The history of the Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto would begin with the Pininfarina-designed Spider Speciale Aerodynamica, which was displayed at the 1961 Turin Motor Show. Because concept-to-production time took much longer in those days, the Duetto would not come into fruition until 1966. Interestingly, the name Duetto would come about from a competition held by Alfa Romeo in Italy to distinguish the car from its Giulia 105-Serie stable mates, the Coupe and the Berlina, and would be accepted for its reference to the two-seat layout. The engine was a 1,570cc variant of the traditional Alfa Romeo twin-cam four-cylinder engine and would have dual Weber carburetors and 109hp. The original Duetto would remain in production from 1966 to 1967 and would be replaced in late 1967 by the 1,750 Spider Veloce, which offered a more powerful 1,779cc engine. The cars official name was the 1750 Spider Veloce, with the name Duetto being dropped. Later, a Spider 1300 Junior would release in 1968. It would offer a 1,290cc engine and 89hp. The Junior edition is easily identified by the black-colored lower front bumper.
