Bodied by the famed coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring, Alfa Romeo’s 2000 model was introduced at the Turin Auto Salon, in both Berlina (coupe) and Spider configurations. The Spider variant would prove to be the most popular with 3,443 constructed over the four year production run that ended in 1962.
Commonly referred to as the 102-series 2000, the Spider featured a cast-iron block four-cylinder engine that produced 105 HP at 5300 RPM. Proving to be far more handsome than the subsequent 2600 series, the early production cars showcase a more refined line and brilliant polished trim in strategic locations.
This stunning Alfa 2000 benefits from a level of restoration beyond the comprehension of any rational enthusiast. A “pet project” restored alongside a sister restoration of a considerably more prestigious 250 series Ferrari, the quality of workmanship, attention to detail and presentation, ensures envious complements whenever it is displayed.
The stunning color combination of black on black, using the exact grade materials of leather, wool carpet, body and paint finish and breathtaking chrome, stainless and interior dash components, there are simply no disappointments. From insanely rare items; for example, the correct steering wheel and center horn button, to exterior moldings, the list of “un-obtanium” parts is endless. The multi-year restoration required the purchase of a complete sister vehicle to ensure completeness of rare components and serve as an example for many parts that required re-manufacture.
Never before has the term been better exemplified than with this Alfa: “No expense spared”. From brand new windshield glass to the period correct Michelin tires, the Concours show field and awards podium awaits!
