There are many ways to introduce an Alfa Romeo Spider, oblique references to the academy award-winning film, The Graduate with Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft, it’s superb engine, its roots tracing back to 1910 and in continuous production, in one form or another, since then or encompassing a significant element of the worlds motor racing history from the Mille Miglia to modern Touring Cars. Possibly the most famous of all its incarnations however is the Spider, quite simply one of the sexiest cars ever built.
This righthand drive example, the two litre model, has benefitted from continuous attention throughout its current ownership starting with an £8,500 respray in 2010. Regular servicing and MoT tests keep this pretty car running well, so much so, that it has been used regularly and often, including long jaunts across Europe. Presented in sound condition throughout with any corrosion issues attended to, this charming model will certainly turn heads on sale day.
