The Alfa Romeo GTV and Spider we re-launched in 1995 on a modified version of the Fiat tipo due (type 2) platform (also found under the Fiat Brava/Bravo/Marea/Multipla) and borrowed suspension from the Alfa 155. Styling was done by Enrico Fumia at Pininfarina which resulted in a design gorgeous and sexy, but not without questionable elements that remind me of Megan Fox's thumbs. Find this 2004 Alfa Romeo Spider Lusso offered for $15,999 in Boston, MA via craigslist.
It is very odd to see this generation of Alfa Romeo GTV/Spider on craigslist these cars were never exported to North America. Obviously a few made the transatlantic trip, but if you drive this, don't expect to see another on the road.
Power comes from a front mounted 3.0 liter 24-valve V6 good for 218 horsepower (although this might also be the 3.2 liter rated at 240 hp since it is a 2004 model year) and 195 ft-lbs of torque. Power goes to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox and is decently brisk in the 6.5 second to 60mph range.
