1998 Alfa Romeo Spider Twin Spark 50,620 (Not Warranted) £3,500 + buyers premium


Description from The Vendor;

You will see that the vehicle is in almost pristine condition: very clean and only a tiny amount of stone chip damage. The car has always been garaged, dry use only. The soft top (normally a problem) is in very good condition.

An inspection of past MOTs will reveal that the mileage is believed to be genuine and very low for a car of this age.

There has been a recent service and MOT (no problems) and the fuel system has received a recent overhaul. The battery is new and the four tyres are virtually unused. I believe this is a rare example of a very desirable car.

It handles like a dream displaying its race bred pedigree. It is at its most rewarding if you drive it like an Italian on his way to a hot date when (like its owner) it is full of enthusiasm.

It has only one problem to my knowledge. After a few weeks of not being used the battery will go flat. I am advised by the garage that this is nothing to worry about and is pretty standard for a car of this age. Their advice – use it more!


Auctioneer’s notes:

This is a very good looking car and has that typical Italian flair.  The last registered keeper had her for 4 years, I believe in total she had 6 owners from new.  For the technically minded, the engine produces 150 bhp giving a very healthy acceleration – 0260 in 8.4 seconds – and the top speed is 131 mph  You have 4 stamps in the service book, good number of invoices from March ’16 – April ’22 and she comes with a Gov. MOT history.  This car may be viewed, strictly by appointment.
