Owned by David and his wife since 1990, this Alfa Romeo Spider has been through the full lifecycle with the owners.
Davids wife originally bought the car from a dealer in Richmond, when they were living in London. While there she used it as a daily driver (just what we like to hear), and continued to use it in this way when they moved to Edinburgh.
After this use they left it in a friends barn, or as David says, languishing in a friends barn for five years (not what we like to here poor car). But then Daivd and his wife decided to have the car professionally restored, taking the car back to chassis and building it back up again.
In more recent years, the car has been stored in a Carcoon, as David doesnt spend as much time in Scotland, only coming out for 2 months a year for the last 10 years since the restoration. And so now the time has come for the car to find a new home, as David feels they have really enjoyed it and it deserves a new home now.
Classic red finish to this Alfa Romeo Spider, its the colour you often expect to see them in.
Wheels & Tyres
14 tyres and the classic Pepper-Pot wheels on this car. They present in good condition, a good clean and new centre-cap badges would really set them off. Take a look at the images for the detail.
Shut-lines and panel gaps look great on this car. As David talks about in the Meet The Owner video, the car underwent a restoration back to the chassis and built up again, and so no rust observed on our visit. Watch the video detail for the full review.
Finished in red, we were blessed with some cloud cover on a sunny day to allow us to capture the condition. Even in finish and colour across all the panels, there are a few chips on leading edges of doors etc that you can see in the extensive video review.
Glass and Trim
Glass and trim across the car look good. Things such as the wing mirror chrome etc look lovely, take a look at the video review to see the detail.
Black leather and carpets, with red piping adorn the cabin of this Alfa.
Seats and Carpets
All of the seats and carpets present in very good condition, as can be seen in the media provided. Take a look for a closer look.
The dashboard along with all the dials look great. Very clear and legible, we didnt observe any issues with them, take a look at the pictures in the images section.
Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
Finished with a wooden steering wheel and black plastic gear lever, the trim looks good as can be seen in the video review provided.
David took us on some local roads so that we could see and hear the car in action.
Engine and Gearbox
The 2.0L engine fired up and took us along our short trip. We were on some country roads, and David took us through the gears please watch the video to see the detail.
Suspension and Brakes
On our drive, the car handled as expected, no knocks or rattles that we heard, and the car stopping as it should to too.
Some windy country lanes, with the roof down, a real hoot hearing that twin-cam 2.0L engine doing its thing.
Electrics and Other
David informs us that everything is working as it should do.
