Our Spyder presented in metallic silver, was factory built in Brazil in 1978, using the same tubular chassis as used in the original, it has a 1500cc boxer engine and weighs just over 600 kgs. It has a close ratio gearbox and is an absolute pleasure to drive through the winding Costa Blanca roads on a sunny day!
