The Alfa Romeo Spider was manufactured from 1966 to 1993 and is widely regarded as a design classic, remaining in production for almost three decades having only minor aesthetic and mechanical changes. The first three series were assembled by Pininfarina in Grugliasco and the fourth series in San Giorgio Canavese; this was the last rear wheel drive Alfa Romeo. The Spider underwent a major styling revamp in 1983 which saw the introduction of black rubber front and rear bumpers. The front bumper incorporated the grille and a small soft rubber spoiler was added to the boot lid. The final Spider series, arriving in 1990, included Bosch Motronic electronic fuel injection, full-width body-coloured plastic bumper fascias, an electric cooling fan and rear lights across the width of the boot, on-board diagnostics and an optional automatic transmission.
This lovely example is presented in the typical Italian red with tan interior including Alcantara mix seat covering. The car's hood is black and operates manually. Accompanying the car is a current MoT test certificate which is valid until October 2019. This great iconic sports car was built in the USA and exported to Japan in 1993 when new. The present owner imported it from Japan and has provided with the car a Mileage Certificate of Verification. These great sports cars are fun to drive and with the top down, they really come into their own.
