The Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider 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 coachbuilders, 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.
This was due to the addition of twin carburettors and an improved compression ratio of 8.5:1. This produced a top speed of 109mph, as opposed to the Berlina's 99mph.
This 2000 Spider example was imported to Greece as new in 1962 and bought by the current owner in 1996 who had it restored back to its original condition, finished in its original grey paintwork with burgundy leather interior and well preserved black hood.
Since then it has always been well looked after and often garaged with the vendor describing the car as being in good to excellent condition. This car comes complete with its FIA and HRRCP papers.
A fine example of Alfa Romeo's stylish and rare sports car.
