This is a car that. Won awards before it had even moved 12 months ago it was announced. Cabriolet of the year of the Geneva Motor Show that's like giving Nicole Kidman the Oscar for Best Actress based on a passport photograph but then again that's understandable because when it comes to posi open-topped two-seater as well I'll tell you what the Italians have a good word for it bellezza which. Roughly translated means you would it's the Alfa Romeo spider essentially a Cabriolet version of the Brera coupe a with a few key alterations those of you with Lula's in your eyes will have already noticed that it's a bit shorter and a bit lower and those of you who've just eyes will have noticed there's no. Ceiling that's good because I have a bit of a problem with the Brera and this incidentally with the roof up in that I don't fit I'm just over six feet tall and generally I have to drive them either like. This or like this neither of which is a particularly elegant solution in the Spyder however it's obviously not a problem if you speak to people down the pub or even here in Morocco they'll tell you about alphas terrible old reputation in particular that habit of. Rusting so quickly the cars were actually clusters water-soluble alpha salt sir if you will but we're heading for the Sahara where it hasn't rained for ages so I think we're saying the plot. Bores will also tell you that alphas are terribly terribly unreliable but I've never understood that it's like saying you're not going to date Nicole Kidman Oscar winner because she's not very punctual I mean come on live dangerously mind you we are heading towards the Sahara Desert where a breakdown will be sweaty I'm loving. This engine but not especially for its performance it's a 3.2 liter v6 with 260 brake horsepower which means it puts the spider to 150 miles an hour and gets to 62 in 7 seconds thing is that's over a second slower than an Audi TT drop-top. But it does sound husky and sexy and gives this car a real definite character at just over 31,000 pounds this isn't the cheap thrill there's a 2.2 liter petrol version available it'll save you 5 grand but given that's only got 185 brake horsepower I doubt it actually moves one day soon a 2.4 diesel will join the. Range although whether you can bring yourself to drive a beautiful roadster that cracks and clatters like a tractor is a different matter see if you chop the top off the car it's the. Old problem you lose all torsional rigidity and they start flopping around like seals on heat alpha reckon they've made this spider 25% stiffer than the car that went before it all I need now is some bends they look nice okay so it's not exactly a sports car you really start to shift it's all phobia dragon it's. Absolutely all over the place thing is it's got really good bits the steering's nice and quick it's very fast a 2.25 but unfortunately a sharp turning like that accentuates the fact that the car rolls a lot so it feels like it's diving into all the corners v6. Is badged cube for signifying four-wheel drive but it's really there as a way of controlling the power and doesn't really make this into a fun car to chuck about. It's got a SR and VT s and DSD all the rest of the kind of electronics because it will let me. Need them he's your favorite presenter on 5th gear. Me yes into.
