Engine : 1.570 cc
During its long existence, Alfa Romeo has always offered sports models, ranging from small bombs to modest displacement, six-cylinder roaring like a Ferrari engine half. But not everyone can afford a Ferrari, is it? Thus, the current sports range of Alfa range from the new generation Spider (2.2 to 3.2 liters), the fantastic C8 Competizione supercar, through the sublime Brera, using the same engines as the Spider. The first Spider succeeded the Giulietta and Giulia spider. Delivered with two engines (1600 and 2000 cc), the first of the name was warmly welcomed: its line signed Pininfarina was a model of balance, with its small grille typical of the brand and a sublime profile. The Spider has had a long enough life, since it was produced from 1966 to 1994. Four versions of this little wonder were produced during this period of time: they went from Spider 1 to 4. It is from the series 3 that it undergoes a face-lift, especially at the bumper bulges to satisfy the overseas market, aerodynamic appendages such as the front spoiler and rear spoiler, and a new dashboard more readable. It is then replaced by the Spider front wheel, which the faithful of the brand will hardly accept. It should be known that in 1986, following financial problems (that most brands will know during these damn 70s), Alfa Romeo and Lancia will be taken over by the Fiat group, which will however have the intelligence to leave the elbows free to engineers alfistes, so as not to degrade the image of the brand to the snake.
