1993 ALFA ROMEO SPIDER S4

KEY FACTS

  • A smart Spider S4 that has been enjoyed as intended, with significant refurbishment and maintenance in recent years.
  • Under the bonnet is the 124bhp 2.0-litre twin-cam engine that loves to rev out, driving the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission.
  • Initially registered overseas in 1993, it was imported to the UK and re-registered in July 1997. The car was subsequently converted to right-hand drive, which is believed to have been done by Bell & Colvill.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • Finished in the classic red over black colour scheme, which is its original factory specification, this Spider benefits from having a rare original hard top.
  • Accompanying the car are all of the original books, including the stamped service record, and a raft of maintenance invoices, with a file around one inch thick.
  • Its speedometer was changed (recorded in the service book) at 76,907 km, and the current readout is 60,880 km, so the accurate total is 137,787 km (85,616 miles)
  • In 2014 its suspension was changed to the sport handling kit with lowered Eibach springs and Koni shock absorbers. However, the vendor states that the ride is very sporty now and arguably too hard, so he is supplying a brand new set of springs with the car should the next owner wish to change them.

CONDITION

  • There is no bodywork damage or evidence of prior accidents. In 2018, Station View Garage carried out a full refurbishment of the underbody, with various welding repairs and fabrication of new panels. The sills, floors, and jacking points were all attended to, and finished with red oxide primer and body-colour paint where appropriate.
  • The vendor states that the paintwork is in good condition, with some minor stone chips, small dents on a door, a couple of scuffs on the rear bumper and some scuffs and hairline cracks on the front bumper.
  • Most of the interior is in good condition for its age; however, the driver’s side door card is lifting in one corner, and the driver’s seat bolster is in need of repair. The passenger side has already been rectified with a patch fix.
  • There is a small tear in the rear soft top screen, which the next owner can attend to in due course, but the car also comes with the very rare hard top, meaning it can still be used in inclement weather.
  • There are no known mechanical or electrical faults.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 8 August 2020 at 60,159 miles, which was a clean pass with no advisories.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • It had recent services in 2020 and 2019.
  • A vast history file includes invoices totalling around £22,000 in maintenance, including just under £1,900 spent on the underbody refurbishment in 2018.
  • It will also come supplied with a full service kit, and an extra sports exhaust silencer.
  • The vendor states that while the car drives very well, it would benefit from an annual service.

SUMMARY

This Alfa Romeo Spider S4 is a highly original example of the final iteration of this stylish sports car. Equipped with the most powerful engine, this car has had a significant amount invested in recent years to ensure it is both structurally and mechanically solid, and it is now ready to enjoy on dry days with the top down, or as a reliable modern classic for daily use or longer road trips.
