Total Fun — It’s a blast to drive, and a real head turner. This car has true Italian sex appeal at without owning a Ferrari. I never had a problem since I bought it new in 1985. It has a nice size trunk, and plenty of head room.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Alfa Spider Veloce Review — Cheap fun convertable. Great fuel mileage. I drove to the N.C. coast and got 34 mpg. Like them so much I know have three. Great riding car that is very sporty and nothing else looks or compares to it. I would drive this car anywere. One thing that is a disadvantage is that some of the drivers of larger vans and trucks do not see you and will try merging over into your lane. They do have good horns to get them back out of your lane.

Its Everything You Would Expect From A 20+ Year Old Car. — Like all old cars, this one has its fair share of problems. The brakes are old but function just fine. There are some dents but only the sixe of a pea. There is a tiny dot of rust on one of the head lights. The interior is great, same with the soft cover top.

All Time Classic By Seven

Very nice shape and the last real spider with rear wheel drive. Engine is weak and handling and braking is more like a boat than a car but it's an abolute cutie! Read More

I Love This Car By Stephanie

unique and fun to drive. Does not move on snow or ice. This is not a safe car, it's a fun car. I feel safe and in control because I enjoy shifting and manuevering. Not a family car, a little roadster Read More
