombreux films italiens
  • Accessoires de police corrects, dont les feux, sirène et radio




Étant une des premières vraies berlines sportives jamais produites, l'Alfa Romeo Giulia semblait presque prédestinée à devenir dans son pays natal la voiture préférée des forces de police.



Tout naturellement, la polizia italienne n'a pas tardé à sélectionner cette voiture rapide pour ses missions routières. Vision familière sur les routes d'Italie dans les années 1960 et 1970, la Giulia Super Polizia était peinte de la fameuse teinte verte un peu terne, avec intérieur en vinyle marron. Compte tenu de l'usage intensif auquel elle était soumise, il n'est guère surprenant que les survivantes soient rares aujourd'hui.



Nous proposons ici une rare Giulia Super qui a été superbement recréée dans son authentique livrée polizia. Elle a été restaurée aux spécifications polizia correctes, avec une remarquable attention portée aux détails. Ainsi, elle est équipée d'une radio de police d'époque, d'une sirène prête à émettre sa sonorité spécifique et d'un gyrophare bleu monté au sommet du toit.



La réalisation est exemplaire, au point que cette voiture a été utilisée dans de nombreux films italiens, dont Piazza Fontana, réalisé en 2012 par Marco Tullio Giordana et qui évoque l'enquête ayant suivi l'attentat de la Piazza Fontana, en 1969 à Milan.



Véritable représentante de l'histoire automobile italienne, cette Giulia Super est prête à constituer une des pièces maîtresses d'une collection éclectique ou à être utilisée à nouveau comme star de cinéma.
