1994 Alfa Romeo Spider Commemorative Edition

In 1993, Alfa Romeo wound down production of the long lived Spider, with some of the remaining inventory being sold as 1994 models. Before parting ways with the US market in 1995, Alfa Romeo sold 190 Spiders in 1994 badged as a CE, or Commemorative Edition. The differences between a regular Spider and CE were minor, limited to burlwood interior trim, special badging front and rear, gold trimmed emblems on the alloy wheel centers and an owners kit comprised of a leather portfolio, numbered keychain, and documentation. Also, a plaque was affixed to the dashboard denoting the number in the CE series you were driving. This was a rather inexpensive way to celebrate the end of almost thirty years of Spiders, beginning with the Duetto in 1966. This CE Spider for sale outside of Philadelphia has a reasonable 51,000 miles on the clock.

1994 Alfa Romeo Spider Commemorative Edition

This classic Italian roadster has only 51k miles. If you are familiar with these cars, you will know that they were a very successful model for Alfa, originally offered in 1966, this 1994 C.E. model is represents the pinnacle of this platform. Bosch motronic engine management, burlwood trim, dash plaque, unique leather/suede seating surfaces. This is a nice clean car, current PA state inspection, well maintained, came from a true collector/enthusiast. He is moving some cars around in his collection (30+) and this is being made available.

Although it is not pictured, the factory supplied hard top is included with the sale. Aftermarket stereo system/speakers looks to be of high quality and installation, however the head unit does not currently power on. Could be something simple, we have not looked into it. Have all keys, manuals (Including the C.E. packet) and many service records.

Given the limited difference between a Spider Veloce and a CE, there is not a lot of variance in value between the two models. The most important aspect of a 1994 Spiders is that these are the final Spiders to have been sold new stateside. Clean Spiders with under 50,000 miles can bring between $15,000 to $20,000 on a good day. This example comes with service records and appears straight and clean. The only detractor for me is the aftermarket stereo, which is inoperable. Provided the mechanicals are sorted and there are no hidden issues, one could expect this Spider to bring somewhere between $14,000 to $16,000.
