Vehicle Description

The third generation of the ever-popular Alfa Romeo Spider has been nicknamed “aerodinamica”, it was built in this shape from 1982 till 1990. The black rubber spoilers at the front and rear of the car were very much a 1980s thing and gave the Spider after 16 years on the market a new lease of life, significally altering its appearance. Not everybody approved of the revamp, many even bought aftermarket body kits to have their Spiders look like the previous generation. What is on sale here is an original, untinkered 3rd generation Spider, with all its zeitgeisty 1980s features in place. The dark grey metallic paintwork suits the car very well, it is devoid of noteworthy scratches. The beige leather interior with its prominent and very fine wooden steering wheel likewise presents itself in a good condition regarding its age. Even the carpet – a Spider “problem area” – looks good on this specimen. A small crack in the dashboard needs to be mentioned, and the driver’s seat displays traces of use. The black convertible top looks good, as do the 14 ” Campagnolo rims. A typical 1980s cassette radio is on board as well.
This Spider has the 2.0 litre Twin Cam 4-cylinder engine installed, which produces 93 kW (127 hp) of power. The vehicle was delivered to Germany when new, it comes with German registration documents including historic plates and valid technical approval until 07/2017.
A recent Classic Data brief appraisal values this condition 3+ car at € 12,700.


A young Dustin Hoffman driving hundreds of miles – to the musical accompaniment of a Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack – in a red convertible: If you’re among the millions of people who watched the 1967 motion picture “The Graduate”, you’re likely to remember the scene. It was an early case of successful product placement and the car in question an Alfa Romeo Spider “Duetto”, which had come out the year before. And was there to stay: With only minor changes, the roadster remained in production for nearly three decades, making it one of the best-known convertibles of all times. The Alfa Romeo Spider of the 1st generation (1966-1969) featured an elongated round tail section. For the series 2 (1969-1982) this was effectively cut off, giving the “fastback” Spider its typical appearance. The Series 3 (1982-1990) can be distinguished by their rather voluminous front and rear bumpers, which gave these cars their nickname, “rubber lip”. The final 4th generation (1990-1993) did away with the under-bumper and trunk-lid spoilers in favour of a more classical appearance. 124,104 Spiders are said to have been built altogether. In Germany, the Spider tops the list of classic cars in the “imports” category.
