1989 Alfa Romeo Spider 2000 QV - RHD, Red Low Miles SOLD

MORE PICTURES HERE: - details above

This is a very special opportunity to purchase a real survivor car! This 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider Quadrifoglio has been in long-term family ownership since 1994 and has been cherished throughout! The car was owned by the family who run a major confectionery company, and it has had a very easy life. Being a Quadrifoglio, this was a top-spec car when new.

The car is a very rare RHD conversion when new – I’m pretty sure this was carried out by Bell & Colvill on behalf of Alfa Romeo, and has been done to a very high standard. Very few RHD S3 cars remain today, and I think you’d struggle to find a better car for this money. The car has covered just 60, 000 miles from new (100, 000km) and I have history showing exactly what work has been done whilst in the hands of the long-term owners. The car has MOT until April 2020 and you will see that the MOT history is incredibly clean.

The bodywork is in very good all round condition, with an excellent shine to the paintwork and no real unsightly areas. As the car has not had any paintwork for 25+ years, there is the odd very minor mark here and there, but nothing that a good machine polish wouldn’t take out. It’s great to see a car that HASN’T had a full recent respray – it means you can see exactly what’s there, and nothing’s being hidden. The alloy wheels are in very good order, including the spare. The engine bay is very clean and tidy indeed, the inner wings are in excellent order and everything is nice and fresh, and could be very easily detailed. I have left things ‘as is’ so you don’t think the car has been tarted up before being listed for sale!

The car has had very little use in the wet, and the underside is solid as a rock – with no evidence of ever having any welding repairs. I think you’ll be impressed when you come to view! Sills, floors, boot floor etc etc all look very solid indeed and it’s nice to see that it hasn’t been covered in underseal – again, you can see exactly what’s what.

The interior is in excellent order, with original carpets, door cards etc – all in very good, original condition – just as you’d expect. There is a VERY small tear on the driver’s seat base – it would be a quick and simple repair but I don’t personally think it needs doing for now. The leather is very soft and supple, the carpets free from any major stains, and the dashboard and centre console are in very good order. The hood is the original and appears to be fully watertight.

The car starts well from cold, and runs nicely. The oil and coolant are very clean. A new exhaust silencer has been fitted in recent times, along with regular servicing. The car pulls well, and stops nicely too. Of course, it’s not like a modern car – it’s effectively an updated 1960s car, so no power steering, air con etc etc! Just a nice set of Twin Webers, and a fantastic soundtrack!

All in all – it’s a very straight little car, and I do think you would struggle to find a better one for this sort of money. Just have a look what other ones are being sold for! The car has covered very little mileage over recent years but has been kept well serviced etc – but some gradually increasing regular use would probably do the car a world of good. No, it is not a concourse car but it’s an incredibly honest and original example which could be improved on easily.
