The Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale is a Racing Statement
In 1950, Mexico completed its stretch of the Pan-American Highway. To
celebrate, the government organized La Carrera Panamericana, a race running
south to north along the new stretch of road–and a race which quickly
established itself as the most dangerous race of any kind in the world. For
five years, drivers like Juan Manuel Fangio, Bobby Unser, and Felice
Bonetto competed in the race until it was shut down due to safety concerns
following the disastrous crash at Le Mans in 1955.
Revived in 1988, today’s Carrera Panamericana is still dangerous, fast,
grueling, and addictive, as driver Conrad Stevenson can attest. Stevenson
got his first taste of the race in a friend’s Studebaker in 2001. After a
couple more years of participating in friends’ cars, Stevenson decided it
was time to build a car of his own, in this case a 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia
The Giulia SS, which Stevenson describes as a “patchwork quilt” of his
own metalwork, was never intended to be a concours queen. It is, as he
points out, a purpose-built race car, built to go fast and hard, over speed
bumps at eighty miles per hours and across 2,200 miles of Mexican
countryside. Still, it is a beauty to behold.
“I’ve taken liberties with this style,” says Stevenson, who modeled
his nose for his car after the earlier, lower SS noses that were known to
provide better downforce. “I’m not presenting this car to Pebble Beach,
it’s not an authentic ’65 car. But it is true, I believe, to what the
designer, Bertone, intended.”
Whatever he did, it worked. Not only did he finish the race (a feat in
itself), his Alfa took 21st place overall and first in the Historica A Plus
class in 2013. Perhaps more importantly, the car enabled Stevenson to sate
his Carrera addiction for one more year.
