Alfa Romeo Spider (1995-2006) – buying guide, history, and specifications
The distinctive-looking Spider was nothing like its predecessors when it launched in 1995, and we still haven’t seen anything like it since then.
Few car names evoke such romantic, idyllic thoughts as Alfa Romeo Spider, but sadly it’s not a nameplate that has traditionally stood for sharp handling, engaging dynamics, and blistering performance.
Keen drivers will have been disappointed by many of the little (and usually red) Italian roadsters to bear the Alfa Spider name but one of the cars does stand out, the 1995 iteration launched in tandem with its GTV coupe sister car. This is a Spider that displays some of the passion on which the Alfa Romeo brand is built and it’s both readily available and reasonably affordable for car fans seeking a budget roadster that’s a little out of the ordinary.
The Spider name was first used on an Alfa in 1955 when the convertible version of the Giulietta arrived. The 50s Spider has now become an enjoyable little classic and well known for its role in the film, The Day of the Jackal. Its successor, also famous for its appearance on the silver screen in The Graduate, is achingly pretty and blessed with a delightful, punchy engine but its hardtop equivalent, the GT, was always the better steer.
That didn’t stop the second generation Spider, the 105-series, remaining on sale for almost 30 years. In its lifetime its bumpers grew into rubber carbuncles so that it would conform to safety regulations but that meant it certainly didn’t grow old gracefully.
Most of the 916 Spider’s excitement comes from the drivetrain. Initially, the 90s Spider was only available with a 150bhp 2-liter four-cylinder twin-spark engine. It isn’t the same all-aluminum motor used in the older 75 saloon, instead, Alfa developed a new cylinder head for a cast-iron Fiat block.
The idea might not have appealed to die-hard Alfa Romeo fans, but with 16 valves and variable cam timing, it produced good and, mostly, reliable performance. Oil pumps have been known to fail on higher mileage examples, which causes oil starvation to parts of the engine even when full of oil. Cam belts have also been known to fail earlier than expected, too – the recommended mileage for one to be changed is 72,000 miles but they have been known to break around the 53,000-mile mark.
