Alfa Romeo Duetto Boat Tail
A prime example of the legendary Alfa Romeo Duetto Boat Tail finished in Verde Aqua, UK delivered car.
The popular 101 series Guilia Spyder, which had been a mainstay of production, found its replacement with Duetto Spyder, which was debuted at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show. With body design by Pininfarina, the Duetto captivated the public with its sleek and sporty lines. It is said and widely accepted that the attractive design was inspired by a styling exercise on a 3.0 liter Disco Volante chassis seen at Geneva in 1959, impressively almost 10 years earlier. Reliability and performance were never issues as the majority of the mechanical components were carried over unaltered from those of the Giulia. Alfa Romeo had built a tradition of making light and agile cars and the Duetto was no exception as it also threw in performance.
The public's love for the Alfa exploded when Dustin Hoffman drove it in the historic film, The Graduate and the model would forever be cemented as one of the most popular designs in the company's long and well-established history. Impressively, the essence and basic styling of this car survived in what were continually evolving models well into the 1990s. However, it is these early cars from the late 1960s with the signature boattails look that have proven the most desirable and attractive of the line.
The car we're offering is a UK delivered example, finished in Verde Aqua with a black interior having covered less than 50,000 original miles and has recently been fitted with a new stereo unit.
