Night Drive

  • Bosch Motronic Fuel Injection - improved vs. Spica (up to '82) & Bosch L Jetronic (up to '89). Higher compression, better power delivery, improved engine management, onboard diagnostic system & electric dual fan aluminum radiator (no stolen cavallinos & improved cooling vs. pre-'90 models).
  • A bit more "pop" from the twin cam than earlier Spiders More sporting than your typical Alfa Spider, with a more linear power band and a stronger torque curve. The reduced weight and responsive Bosch Motronic fuel injected engine create a potent combination. Produced for the U.S. '90 model year before the switch to the full S4 model and prior to the excesses piled upon the S4.
  • The last of the line of the pure Alfa Romeo Spider. Last year for the Graduate model & classic Series 3 body, only year for the classic S3 body & S4 engine combination. Last model to retain all the classic manual operated features.

Additional Items

  • Service history, owner’s & service manuals, Alfa Atlas, tools & original window sticker!
  • Two (2) sets of original keys, including original Alfa Romeo dealer key chain
  • New touch up paint bottle & Alfa Romeo license plate cover (great for car shows)
  • Sporting the original dealer stickeron tail
  • Original unused Pirelli spare
  • Vintage stainless steel Alfa hubcaps on original wheels (shown)
  • Stainless steel trim rings (not shown)
  • Rare original sport wheel covers with- custom painted logos thattransforms the car in minutes
  • While I am confident this is one of the better Spiders you’ll come across, it's not perfect. A recent paint correction addressed paint flaws, rock chips & scratches. A few tiny dings would be short work for a pdr specialist. The top shows like new despite several repairs. The driver’s seat has a couple repairable seam breaks and small tears.It has won awards and garnered tons of attention at shows despite the flaws. A great alternative if you desire a more robust driving experience than your average Alfa Spider, Porsche 356, early 911, 912, 914, BMW 2002, MGA, MGB, Miata, Austin Healy 100 | 3000, Triumph TR3, TR4, TR6, Spitfire and many other classic sports cars. Be the envy of big dollar Duetto Spider owner's as you roar past them! An opportunity to obtain a very unique Spider well below total investment!
