Lot 177: Alfa Romeo 2000 Spyder
The 2000 Spyder was launched in 1958 using practically the same engine and running gear as the far more ubiquitous Alfa Romeo Berlina Coupe, but with a tuned engine and a spectacular convertible monocoque body designed by the famous coachbuilder, Touring of Milan. The four cylinder engine had the same displacement as the Berlina, but produced 115bhp at 5,700rpm, as opposed to the coupe's 105bhp at 5,300rpm, courtesy of twin carburettors and an improved compression ratio of 8.5:1, allowing a top speed of 109mph against the Berlina's 99mph. Although the car took its styling cues from the Giulietta that had been in production since 1955, its longer wheelbase and 2+2 seating made it made a far more practical car. The louvred side vents and bonnet air intake echo the contemporary Ferrari California Spyder and the BMW 507, giving the car a much more prestigious appearance than the more common Giuliettas. Only 3,443 examples of this car were produced, with many being exported to America, the latter being fitted with chome bumper overiders to meet safety regulations. In 1962 the model was replaced by the 2600 2+2 Spyder, just as the Giulietta was replaced by the Giulia. This 2000 Spider is most attractively finished in light metallic blue with black interior and black hood, and it is described by the vendor as in good and remarkable original condition throughout. It was imported from America only this year and has since benefited from the installment of a new exhaust system. These rare big Alfa Romeo convertibles are becoming increasingly popular, and this is certainly a very nice example. Offered with American registration papers and documentation confirming European taxes have been paid.
Questa 2000 Spider � rifinita nell'attraente azzurro metallizzato con interni e tettuccio neri e ci viene descritta dal venditore in buone condizioni e particolarmente originale. � arrivata quest'anno dagli USA e le � stato montato una nuova marmitta. Queste rare Alfa cabrio imponenti sono sempre pi� in voga e questa � certamente un'occasione molto interessante. Offerta con titolo americano e tasse di importazione pagate.
