1976 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce

Highlights

  • Specialist restoration over the last 8 years
  • Comprehensive history over the last 25 years
  • Engine rebuild in 2006 and refurbishment of the suspension and brakes in 2021 and 2024
  • Colour change from Champagne Metallic to Rosso Red in 2001

The Appeal


If you think of a compendium of Italian pedigree, and jam it into one car, it's likely the Spider won't be too far off of the result. Stunning, disciplined yet seductive lines matched with a laudable Nord Twin-Cam make these roadsters an immensely rewarding purchase decades later.

This sharply-appointed example, with its vibrant Rosso Red exterior, has been well maintained and restored over the years, with a comprehensive restoration programme carried out over the last 8 years. The car's engine was rebuilt in 2006, and the suspension and brakes were refurbished in 2021 and 2024 respectively.

The result is a simply superb example of a highly desirable car.

The safest way to buy a classic car online

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
