Description

A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple-yet-elegant “Kamm tail” Spider bodywork premiered on the 1970 Spider Veloce would prove enduringly popular, lasting into the 1990s. The Spider’s mechanics were essentially those of the Giulia saloon while the engine was the GTV’s double-overhead-camshaft four. The original 1750 version was a one-year-only model, with the advent of the Spica-injected 2000 model in 1971. Wind tunnel testing resulted in the 2000’s signature drag-reducing Kamm tail, while other improvements over the earlier Duetto models included bigger brakes and a limited-slip differential. Outstanding speed, acceleration and handling were all characteristics of this class-leading model, which nevertheless possessed a quite remarkable docility, even at high speeds.

Described to be in very good all-round condition, this sporty Spider was previously the property of the managing director of Lombarda Sport. Having clearly had a no-expense spared restoration finishing in 2000, it was at this point that the car was uprated to fast road spec.

Since completion, it is quite apparent that this fortunate Alfa was very well maintained and could still be in terms of style and performance, one of the highest specification examples of its breed.
