Alfa Romeo Gi­u­lia SS K500’s Si­mon Kid­ston says, ‘Other-worldly Ber­tone styling, but the quirky coupé was one of Alfa’s last semi-be­spoke cre­ations. A gen­uine rar­ity, with the 1600’s 125mph ca­pa­bil­ity. SS sales were di­vided be­tween early Gi­uli­etta 1300s and later Gi­u­lia 1600s. The looks stood the test of time – pro­duc­tion ran from 1959 to 1966. De­spite its fu­tur­is­tic allure, in the auc­tion room the SS has its feet firmly planted on planet earth. Af­ter the ex-briggs Cun­ning­ham car rock­eted to $209k in 2011, sales have been solid, if not spec­tac­u­lar. For now the space­ship has landed.’
