The Alfa Romeo Graduate, named in honor of the movie 'The Graduate' where an Alfa Romeo had a starring role, has become an iconic Italian sports car. The Alfa Romeo Spider (105/115 series) was a convertible roadster model produced by the Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo from 1966 to 1993. The Spider nameplate originates from the English word 'Speeder', a two-person open horse-carriage. Widely regarded as a design classic, it remained in production for almost three decades with only minor aesthetic and mechanical changes. The three first series were assembled by Pininfarina in Grugliasco and the fourth series in San Giorgio Canavese. The last Spider was produced in April 1993, it was also the last rear wheel drive Alfa Romeo produced before Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione was introduced.
The series 3 spider came with a 2 liter DOHC engine with electronic Bosch fuel injection or twin Webber carburators as an option in Europe. Thanks to variable camshaft timing the engine is still lively, especially since the car weighs little over 2500 lbs. (1000 killos). On both country roads as well as highways, power is more than enough to drive fast. The gearbox has long throws but is very percise, remember your input goes directly to your gearbox and not some elastic band linkage found in "modern" cars. 0-100kmh (0-60mph) is approximately 9 seconds and top speed (top closed) is a real 200kmh (120 mph).
This obviously exceptionally well maintained and serviced example drives exactly like it should and you will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this increasingly desirable and collectible garage kept and rust and accident free Alfa Romeo Spider with only 23K original miles in this very striking color combination anywhere else!
