1996 Alfa Romeo Spider 2.0 Twin Spark
Accelerate Auto Group
- Black Leather
- 2.0 inline 4 twin spark 150hp
- Rear Wheel Drive
- 54,000 miles
Very rare in the US market! Perhaps less than 10 in the country. VIN: ZAR91600006020029. Zeros were entered in the VIN field due to the fact that it’s foreign.
Here’s your chance to own a very unique and fun to drive convertible that has been imported from the European market by an ‘alfisti’ out of California/San Diego area. All paperwork is available to show legal importation. US Texas title present, registered and ready to go.
Unique and stunning Pininfarina styling. Looks and questions everywhere the car goes! The engine pulls nicely to redline and handles very well- critical timing belt service just completed by local veteran Alfa mechanic. Full new stainless rear section CSC Marmitte exhaust sounds as an Alfa should. Alfaholics high flow cat center section breathes nicely. Factory Recaro leather bucket seats very supportive. Front stress bar increases structural rigidity and turn-in response.
The car does show some wear and tear but certainly not a neglected or ragged out example.
Here a few things to be aware of as a prospective owner:
This car has a solid running engine with nice power band, brakes, handles, and steers nicely as it should. Really a lot of fun to zip around in!
A custom front lip spoiler has been added that is a nice touch- the factory front spoiler is integrated into the bumper and shows some minor wear/damage but not obvious or in need of replacement. A black paint touch up would remedy easily.
The left rear quarter panel shows evidence of being re-painted. Work was good but not excellent. Paint overall has some minor wear appropriate to age but overall presents well.
The power rear antenna is inop and would need replacing. It has simply been covered with a plug that presents fine and radio/cd still operational. Frankly, the exhaust is more fun to listen to than the radio- sounds Italian!!
Ac blows cool but not cold. This is a fair-weather/fun car so has not been a priority to remedy.
New custom Alfa logo floor mats.
Car comes with a custom car cover.
Factory owners manual included.
The left front cv boot is damaged and needs to be removed/cleaned/re-packed with grease/boot replaced. CV joint itself is still good and not currently in need of replacement/not clicking or popping. We will replace the boot prior to delivery if sold at close to asking price. If not, we’ll include the boot for the next owner to install with a qualified mechanic – it’s a straightforward job.
This is an older Alfa so from experience (Alfisti here) minor leaks are the status quo- this one has very slow seepage from what appears to be the main seal. Not bad enough to warrant the time/labor/expense to remedy because so minor. Has not gotten worse in a year or so of driving.
The top canvas and rear window are in very good condition- but the seals above the passenger and driver windows when top is up leak slightly. New top gaskets or perhaps adjusting window up stop points should remedy. Again- this is a fair-weather fun car so this has not been a priority to remedy- have never driven in rain!
Odometer is in KM and speedometer is as well. We will include dash top GPS speedo in mph as a convenience and to minimize speeding tickets- lol
The car will come with official copies of docs covering legal importation from Canada to USA- now Texas titled and legally registered and insured. It will be up to the owner to establish proper and legal steps to inspect/register/title in their respective state- was not a problem for the current owner.
Parts are very prevalent and easy to acquire from a host of resources in the UK at a cost that is more reasonable than a new Honda!
If you are an Alfa fan wanting a striking unique car or love ‘off the beaten path’ cars that are a good value and reasonable to maintain, this is the car for you!
We have tried our best to represent the car accurately but this is indeed an older vehicle so no warranties expressed or implied. Sold AS IS.
Contact us directly for more details, happy to elaborate more. Open to reasonable offers to the right buyer that will continue to maintain/care for properly.
