Known History

Introduced in 1970 the second series of Alfa Romeo's iconic Spider Veloce was visually distinguished by a subtly revised grille, more raked windscreen, fashionable cut-off 'Kamm Tail' and new door handles. While to the interior it gained improved trim and top-hinged pedals. Designed and built by Pininfarina, the newcomer's two-door monocoque bodyshell incorporated the same sophisticated independent front suspension, five-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel disc brakes as its 'Duetto' predecessor. Initially powered by a 1779cc version of Alfa Romeo's jewel-like four-cylinder 'twin-cam' engine, the second series cars were upgraded to 1962cc during 1971. With a quoted 132bhp and 134lbft on tap, the 2000 Spider Veloce was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 9 seconds and over 120mph. Great fun to drive, the model evolved through third and fourth series remaining in production until 1993.

 

Finished in white with red upholstery, this particular example is said to have been treated to "some past restoration work". Describing the bodywork and paintwork as being in "good" order, the vendor adds that the interior trim "looks new". Riding on steel wheels, it is expected but not guaranteed that this pretty Alfa Romeo Spider will possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale.
