The 2000 Spider Veloce

A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple-yet-elegant "Kamm tail" Spider bodywork premiered on the 1970 Spider Veloce would prove enduringly popular, lasting into the 1990s. The Spider's mechanics were essentially those of the Giulia saloon while the engine was the GTV's double-overhead-camshaft four. The original 1750 version was a one-year-only model, with the advent of the Spica-injected 2000 model in 1971. Wind tunnel testing resulted in the 2000's signature drag-reducing Kamm tail, while other improvements over the earlier Duetto models 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.


The Offered Motorcar

This Giallo Pagaoda 2000 was sold by Chris Nikel's Autohaus in Tulsa, Oklahoma to its first and only private owner on September 13th, 1973. Meticulously maintained since new, it has spent its life in the car-friendly climates of Oklahoma and central Texas. Showing just over 18,000 miles from new, the Alfa is very original save for a single repaint done in the original color. Well kept and documented, the books, tools, original keys, owner's card, and radio are all still with the car. In the last eight months, over $7,000 has been spent on mechanical refurbishment.

With devoted care from its single private owner for 40 years, long history of careful maintenance, and wonderfully preserved condition, there is little more one could want from this sleek Italian droptop.
