1966-1968 ALFA ROMEO Spider 1600 Duetto specifications Classic and Performance Car

Forever associated with Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate, the stylish little Duetto didn’t hang around for long at all. The pretty little Pininfarina-styled roadster appeared in 1966 as the final genuinely new variant on the 105-Series platform and was marked out by its enclosed headlamps and boat-tail rear end. Powered by the 1570cc twin-cam, it was a gem to drive with great handling, sharp steering and excellent all-round disc braking. It was also quicker than an MGB, although considerably more expensive in the UK.
