The Spider first broke cover at the 1961 Turin Motorshow, but a combination of Italy's economic problems and Alfa's ongoing success with its existing models meant production was delayed until 1966, and the official launch took place at the Geneva Salon of that year. The Series 2 Spider arrived in 1970. The rounded tail was replaced with a distinctive 'Kamm' design and a year later engine capacity was increased to 1962 cc, prompting the name to be changed to 2000 Spider Veloce. With 131bhp on tap, this was the quickest Spider yet and capable of over 120mph. From 1975 the interior was modified to include a pair of occasional rear seats. The very pretty left-hand drive Spider being sold is a 1976 example finished in Red with black leather upholstery. It was first UK registered in March 2000 and has been off the road between 2005-2015 and treated to a sundry restoration / refurbishment. This included a new hood, new carpets, new steering rack and electric fuel pump. The vendor informs us the Alfa is in generally 'Good' condition with 'healthy' oil pressure and the twin Dellorto carburettors have recently been overhauled and balanced. 'UBV895P' is offered with an MOT certificate into January 2018.
