Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300/1600 Ti/Super
The boxy 105-Series Giulia might not look like the most exciting saloon on the planet, but underneath that plain-Jane exterior beats the heart of a truly sporting saloon. Given the lusty twin-cam engines, five-speed gearbox and well set-up chassis, it’s easy to see why Alfa Romeo was so annoyed by the way its cars were depicted being outrun by the Mini-Coopers in The Italian Job. Despite its rarity today, the Giulia was a massive success when new, with much of that founded on it being so good to drive. Well worth seeking out.
