The second generation of the Alfa Romeo Spider has the code name of “115”, but is known in Italy also with the ironic name “Coda tronca”, which in English means truncated tail. This nickname emphasizes how the Spider II’s wedge-shaped and linear rear is abruptly interrupted by a vertical cut. This is obviously due to a stylistic choice to differentiate the new model from the old one, but also to increase the vehicle’s aerodynamic coefficient. The front is distinguished by the perfectly round headlights and the typical triangular grille that is still today of the cars of the “Biscione” brand. The interiors are elegant and youthful. The engines are different, and range from 109 to 126 horsepower for the version nicknamed “Veloce”, which in Italian means fast. Despite having been produced for 23 years (from 1969 to 1982), this 2nd gen has never received substantial updates, neither externally nor mechanically.
