Once in a while, an interesting motor car becomes available to the market. This Alfa Romeo 1600 S4 Spider is one such motor car. First registered in Italy in 1992, this S4 Spider arrived onto the UK shores in early 2016. What makes this Alfa Romeo interesting is not only its excellent coachwork and interior trim but also that it is fitted with a BRC Europa 2, dual fuel LPG conversion, fitted in 2014, making this a most economical open top sports car. The bright yellow coachwork is complimented by a set of attractive after-market alloy wheels that feature Alfa Romeo badged centres; the original steel wheels and covers being included in the sale. The soft top folds down and erects quickly and easily when required. Whilst touring with the hood down, the hood is stowed under a well fitting hood bag that enhances the overall look of the car. On a recent test, this Alfa Romeo started easily and drove well, either on the un-leaded fuel or on the LPG option. The gearbox selected the ratios smoothly without any baulking that can inflict the marque. Twin carburettors supply the fuel to the 1600cc power unit whilst disc brakes all around ensure good and confident braking. The engine bay is clean and tidy with evidence that both the clutch and brake master cylinders have been replaced. The bodywork is excellent on top and upon the undersides also; the seats, with their Alcantara centres, are also in very good order, perhaps an indication that this Italian sports car has been well looked after. A small history file accompanies this Alfa Romeo and includes a copy of the original Italian log book, which indicates only two Italian owners, a UK V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 16th May 2017 with no advisories. The Alfa Romeo Spider S4 Spider is considered, by many Alfisti, as the best of the 105 Series Giulia Spiders and with its condition and economy, we feel it is offered with a most attractive and tempting estimate.
