Description

A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple-yet-elegant Spider bodywork premiered on the 1966 Alfa Romeo Duetto would prove enduringly popular, lasting on into the 1990s. The Spider’s mechanicals were essentially those of the Giulia saloon, comprising independent front suspension, coil-suspended live rear axle and four-wheel servo-assisted disc brakes while the engine was the Sprint GTV’s 1.6-liter, double-overhead-camshaft four. The Duetto was produced for just two years before being superseded by the 1.8-liter ‘1750’ Spider Veloce, the latter lasting until the advent of the 132bhp 2000 model in 1970. Wind tunnel testing resulted in the 2000 and final 1750 models sporting a drag-reducing Kamm tail while other improvements 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.

This  Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto, presented in black with a beige hood and interior is in good condition. It comes with its original owner’s  manual and Italian paperwork. These iconic cars made famous in the film The Graduate, are extremely popular and great fun to drive, with the typical Alfa Romeo road handling make it exciting on country roads.
