"Hello Jesmond, It's been 2 weeks since the Alfa Sprint arrived, and we have covered around 750 km in that time. We are both loving driving the car, and are so glad that we managed to find such an amazingly original example of this classic model. The Alfa is absolutely correct to your description, and we would like to sincerely thank you for carrying out the sale process in such an efficient and correct manner; everything you promised was done, and it was delivered ahead of time, so that we could display it at the major Blenheim Classic Car day as we had hoped. We would certainly recommend you, and Waimak Classic Cars as excellent to deal with."Ash & Sandra, Motueka, New Zealand
The Alfa Spider offers a healthy dose of Latin charisma and some of the best engines you'll come across anywhere...these Spiders are never anything less than a blast.
Naturally, you'll have to make some sacrifices if you want to enjoy open top motoring and the Spider will require you to travel light. It's a car that adheres to the grand old traditions of a small weekend bag, your nearest and dearest and the open road.
It's a romantic ideal in a country like ours and from launch, the Spider was a steady seller for Alfa Romeo.
The Spider borrows its heritage form the old-shape Spider, which achieved celebrity status courtesy of Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate. That said, the Spider would probably have been a success even if Anne Bancroft had twitched her curtain to see Dustin rolling up in a Morris Oxford.
In certain respects the heritage goes back further than the 'Duetto' to the Giulietta Spider of 1955-1962 which, like this 1996 car, was also designed by Pininfarina.

The styling is unmistakably Alfa Romeo, from that trademark triangular grille, through those distinctive twin circular headlamps to the classic curves of the pretty rear. That the Spider feels like an expensive car is thanks to careful touches.
This car has not been thrashed and has no known electrical problems and interior creaks and rattles.
On the road, sixty is just over eight seconds away en route to 130mph in the Twin Spark. If there's a better-sounding engine than this, it's difficult to think of it offhand.
The Spider may not boast contemporary niceties like a folding hard top or stability control electronics, but once you've fired the engine up and blasted the Alfa down the road, you may not care. Track down a well looked after example like this one and you'll have a car that only grows better with age.
Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
