1979 Alfa Romeo Spider

THE VERY BEST ALFA ROMEO SPIDER 2000 in the Western Hemisphere - (California car most of its life)

Why settle for an ordinary Alfa Spider?

True Perfection in an ALFA convertible! No expense was spared to achieve authenticity and technical perfection.

***This is a true California Car, modified, restored and loved in San Diego for most of its life. The warm dry climate is ideal for older cars. No road salt, very little rain, and smooth surfaced highways.


NEVER ANY RUST...ZERO! Garaged and covered with high quality cover since new! Professionally maintained at all times.

202bhp on premium pump octane

Zero accidents

Completed only 4000 miles ago: High performance suspension, 202 hp engine, new transmission, restored all working components, all bushings plus a long list of performance upgrades. Only 76,000 miles on chassis.

Only 4000 miles on engine, transmission, top, interior, exhaust and the entire suspension!

At 202 horsepower and approximately 2000 lbs (due to light weight upgraded components) this low center of gravity rocket is pure sex with its exhaust note imitating a Ferrari from the 1960s! This car is a true head turner!

Authenticity, performance and perfection were paramount in the 2 year effort to upgrade this car. Parts came from Alfaholics (UK, Alfa Classic (UK) and Paul Spruell Motorsports (Atlanta, GA USA- former USA National Champion road racer in a Alfa Spider 2000).

(Over 53,000 dollars invested in this rare Spider!)
