Yes, one of Bertone’s masterpieces was built by Touring, and that’s easy to understand why.

Building a spider is not only about chopping a roof but mostly about making the chassis stronger, especially on cars built fifty years ago, an age when the weren’t computer simulation to calculate forces and torsions rates. So around 1,000 bodies were send to Milano at Touring coachworks to do such job properly.

The seller of this barn find says that this is an european car which has been stored for the last ten years: the engine turns and so the wheels; it has some rust but nothing particularly worrying (at least the seller says so). It is a normal Sprint with the chopped roof: we don’t believe it and, at the end of the day, you need just to send an email to Marco Fazio at Alfa Romeo archive to know the truth. Find it for sale at €43,900 (today $49,000) here in Paris, France.
