In 1966 Alfa Romeo introduced the “Spider 1600", a Alfa Romeo with the beautiful engine of the Giulia Sprint GT. The shape, as Alfa Romeo said, looked like a cuttlefish bone, by virtue of the rounded front and tail, connected by the convex sides, with a rather low belt line. The tail, tapered transversely and longitudinally, follows the dictates of the most classic boat-tail type. From the start the car proved very popular. Spider's mechanical bases were practically identical to those of the Giulia sedan and included independent front suspension, spiral suspension rear axle and servo-trained disc brakes on all four wheels. In December 1968 the was presented also the “Spider 1750 Veloce”, a vitaminized Duetto, equipped with the engine of the newborn GT 1750 Veloce. Under the hood we find the AR00548 engine of the 1750 series of 1.8 liters that developed a power of 118 hp, but which nevertheless led to an increase in the weight of the Alfa Romeo 1750 Spider Veloce from 990 kg to 1040 kg.
Externally this version was characterized by the adoption of the 14" rims with bigger tires and the rearview mirror on the door (in the previous version installed on the fender), while on the rear bonnet under the Alfa Romeo coat of arms the inscription "1750" stood out.
Inside stands out the beautiful three-spoke Hellebore steering wheel with wooden crown and the adoption of the large ashtray with its cigar lighters. Commercially the "Biscione" spider remains one of the most successful cars, until 1994 with the enviable result of 124,105 units sold.
