Alfa Romeo Spider
The Alfa Romeo Spider is a classic roadster that was manufactured by the Italian company Alfa Romeo from 1966 to 1993. It maintained its aesthetic and mechanical elements with just a few minor changes over almost three decades. With its body design created by Pininfarina and innovative crumple zones incorporated into its front and rear, the Alfa Romeo Spider is truly a work of art.
The first model of the Spider released in 1966 had a 1.6L four cylinder twin camshaft engine, producing 109 hp, and came with five-speed transmission, disc brakes, and independent front suspension. On its launch in Italy, it was listed at 2,195,000 lire. It was then given the name “Duetto” after a write-in contest in Italy.
The next year, 1967, the Alfa Romeo Spider was replaced by the 1750 Spider Veloce. The updated model had a 1.8L engine that produced 118 hp as well as newly improved suspension, brakes, electrics, wheels, and tires. This version had an updated rear-view mirror continue the door, a different badging on the tail, and front repeater lights were moved ahead of the wheel arches. It was listed in the U.S. with Spica mechanical fuel injection, and in Europe with two twin carburetors. The 1750 Spider Veloce was sold with the name only, and the “Duetto” was dropped to avoid trademark issues. 190 of the 1994 Commemorative Editions were sold in North America after its mass production ceased.
