Description

The Alfa Romeo Spider was launched to the public at the Geneva Motorshow in March 1966 and proved to be an instant success due to its “Pininfarina” styling and “round tail” rear end. Produced until the early 1990s, the spider is considered one of Alfa’s greatest successes. The Spider shares many of the Alfa Giulia mechanicals including twin cam inline four-cylinder engine and independent front and solid axle rear suspension. The Spider was one of the first sports cars to incorporate front and rear crumple zones. In 1968 Alfa Romeo introduced the more powerful 1750 Spider Veloce. Powered by a 1,779cc twin cam engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, this gave the Spider a top speed of 118mph from its 116hp engine.

The Alfa Romeo 1750 Veloce Spider offered here at Autostorico is one of only 601 original “RHD” examples, registered on 21st November 1967. Finished in Rosso with Black leather interior trim this stunning example was purchased by its current owner in August 2008. The car was then subject to a major restoration. The owner commissioned work to the mechanicals and body regardless of cost. The engine was totally stripped down and rebuilt using new crankshaft, pistons rings, main bearings and timing chain. Other works include a bare metal respray, replacement suspension, brake overhaul, gearbox rebuild and refurbished steel wheels. Attention was then turned to the interior trim that was re-upholstered and re-carpeted. Remaining in what can only be described as stunning rust-free condition this Veloce Spider not only represents one of the finest examples in Britain but also drives extremely well having covered just over 9400 miles since its restoration.

Offered for sale with a current V5 certificate. Accompanying the car is a history file, which includes various invoices, the previous MOT’s and other related material.
A truly unique opportunity to own such an iconic Italian classic, which will only appreciate further over time.
