One of the masterpieces of Scaglione. The car was intended to go mass production but that never happened and Giulietta Sprint took its space as more mainstream mass production car.
description
Built in 1954 under the authorization of Orazio Satta Puliga, equipped with an engine derived from the “1900” unit (in-line 4, twin cam), the “Sportiva” is certainly an interesting prototype positioned between the GT’s and the racing cars.
The engine with its “reasonable” power fit in between the 115 hp of the “1900 Super Sprint”, coupé version of the “berlina” and the 158 of the 2-liter racing spider “Disco Volante”, (each models bodied by Touring). The twin-cam engine of the “2000 Sportiva” has an output of 138 hp for a high-performance speed of 220 kmph.
Worthy of note is the De Dion rear axle interpreted in a modern key with triangular transversely-anchored axle-struts of the Watt type. The rear brake drums, beside being mounted inside, has transverse inclined finning for cooling. The whole, in a sense, has been the forerunner of the “Alfetta” berlina by almost twenty years.
The body, superbly designed by Franco Scaglione during his experience at Carrozzeria Bertone, had the broad rear window and the streamlined tail like the beautiful 1954 “Giulietta Sprint”, an icon of 1950s, one of Scaglione’s masterpieces. The styling of the “2000 Sportiva” is based on lightness, aerodynamic and smooth styling, a typical example of the finest Italian post-war design, thoroughbreds mechanics.
