The Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider was a car in production from 1962 to 1965. 10,341 cars rolled out from the factory during that period, and one of them is now located in South of France, where you can experience it on some scenic driving roads. This Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider 1600, in a “Rosso Corsa” red colour, has a 1.6L four-cylinder in-line “1600 twin-cam” engine producing approx. 112 bhp at 6,500 rpm. Top speed was up to 172 km/h and the car came with a synchronized 5-speed manual gearbox. The weight is less than 1000 kilograms.
This is one of the easiest classic cars to drive and if you have not yet experienced an old car, why not start with a classic Alfa Romeo? Henry Ford said “When I see an Alfa Romeo go by, I tip my hat.”. Jeremy Clarkson said “I have argued many times that owning an Alfa is a portal through which all petrolheads must pass if they genuinely want to know what it is that differentiates a car from a toaster or a washing machine. Because Alfas have flaws, they feel human, as if they have a soul and a temper.”.
Driving a classic Alfa Romeo in Italy is a beautiful experience, because it is a car that the locals simply love. It is not bad one to experience on the French Riviera either, because some Italian engineering on French mountain roads is a great combination. The car gives you an enjoyable ride both on highways, in towns, and on some mountain roads with nice corners. It has plenty of space for your luggage so you do not have to worry about not fitting in your luggage for a 3 day drive either, if you choose to take it out on our longer tour. It is a beautiful car to look at as well, in our opinion one of the most beautiful classic Alfa Romeos ever made.
It’s not a car. It’s an Alfa Romeo.
