For a long time, the Alfa Spider was one of the most evocative names on British roads. The 1996 model featured offered a healthy dose of Latin charisma and some of the best engines you'll come across anywhere, the Spider is never anything less than a blast.
Naturally, you'll have to make some sacrifices if you want to enjoy open top motoring and the Spider will require you to travel light. It's a car that adheres to the grand old traditions of a small weekend bag, your nearest and dearest and the open road. It's a romantic ideal in a country where the open road is usually on the other side of a diesel-belching juggernaut, but its one we've been keen to buy into. From launch, the Spider was a steady seller for Alfa Romeo and there is no shortage of good quality used cars on the market.
