We are delighted to offer this low mileage Series 3 Alfa Romeo Spider that is presented in very good order. The lefthand drive Spider was first registered in Italy in 1986 and imported into the UK by Headley Garages, Grayshott, Surrey whereby it was sold to a Mr Sleep of Pyrford, Surrey and first registered, in the UK, to him on 17th March 1997. The Alfa Romeo was then sold to Sylvia Ann Lyall in July 2001 and then acquired by the current owner in August 2003. The extensive history file contains the original Italian service book and a record of all services and MoT tests carried out since 1997. From 2007, this Alfa Romeo has had very little use and has been stored within the vendor’s dry garage until recently whereby the decision was made to let a new owner enjoy the Spider.
On inspection, this Alfa Romeo displays a remarkably clean coachwork, both on top and on the undersides and has panel gaps to match. The engine compartment is also exceptionally clean whilst the interior, also excellent, has that nearly new Alfa Romeo smell of the period. On a recent test, the Alfa Romeo drove very well and felt tight on the suspension and steering, confirming the low miles, whilst the brakes brought the Spider to a halt in a confident manner. D573 UGO is UK registered and has an MoT test certificate valid until July 2018. With that Italian red coachwork and design flair, this attractive Alfa Romeo is certainly a serious contender in anyone’s book and oozes bags of that 1980’s chic.
