Looking for a new Spider

Hey everyone:

Many of you know me, as I acquired a n RC spider about 18 months ago and have actively posted here, as I have invested heavily in her.

Unfortunately, I had a bizarre accident with her and as repair estimates now being in excess of $55K, my insurance company is going to total the car. (I had a slow, uncontrollable and inexplicable drift off the road into a rocky mountainside - it was slow enough that the airbags didn't go off, but the cumulative suspension and rocker panel damage is now considerable. And we all know that Alfa was selling these at a loss, so the $55K in damages is an issue. And the carbon fiber tub was unscratched!)

I'm heartbroken about this. I loved her, and I feel I let the community down. :(

I am in the market for a replacement.

The only strict requirements are as follows:

Akro exhaust
CF Halo
Reasonably low mileage (< 20K)

(I can replace anything else I want on her)

I am not too particular about color.

And before anyone asks - I am keeping my designbybeau mirrors and engine cover for the replacement!


P.S. If anyone can also send me screenshot of comparable sales for insurance purposes, I would appreciate it.

P.P.S. Don't ask for pictures. I'm still too raw and it's too soon.

Sorry to hear. I went through this myself back in 2017 so I completely understand not wanting to post pictures (I never did of mine, lol).

I will keep an eye out for a nice spider. (y)
So what will happen to your car? If the tub isn’t damaged at all then it could be fixed, hopefully a good project for someone, we need to keep as many 4Cs going as possible. Sorry about what happened

Thx guys.
My insurance hasn’t gotten back to me with an offer yet, but following that, I will see if I can find out where they will auction her.
Maybe we can get someone to get her back in the road. Tub and engine are 100%!
Very sorry to hear that and hope you find a suitable candidate quickly!

I guess you've seen this one?

IIRC you have a carbon fiber hardtop so I guess adding the Koshi halo to this one wouldn't be a solution:

Hmmm … forgot about @Curvesurfer’s spider.
That may be an option…. (And then I have a replacement hardtop!!)
Oh, and @John4C, I’ll be needing another set of your wheels!
Also… if a Tributo or Italia surface, I’m willing to pay a reasonable premium.
