Gorgeous Carrozzeria Touring-bodied spider with desirable Borrani alloy wheels. A fabulous event car in highly desirable spec.
This 1959 Alfa Romeo 2000 wears beautiful and highly desirable spider coachwork by Touring. It is a beautiful example of this rare model, with its vivid Alfa red paintwork accented by a black top and interior and gorgeous polished Borrani wire wheels; an expensive and scarce factory option. Carrozzeria Touring’s coachwork is simply beautiful, featuring crisp lines dotted with subtly incorporated scoops and vents that were de rigueur for the time, particularly as Alfa Romeo attempted to appeal to American buyers. Panel fit on this car is outstanding, the doors closing with the lightest touch, indicating excellent structure integrity. Highlighting the paint is exterior brightwork which is beautifully presented with straight bumpers, excellent body side moldings, and fine detailing around the grilles and lamps. As mentioned, the car rides on a set of fabulous and very rare alloy Borrani wheels wrapped in period correct Michelin X radial tires which give it the perfect stance and gobs of road presence………………………..
