Model Duetto Spider
A modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple-yet-elegant "Kamm tail" Spider bodywork premiered on the 1970 Spider Veloce would prove enduringly popular, lasting into the 1990s. The Spider's mechanics were essentially those of the Giulia saloon while the engine was the GTV's double-overhead-camshaft four. The original 1750 version was a one-year-only model, with the advent of the Spica-injected 2000 model in 1971.
Wind tunnel testing resulted in the 2000's signature drag-reducing Kamm tail, while other improvements over the earlier Duetto models included bigger brakes and a limited-slip differential. Outstanding speed, acceleration and handling were all characteristics of this class-leading model, which nevertheless possessed a quite remarkable docility, even at high speeds.
Delivered new in October 1968 with the free-revving 1300cc motor, in recent years a more powerful 2.0 motor has been fitted, although the original engine will also be supplied with the car. Recently repainted in white and with a new interior, this rust-free example is said to drive just as well as it looks. A true design icon and a fun summer classic.
