Introduced in 1966 and also called "Duetto" after a very successful competition had invited the Italians to baptize it, the Alfa Romeo Spider draped the appreciated underpinnings of the previous Giulia and Giulietta spiders with taut and modern lines supervised by Battista Pininfarina and inspired by the Alfa Romeo 6C Superflow IV dream car. 

With its all aluminium DOHC engines, four disc brakes and a responsive five-speed gearbox, the low and light Alfa Spider offers remarkable performance and was immediately appreciated, being produced in four series for almost thirty years.

For the the fourth and last series, presented in 1990, Pininfarina returned to its origins, creating a clean and streamlined design, eliminating the spoilers and aerodynamic appendages from the eighties and introducing new body-coloured bumpers integrated into the bodywork and striking horizontal taillights similar to those of the Alfa 164. 

Two four-cylinder engines were offered, a 1,6 litres with 2 double-barrel Weber carburettors, the last carbureted engine mounted on an Alfa Romeo, and a 2 litres with electronic injection. 

Starting from an already well-kept example of the rare and increasingly coveted last generation Alfa Spider, this Duetto has been professionally repainted in its original Metallic Grey, and the seats have been reupholstered in correct tan leather. 

Many interior and exterior details have been replaced and the mechanics have been carefully serviced.

The car has been equipped with a new soft top and is complemented by its original, rare and valuable hard top.

Once listened to, the sound of the Alfa Romeo twin cam motor with twin carburettors is impossible to forget.

Furthermore, in this car, the absence of the roof makes the experience even more engaging and exciting, making it an almost irresistible temptation for a true Alfista and every car enthusiast.

  • In good overall condition 
  • Reupholstered leather seats  
  • Leather door cards
  • New soft top
  • Original hard top
  • Clear gauges
  • Wood-rimmed four-spokes steering wheel
  • Good carpeting
  • Slightly faded plastics on the center console 

The cabin of this Duetto is characterized by clean and flowing lines that make it particularly pleasant and welcoming.

The seating position is quite low but comfortable and well laid-out.
The gearbox, topped by a nice wood knob, is peculiarly placed quite high in the center console in an almost horizontal position and is extremely easy to reach and rewarding to use.

In this particular car, the good condition of all the surfaces allows us to appreciate even better the harmony of the overall design and the many details that enrich it.

The dashboard is not damaged or faded and the reupholstered seats and the leather door cards are very attractive.

Behind the beautiful four-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel, the large and clean instrument cluster houses two circular Jager main gauges and a vast array of instruments and indicators.

All the brightwork is in very good condition, including the door handles and the window cranks, which have been replaced, and the unscuffed chrome-plated door sill plates.

A new soft top and the rare original hard top finish off the cabin in the best possible way, ensuring a comfortable ride.

The driving experience of this Spider is a mix of old-style charm and modern comfort.
With the enthralling soundtrack produced by the revvy DOHC engine and the induction sound of the twin double-barrel carburettors, every step on the gas pedal is exhilarating and makes us feel at the helm of a true, uncompromised Italian sports car. 

The road holding is excellent, and driving this car on a twisty road can be very rewarding.
At the same time, the well-appointed cabin can be a very nice place to be during a relaxing outing. 


  • Recently restored
  • Repainted in the original Metallic Grey
  • New soft top 
  • Original hard top
  • Original alloy wheels
  • No visible dings or scratches 
  • Undamaged bumpers, headlights, taillights and side markers
  • New headlight bezels
  • New badges and lettering
  • Clean underbody

The last of the original Alfa Spiders brings back much of the original design conceived by Battista Pininfarina and Aldo Brovarone back in the sixties.

The recently restored bodywork shines in its original Metallic Light Grey, revealing surfaces free from any defects and many fascinating styling details such as the Alfa crest integrated into the front bumper, the flush taillights and the sculpted sides, with aerodynamic and stylistic functions.

All lettering and badges are new, and the brightwork is in good condition. The new soft top with transparent rear glass and the shiny original alloy wheels complete a picture of refined simplicity.

The underside is clean with no traces of rust or leaks.

The original hard top is a very valuable addition and superbly complements the lines of the car.


  • 1,6 litres, 109cv inline-four DOHC engine
  • Five speed gearbox
  • Four disc brakes
  • Two twin-barrel carburettors
  • Recently overhauled

The clean and tidy engine compartment features the iconic Alfa Romeo all-aluminium DOHC engine, which remained in production for almost forty years and is considered one of the best engines ever built. 

All the mechanics have been serviced recently.
The braking system has been overhauled with new discs and pads all around and the brake fluid has been replaced.
The engine oil has been changed.

The seller assures that all the mechanics are in good working order and the car is ready to drive.


The historical importance of the Alfa Romeo Spider cannot be underestimated. 
 All series of the Duetto, a mechanical masterpiece and a reference point for its unique and refined style, are highly sought-after by vintage car collectors.

As values of Alfa Spiders of all series keep climbing, the much more usable, comfortable and fast fourth series, with pure lines and very well appointed interiors, represents a purchase of great prestige and sure future appreciation.

This well presented car with interesting specifications is one of the last produced before the model was finally replaced and one of the very last Alfa Romeos equipped with the famed twin-cam twin-carbureted engine and will delight the lucky enthusiast who will decide to make it his own for years to come.

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.


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.
