The Alfa Romeo Junior was based on Alfa Romeo’s successful model series 105 and 115 and designed by the world-famous Milan-based design studio, Zagato (founded by Uno Zagato in 1919). This model was commissioned by Alfa Romeo as they were seeking a different alternative to the already popular 105/115 that was in production since 1963.
First released in 1969, the GT 1300 Junior car with a 1.3 litre engine (later, a 1.6 litre engine was also introduced) had a front end that was shaped like a wedge to offer lesser drag coefficient (Cd). To improve aerodynamics, the entire body was kept narrow throughout its length. Technically, the car could sit four, but the rear seats were so narrow because of its shape that the space was more used for storing small luggage.
Over 1000 cars were produced until 1975.
