Description

Slim, the right proportions, beautiful curves, in short: a pleasure to look at. You may think that we are sitting on an Italian terrace with tough friends and enjoying an ice cream while commenting on the passing ladies. Completely wrong.

We’re just sitting in our office with a couple of guys, overlooking the showroom where our newest arrival just has arrived. All our comments come to almost the same conclusion: according to many, this Alfa Romeo Spider 2000 is one of the most beautiful designs of its time. The hand of Carrozzeria Touring is clearly visible, and the first sentence of this story is a nice description of what one sees. This is clearly a car as a chic and sporty Italian convertible should be. A breathtaking design with underlying reliable and appropriate power offering technique.

This 1960 Spider 2000 Touring started its wonderful life in Billancourt France. Around 1980 the car ended up in California USA to make the crossing to the Netherlands in 2016. Part of the restoration had already started in the USA, but that was not done in a way that does justice to the car. That’s why the current owner took the decision to tackle it rigorously and simply start over. And this time to have it done by a real specialist. The men of Geert Jan Peters Classic Automobiles from Kampen http://gjpclassics.nl/ were asked to show all their experience and professionalism. And we can say with good results. Not only a thick map with all documentation, many photos and invoices give a good impression of what has been done, but the car itself says enough for the connoisseur. In every detail you can see that professionals of the brand Alfa Romeo have been at work here.

The beautiful silver-coloured body and the right color blue leather interior is the ultimate combination for almost everyone. The mixture of chic and sporty also applies to the grandiose driving of the car. The power is enough to achieve smooth performance, but it is also possible to tour the car very quietly. To be honest, this four-cylinder drives better than its brother equipped with the heavy six-cylinder engine. You can feel that the car is better balanced due to its lower weight in the front, which improves handling and road holding. A very enjoyable car.

The Spider has recently had its first service after the restoration and is completely ready to enjoy very much. Of course, the car comes with all invoices, Certificato di Origine, valuation report (€160,000) and photos.
