Petrolicious has done an interesting mini-documentary series called ‘Made To Drive’ where they focus on cars, their drivers and their stories. In one of their instalments, they talk to engineer, Carlo Neiro who drives a 1971 Alfa Romeo Spider 1300 Junior as his everyday car. The film takes you down scenic Italian roads is it talks to Carlo about his love for his Alfa and why he got one. It’s easy to fall in love with the car and the countryside when pictured in the dazzling warm sun and nestled between greenery, en route to a restaurant with your loved ones.

We’ve got a similar Alfa in our hanger at the moment that is in search for its new home. Our Alfa is the slightly later but just as lovable 1972 Alfa Romeo Series 2 Spider in the same burnt orange hue which contrasts beautifully with blue skies and green views, evoking memories of blissful roundtrips. You might not be able to get to the Italy at the moment, but you can certainly imagine yourself there a bit closer behind the wheel of an Alfa Romeo roadster.

Take a look at our charming Alfa here.
