Lot 103 - 1998 Alfa Romeo Spider Series II
|Odometer reading||64,000 miles|
|Result||Sold - £2,912|
Internally known as the Alfa Romeo 916, the Alfa Romeo GTV Spider was designed by Enrico Fumia at Pininfarina, effectively as the replacement for the then 30 year-old Giulia Spider. The Gran Turismo Veloce, or GTV, was planned to re-establish the sporty coupé tradition at Alfa Romeo for the 1990s and, at its launch, many journalists commented that Alfa had improved overall build quality considerably commenting that it came very close to equalling its German rival's impressive credentials when behind the wheel.
This Series II Spider presented in the preferred Alfa Red and optional black leather interior has been well looked after throughout its life with a history file that inspires necessary confidence. Having covered just 64,000 miles and with a hood in very good condition, this example would be perfect to drive home on a balmy June evening. Considering prices for 916 Alfa Romeos are currently on the rise, this could be your last chance to pick up one of these lovely examples before prices increase.
