45k for a rolling piece of Italian art

This Pininfarina-bodied Alfa Romeo Spyder has been dubbed 'the best of its kind' in the UK

In a break from the excitement surrounding the run-up to RM's Amelia Island auction and Bonhams' Collectors' Motor Cars and Automobilia sale in Oxford, here's a quick look at another hidden gem available on the classic motors market.

This 1964 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spyder is claimed by some to be the best RHD Spyder in the UK, and almost certainly the best right-hand-drive example.

 The 1964 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spyder, priced at 45,000

Number eight of just 103 RHD examples ever made, this car has an unsurprisingly good provenance. It wasoriginally supplied byracing legend Roy Salvadori's Chipstead Motor Company to a client in New Zealand.

The car returned to the UK a year later and eventually underwentan extensive restoration between 1994-98, with the paperwork to prove it.

With a Pininfarina body atop its six-cylinder engine, this rare and exotic historic Italian Sportscar is valued at 45,000 ($69,192). It is for sale in Surrey, UK.
