No-one does mainstream quirky better than Alfa Romeo, and the Alfa Spider reflects this. Hollywood celebrated it, too.

Now though, motoring presenter Paul Woodford celebrates Alfa’s longest running models, starting at the beginning through to this Series 4 car.

This is a classic car with a big soul. Can it live up to a comparison with one of MG’s most debated models though? Take a fresh look at the Alfa Spider with Paul and the Classics Driven team.
