Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider Osso di Seppia
Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider Osso di Seppia
The focus of this Alfa Romeo art print is one of the most distinguished shapes in the automotive world. This Osso di Seppia (Italian for cuttlebone) car is a pure legend with its elegant curves and proven chassis. It also makes a fabulous appearance in the movie The Graduate with Dustin Hoffman behind the wheel.
Osso di Seppia is pure Alfa Romeo art
This Alfa Romeo Spider is the very last project of Batista Pininfarina. The long tail, the curved sides, and the rising exhaust pipe are the trademark elements of the car. It is the motoring equivalent of Dolce Vita, symbolizing the beautiful, careless and sweet living in Southern Europe during the '60s.
Although it cannot brag with exceptional engine power or speed, the Spider in its first Osso di Seppia edition is an eternal car model. Put the peppy 4-cylinder engine in the equation and you have one of the most joyful Italian cars.
It is light, simple, beautiful and (almost) reliable. Believe it or not, when the automotive press sees the car, the journalists don't approve of its design. They label the Alfa Romeo Spider as "gimmicky" and "poured from a jelly mould". The good news is that time erases injustice and the story of this car is the evidence for that.
Joel Clark's art depicts the car in its original, late '60s condition with basic wheels coming right from the Giulia sedan. They have shiny chromed hubcaps so you do not get distracted by the rear end of the car. It's a long rear boot sloped to a particular point just like the front where the notorious Alfa Romeo twin-cam engine is. With dual Weber carburettors or with SPICA mechanical injection, this 4-cylinder engineering magic produces between 88 and 116 hp, depending on the volume of its cylinders.
