STORY

The Alfa Romeo 2000 Touring Spider is a remarkable automobile from the 1960s that attracted attention for its elegant shape and powerful technology. The story of this vehicle begins with the partnership between Alfa Romeo, a renowned Italian car manufacturer, and Carrozzeria Touring, a well-known Milan-based coachbuilder.

The car was first presented as the Alfa Romeo 2000 at the Turin Motor Show in 1958. The touring version of the Spider, designed by Franco Scaglione, was introduced in 1960 and combined modern design with the sporting performance for which Alfa Romeo was known.

Under the hood, the Alfa Romeo 2000 Touring Spider was equipped with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that offered considerable power for the time. The engine's performance was backed up by a five-speed manual transmission and independent front suspension, giving the car impressive driving performance.

PERSONAL STORY

This Touring Spider lived in Austria for its entire life and was 'forgotten' in a castle in Salzburg. You might wonder how anyone could forget such a beauty. But it didn't remain undiscovered for long and was restored down to the smallest detail about 10 years ago. A so-called frame-off restoration.

The two bumpers drove the restorers to despair - they simply couldn't be found. In the end, they had to be made. Copper, galvanized and chrome-plated - an expensive affair for which you could buy a small car from that era.
