1986 ALFA ROMEO Spider Veloce with 72K miles. 

Power windows and mirrors; Heat/AC works well; AM/FM CD Player w/removable face plate; Remote fuel and trunk release (inside driver door).

Subtle performance enhancements make this car run stronger than most Spiders, without being a harsh ride.  Very nice exhaust note to pair with the smooth 2.0L Italian engine.   This is a turn-key car, everything works as it should including cold AC.

 

Cosmetically, NO RUST or cracks in dash.  Repaint is 10 years old and makes this more of a 5 footer, some minor dings with minimal scrape on passenger front and rear bumper, but need to look close to see.  With the blue ghost stripes and monochrome appearance, this car gets some notice.

Marchionne to make Alfa Romeo a separate company within Fiat

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 08:32:00 EST

According to a report in Automotive News that quotes "people familiar with the matter," the next big play in Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne's plan for Alfa Romeo is to break it off from Fiat Group Automobiles and set it up as a separate company within the Fiat empire, giving it the same structure as Ferrari and Maserati. The idea, say the sources, is that a transparent, standalone Alfa Romeo that has to justify its every move could clearly prove its success in the public financial statements it would have to report, finally achieving Marchionne's aim of making Alfa Romeo "a credible business proposition."
That, of course, assumes that Alfa Romeo will make a success of it. The brand hasn't made a profit in any year of Marchionne's decade at the helm; sales last year fell to numbers not seen in almost half a century and its new product offensive might not include the two vehicles currently responsible for 99 percent of its sales. We're told that the brand's six new models will begin arriving in 2016 - a roadster, a midsize sedan and large sedan, a compact SUV and large SUV, and a large coupe.
Marchionne aims to expand Alfa's global appeal in several ways, the first by stressing that they are Italian products that 'belong' to Italy. This is the stance that appears to have put the kibosh on the roadster twinned with the coming Mazda MX-5/Miata. Alfa Romeos will all be made in their home country, and if they take off they'll help bandage Fiat's problem with underused plant capacity, a bugbear that is just as problematic culturally and politically as financially. Top-tier trims would use V6 engines developed by Ferrari, and global access would get a boost by selling Alfa Romeos in Jeep's 1,700 international dealerships.

CEO says Volkswagen's buying spree is over

Mon, 03 Sep 2012 18:03:00 EST


After adding Italian motorcycle icon Ducati to its stable and spending $5.6 billion on the rest of Porsche, Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn says he's done shopping for a while.
"We have enough to do at the moment in taking our twelve brands to where we want to be," Winterkorn tells German newspaper Handelsblatt.

Get lost in Evo's sublime 2013 Car of the Year testing

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 20:00:00 EST

Every year Evo stages its Car of the Year test, bringing the best performance cars in the world to one location for an epic shootout. This year the magazine pitted eight CotY finalists against each other on Route Napoleon in Southern France - Evo claims it's the "best road in the world" - and then proceeded to nitpick the smallest of faults on each car until the winner could be named. You see, this year's lineup of machines was just so good that only one car obviously wasn't CotY material from the get-go. Can you guess which one judging from the list below?
- Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
- Audi R8 V10 Plus
