Classic Car | Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto (1966)
Something relating to this car just makes us wish to drive the Italian countryside while occasionally stopping to drink local wines. Plus, any time you can aquire a car with style AND storage space, well you only struck gold my friend. It's perfect for storing all of the sheets of paper with phone numbers on them.
The initial 1966 Spider shape was the results of numerous Pininfarina design studies, concept cars showing traits incorporated in the last production design. 10 The very first one was the Alfa Romeo Superflow, a concept car built upon the chassis of the retired 6C 3000 CM racing car and first show in the 1956 Turin Motor Show. 10 Despite becoming an aerodynamic coupé with prominent fins upon the rear, and also a futuristic all-plexiglas greenhouse and front wings, the Superflow already shown the overall body shape of the longer term Spider and also the scallops on the edges. Inside the following years the Superflow was updated three times into three more different concept cars, namely a Superflow II coupé, then an open-top spider and lastly another Superflow IV coupé. The foremost significant inside the Spider’s design history was the next, the open-top Alfa Romeo Spider Super Sport, shown in the 1959 Geneva Motor Show. 10 It did without having the rear fins from the Superflow and Superflow II, showing for the very first time the rounded cuttlebone-shaped tail and tail light configuration from the Spider. 10 Last from the Spider’s forerunner was the Giulietta Sprint Speciale-based Alfa Romeo Giulietta SS Spider Aerodinamica, which premiered in the 1961 Turin Motor Show. 1011 It was eventually similar in shape towards the production car, except for hideaway headlamps.
The glamorous Duetto, which starred in The Graduate alongside Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft, was redolent from the 1960s but has proved an extended lived classic. It was eventually the final design personally executed by the well-known Battista Pinin Farina and it is name was the results of a competition run from the manufacturer at that time of their launch in 1966. Styling cues include the so-called 'cuttlefish-bone' profile having a rounded nose and tail, the Alfa Romeo shield dividing the front bumper
