Footnotes

  • A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple-yet-elegant Spider bodywork premiered on the 1966 Duetto would prove enduringly popular, lasting on into the 1990s. The Spider's mechanics were essentially those of the Giulia saloon, comprising independent front suspension, coil-suspended live rear axle and four-wheel servo-assisted disc brakes, while the engine was the Sprint GTV's 1.6-litre, double-overhead-camshaft four. The Duetto was produced for just two years before being superseded by the 1.8-litre '1750' Spider Veloce, the latter lasting until the advent of the 132bhp 2000 model in 1970. Wind tunnel testing resulted in the 2000, and final 1750 models, sporting a drag-reducing Kamm tail, while other improvements included bigger brakes and a limited-slip differential. Outstanding speed, acceleration and handling were all characteristics of this class-leading model, which nevertheless possessed a quite remarkable docility, even at high speeds.

    Finished in silver with grey vinyl interior, this left-hand drive Spider 2.0 was first registered to a Monsieur Phillipe Gutkin in France and kept at his villa on the French Riviera as a holiday car. During his ownership the Alfa covered fewer than 10,000 kilometres. In 2003 the vehicle was purchased by its second owner, an English gentleman, and although registered in the UK was still kept abroad in France and Spain until 2008. It then returned to the UK and was placed in classic car storage due to the owner's health before being acquired as part of a small private collection. The current odometer reading is 16,800kms (approximately 10,400 miles). Described as in generally excellent condition, the car is currently taxed and comes with MoT to February 2014 and Swansea V5. The substantial history file contains the original service book, owner's handbook and sales brochure, British and French registration documents, assorted expired MoT certificates and various invoices detailing recent servicing.
