Lot #302.1 - The lovely tan interior is soft and comfortable. This car also has factory air conditioning as well as a newer AM/FM stereo system in the dash. Plenty of buttons and dials make it feel suitably '80s and there's a snug-fitting tan canvas convertible top that's in very good shape indeed. The trunk isn't massive, but it's well-shaped for your gear and nicely finished with more carpet. Alfa Romeo's 2.0 liter DOHC 4 cylinder engine has proven itself to be robust and reliable over the years, yet still loves to rev with a joyous Italian tenor exhaust note. The engine bay is quite stock and nicely maintained, from the big aluminum intake to the iconic cast aluminum cam cover with Alfa Romeo proudly emblazoned on its surface. It's simply a joy to run this car hard through the gears. The 5-speed manual is delightfully direct and the suspension is competent without being harsh, because this really is a grand tourer more than it is a sports car. Braking is effective and those pretty 5-spoke alloys are reminiscent of Ferrari's rolling stock.
