Ah, the old Alfa Spider. My old love. However, I don't like the US-spec because of its plastic bumpers that ruin the gorgeous looking front.

Anyway, that's an impressive laptime, faster than those modern dumm hybrids.

@ Viking: Top speed: 120 MPH. :) The steering wheel on the left side of the car indicates it could be American, but I don't know about that front license plate, it looks awfully small.

Darn, I don't seem to have a photo of this model to add. If someone has one handy please add it, just be sure it is the 1976 to 1982 U.S. Spec version. Thanks.

This is the later U.S. spec Series 2 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce with the black rubber bumpers to meet U.S. crash standards. I added this so I could add the Willow Springs lap time from the Car and Driver comparison test in the April 1979 issue. :)

0-60 mph: 9.8
0-100 mph: 36.7
1/4 mile: 17.8 @ 80 mph

As usual the dimensions are a bit off because the program converts my figures (in inches) to meters, oh well close enough. :)
