    The combination of a high-performance engine with an elegant minimalist body ensured the Alpha Romeo Giulietta became an instant success as a sports car. Alpha’s lineup included sedans and spiders and boosted Italy’s post-war recovery in the 1950s. The high-performance ‘Veloce’ (meaning ‘fast’ in Italian) was added in 1956 and featured a 1.3ℓ DOHC engine with high compression ratio and replaced the Solex 35φ single with Weber 40φ dual carburetor to increase maximum output by 25ps to 90ps. While exterior changes appear limited to the addition of the Veloce emblem on the front fender, weight was comprehensively reduced with aluminum front hood, door panels and bumpers, and the side windows changed to the sliding type (early model only). As a result, maximum speed reached 180km/h so the Veloce punched above its weight against performance cars in the class above. The trend towards lighter weight and higher power continued with the release of the ‘SZ’ by Zagato. This sporty early model with reduced weight, floor shift and three-spoke steering wheel is the basis for this miniature model replica.
