‘A true sports car of impeccable manners and considerable performance.’ – Motor Sport on the Alfa Romeo Duetto, 1967.

A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple yet elegant spider bodywork premiered on the 1966 Duetto would prove enduringly popular after a rather critical initial reception, lasting well into the 1990s. Under the skin, the Duetto’s mechanicals were essentially those of the 105-Series Giulia saloon, with independent front suspension, coil-suspended live rear axle and four-wheel disc brakes. The power unit was the 1.6-litre, 109bhp version of Alfa’s classic double-overhead-camshaft four as installed in the Giulia Sprint GTV. Performance fully matched the Duetto’s stunning looks, with 100km/h reachable in around 11 seconds and a top speed of 185km/h. The model achieved worldwide public recognition after starring alongside Dustin Hoffman in the film, The Graduate, but was produced for only two years before being superseded by the ‘1750’ Spider Veloce in 1967.

This early example of Alfa Romeo’s classic Duetto spider has been in the current owner’s possession since May 2005. Finished in red with black interior, the latter completely renewed, the car is described as in generally very good condition, the engine running well, and is offered with German registration papers and TüV.
