1989 Alfa Romeo Spider 1.6 1.6


Old spider never surpassed by a new one


Speedometer cable broken, changed.

Clutch pump leaks, changed.

General Comments:

It's a classic red Alfa, daily used from May to September: it's a pleasure to drive it, powerful brakes, high performances due to a powerful engine enhanced by the Weber carburettors, with a robust torque at the lower speed. Good manual gear: not a lightning, but quite fast. The live rear axle cannot beat the soft modern independent rear suspension, but it is the best one among the old cars. Fuel consumption is high only if you push hardly to the gas pedal, otherwise you can get 13 km per liter as average.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
