1997 Alfa Romeo 916 Spyder

Designed in the late 1980s by Enrico Fumia at Pininfarina, the 916 Spider had a tough act to follow. It addressed the challenge with a dramatic side-slash and huge front clamshell cleverly shrouding the headlights, while a hard cover for the folded soft-top gave it an exceptionally clean wedge profile. Rust worries were largely put to rest by galvanizing the entire bodyshell, which no doubt contributed to making the car excessively heavy and therefore not particularly accelerative in its class. But it\'s a small price to pay to avoid the rampant rot of most older Alfas.

For consignment, a true import car in that it came over from a dealer in Holland to the US in 2022. Our consigner put about 7,000KM of the 89,288 title verified kilometers on in the last year or so, during which time he had the recharged, new battery installed , and it was inspected. The car comes with a full inspection history in Dutch which resides in the glovebox.

The overwhelming feature of this wedge shaped car is the clamshell hood with the headlight cutouts in the round peering through the hood. This wonderfully aero slip design also has the familiar Alfa triangular shaped center to the hood. A neoprene bumper below has horizontal cutouts and a dip in the top of the bumper to accommodate the shield of the hood. Nicely rounded doors have well minded rust free gaps and allow plenty of room for easy access no matter what your size. The driver\'s side back of the hood door has a large chip that has formed at the hood door seam. A nicely raked windshield provides a front foundation for the black canvas convertible top. When down this top hides neatly under a plastic tonneau cowling. The shapely back of the car has the look of shades of the Porsche 928 with its nicely rounded over lines and full side to side horizontal tail light seamlessly inserted into the area just before the bumper takes over. A black band surrounds the car on the rockers and rear roll pan and grounds the bottom. This car is painted in Verde Acido, (light lime green),and the paint is showing nicely with a few areas of scratching and chipping mostly around the wheel wells. 16-inch wheels are wrapped by 205/50ZR16 tires from 2008

White leather high back Momo buckets provide the chairs for the passengers. These show light soiling and some discoloration in the white. The passenger side chair is more yellowed than the driver\'s side. Black carpeting floods the floors and racing between the seats is a center console. The dash is curvy in its presentation, and has several rounded instruments in front of the driver and in the center rise from the console. Also affixed in this panel is an AM/FM/CD stereo. The dash shows a bot of wear and light soiling. Behind the seats is an additional storage area also in black carpeting.

Under that clamshell hood is a 2.0 liter twin spark 4 cylinder engine. It has Bosch Motronic 2.10.3 EFI and a 5-speed manual transmission on the back. The car is front wheel drive and has a 3.56 axle. The condition of the engine is slightly corroded on of the cast aluminum parts.

The suspension parts show slight surface rust, otherwise the floor pans and unibody are looking good. Independent Macpherson struts are in front and independent coil springs are in back. Power disc braking is all around and these are Brembo 4 pot caliper brakes.

I donned my wood clogs and hopped in. This car was a quick starter with a smooth idle and peppy accelerator. It handled well and I noticed the airbag light is lit and it pulled to the left when driving.

Imported from Holland and not often seen here in the USofA. It is a nifty wedge shaped design, has an interesting paint color, and lovely clamshell and round cutouts in the hood for the headlights, and its a snappy convertible. I\'m on the hunt for a windmill or a dike to put my thumb into. Come one down.
