The Alfa Romeo Spider is Back

Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, this classic is affordable but doesn't skimp on style

One of the most famous automotive names of all time, the Alfa Romeo Spider, will be re-born at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show with the launch of the all-new Alfa Romeo Spider. Like its predecessors, the Giulietta Spider of the 1950s and the 1990s Alfa Romeo Spider, the new Alfa Romeo Spider is a unique blend of style, performance and, considering what it offers, affordability, with cutting edge solutions in terms of mechanical specifications, including for the first time a four wheel drive Alfa Spider.

The new Spider is a generously-sized two-seater -- 1,830 millimetres wide, 4,396 long and 1,367 high -- characterised by elongated rear lights and four exhaust pipes which accentuate the performance-orientated temperament.
