Alfa Romeo '916' Spider

With values of the original Spider having increased dramatically in recent years, it falls to the front-wheel drive 916-series model of 1995-2006 to offer the best value – and some serious temptation for fans of modern-classic Italian sportsters. Effectively a roadster version of the same-era GTV coupe, the Spider was available with either four-cylinder Twin Spark or 3.0-litre (later 3.2) V6 power, each engine offering great performance and a superb soundtrack. And you needn’t pay a fortune for the privilege, with MoT’d Spiders available from £1500 or less – although £3000-5000 will secure a smart, low-mileage early car.
