Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto Veloce Duetto 1969

General description : At the motor show in Geneva in 1966, Alfa Romeo introduced its first Spider, the Spider 1600. Before long, the name of the car had been baptised “Duetto”. A year later Alfa Romeo presented the first update – more horsepower – in Brussels: the Spider 1750 Veloce. The car we now have for sale was produced in 1969. After two years, the car passed into the hands of a new – female – owner. This lady had the car in her possession until 2003. In the 1990s, the car got restored by her son, Chris Mayring, the well-known Porsche restorer. Judging from the invoices that have been preserved and come with the car, the restoration was started in 1995 and completed in 1997. At that moment, the milage was 78,082 miles. The restoration was carried out to perfection and, judging from the large number of invoices, no part was missed. Actually, the car is really still as new. In 2003, by which time the mileometer read 82,357 miles, an American pilot, who was also a collector, bought the car. Treating his car with the utmost care, he has kept it in top condition over the last 13 years. We realise very well that this car is not a bargain. But we would go so far as to say that more beautiful examples or better drivers will be extremely hard to find.

Op de autosalon in Genève in 1966 introduceerde Alfa Romeo de eerste Spider, de 1600 Spider. De naam van de auto werd al gauw tot “Duetto” gedoopt. Een jaar later presenteerde Alfa Romeo in Brussel een eerste update met de 1750 Spider Veloce die vooral meer pk’s had. De auto die wij u aanbieden zag het levenslicht in 1969 en wisselde twee jaar later van eigenaar. De nieuwe eigenaar, een dame, heeft de auto tot 2003 in haar bezit gehad. De zoon van deze dame, Chris Mayring een bekend Porsche restaurateur heeft de auto van zijn moeder in de jaren ’90 gerestaureerd. Afgaande op de rekeningen die bij de auto zijn, werd de restauratie gestart in 1995 en afgerond in 1997.De tellerstand was toen 78.082 mls. De kwaliteit van de restauratie is van het hoogste niveau geweest en getuige de hoeveelheid aan rekeningen werd geen onderdeel overgeslagen. De auto verkeert zelfs nu nog eigenlijk in nieuwstaat. In 2003 werd de auto gekocht met een tellerstand van 82.357 mls. door een Amerikaanse piloot die tevens verzamelaar was. Deze nam zijn bezit zeer serieus en hield de auto de afgelopen 13 jaar in topconditie. Deze auto is geen koopje, wij realiseren ons dat. Maar wij durven te beweren dat er weinig mooiere of beter rijdende exemplaren te vinden zijn.

About Alfa Romeo
Alfa Romeo was initially founded in 1907 in Naples to prepare a French origin Darracq-cars for sale in Italy.

The company did not fare particularly well, so the Italians investors took over the company, which was given the new name of the ALFA (Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili) . Nicola Romeo took over the company in 1918 turning it into ALFA ROMEO.

In 1933 Alfa Romeo was rescued again this time by the government, turning Alfa Romeo into an instrument of Mussolini's Italy, a national emblem that produced luxorious cars for the rich.

However, pre WWII Alfa Romeo is best remembered by its classic Grand Prix cars;
The Vittorio jano designed Alfa Romeo P2 that won the inaugural Automobile World Championship in 1925, the sensational P3 which won its first race driven by Tazio Nuvolari at the Italian Grand Prix, 5 more Grands Prix that year by Nuvolari and Rudolf Caracciola,

As well as, those racing sports cars; the 6C 1750, that Tazio Nuvolari won the Mille Miglia in, the 8C 2300 that won the Le Mans 24 Hours from 1931 to 1934, and finally 8C 2900.
Alfa Corse closed for 1933 and eventually transferred them to Enzo Ferrari's now privatised 'factory' team Scuderia Ferrari

Post war Alfa Romeo might be best remembered by the all alloy Alfa Romeo Twin Cam Hemi engine produced from 1954 to 1994 or those 60's Italian films that all seem to present that quintesential Alfa Giulietta driven by The Carabinieri.

Today any classic Alfa Romeo make a great addition to an Italian car enthusiast's portfolio.
