Alfa Romeo’s Spider was unique in its prime because it was way ahead of its time. Whilst most competitors were throwbacks from past-war designs, the sophisticated Alfa came with overhead (twin) cams, proper dual twin choke Weber carburettors, glass windows, disc brakes, five-speed transmission, and a twin cam all-alloy engine; a spec that today would impress let alone half a century ago. Best of all, today these cultured Alfas are, at best, only slightly more expensive than a compatible MGB or TR. Because the car stayed in production for three decades, only bowing out in the early 1990s, the last ones are successfully modernised yet still retain that essential character plus are great value against the originals, as well.
