|Estimate||£9,000 - £12,000|
|Result||Sold - £12,208|
Once in a while, a special example of the Alfa Romeo marque becomes available, and this Alfa Romeo S4 Spider is one of those motor cars. It was first registered on 3rd October 1990 to Mr. Geoffrey Russell who cherished the Spider until the car was purchased as a birthday present for the current owner in July 2015. Mr. Russell always garaged and used the Alfa Romeo as his second car. Every MOT test certificate is present confirming that the 59880 kms, equating to 37,208 miles, is genuine. Also present is the original book pack with all manuals, service coupon book etc. together with the most comprehensive date ordered service history file with every itemised invoice starting with the car's running in service on 13th November 1990 at 1385 kms. This Spider has been serviced every year regardless of mileage up to and including 2012 when she was laid up for three years, all backed up by the mileage on the MOT's and invoices. A new hood was fitted in 2002, due to it being slashed while parked at a village fete. This is still as new with no discolouration or fogging to the window and no sign of wear or tearing to the hood material. In 2012, £634.69 was invested in, among other things, a rear brake rebuild that included two new callipers, both discs and brake pads; this was at 58,517kms. The current owner has continued the loving care that Mr Russell started in 1990 and, within the past year, a major service has been carried out along with four new tyres, a new battery and a new set of floor mats.
This Alfa Romeo is excellent in all respects and comes complete with the originally supplied factory hardtop, the original equipment radio, CD stacker, jack and tool kit. No major work has ever been required due to careful and constant ongoing maintenance. She has been waxed protected on the underside which has done its job as there is no sign of any corrosion. The Spider is only being offered due to a forthcoming baby; so all is needed is a lucky new owner to enjoy this year's spring and summer. Exceptional value given the estimate.
