Vehicle Description

BE ONE OF THE FIRST TO OWN ONE OF THESE STUNNING, LIMITED PRODUCTION MODELS.

EACH S2 COMES COMPLETE WITH ADVANCED RACK AND PINION STEERING, ENGINE UPGRADES, RADICALLY IMPROVED BRAKING, ELECTRICAL REVISIONS, SPECIAL CHASSIS BRACING AND SUSPENSION ENHANCEMENTS FOR IMPROVED HANDLING!

This lovely Pininfarina Spider is fully sorted, and the restoration work has our exclusive warranty. Final exterior and interior leather color may still be selected prior to delivery. Chasssis is currently blue, but can be altered at no charge. Other original chassis and colors are available.

Pininfarina version from 1983-1985 are most prized, and built in the most limited numbers. Fewer of these were made in these three model years than Ferrari or Maserati. Produced exclusively at the Pininfarina factory.

Please note that this is a limited production Lusso S2 model, one of only 50 to be built.

The Lusso package features optional luxury equipment, fuel injection, and the look of vintage spiders from the late 1960"s Fiat Spider 124. Fewer than ten of these special cars are built each year, and all come with a commerative signed number plate and leather binder. Bumpers are cosmetic and do not meet contemporary 5 mph standards.

We have a second rust free California chassis in automatic-- available for this project with the same delivery date if a manual transmission is not preferred.

This proposed Spider Lusso S2 appointments, includes premium paint and advanced mechanical work that is optional on lesser models.

Car photographed has standard upgraded Lusso S2 16" Vintage Alloy wheels mounted on Pirelli P7 high performance radials. See below a description of our restoration process.

Overview

Our full cosmetic and mechanical restoration/modification process is currently being undertaken, and the end result will be simply stunning. Detailed information about what this process entails can be found on our web site, and partially itemized below.

The Lusso leather upgrade package features premium leather seats and head rests, leather door panels, pulls, accents, and leather rear wings. In keeping with the original theme, choice of vintage premium German loop carpet or Wilton wool is included. The signature exterior color, with tan Ferrari grade leather is one of the most popular combinations ever offered on this model. Other color options can be screened on our web site.

Cosmetic Impressions

Every Roadster Salon car is completely disassembled prior to paint. Body lines are taught, and new metal is used to repair any imperfections. Media blasting is standard practice on Avanzato and above level spiders. All are carefully blocked and sanded to a show quality finish. Following re-assembly, they are extensively wet sanded and buffed for a mirror like finish. This color combination is ideal for warm climates. Panel fitment is better than when the car came out of the factory.

We can't say enough about our Lusso interior upgrades. All key surfaces were covered by hand with premum leather--cut from the same premium hyde. No color match issues. Workmanship is to a Ferrari/Maserati standard. Bellissimo. Optional leather rear seat is available which can be added for an upcharge.

Mechanical and Driving Impressions

It is a joy to drive a fully sorted classic Italian convertible. Engine start up, and idle feels sharp and lively. Acceleration cruising and braking remind the driver of a contemporary car. All of the car's original endearing personality and character remains, but without the reliability concerns. Just tremendous fun overall.

It is hard to describe the difference between our original Lusso and the S2 version on the road. The advanced proprietary rack and pinion steering has the incredible feel of a much more contemporary car. Chassis bracing gives the Lusso a measure of structural rigidity that no other Spider possesses. Bumpy road surfaces and railroad crossing are no longer a rattle fest. The car's handling is transformed from the original version, and braking is like the best that 2015 has to offer. Simply incredible.

Please note all Avanzato level and above cars have the engine and transmissions removed and fully rebuilt as part of the package. Additional horsepower is on tap for the Lusso S2, which is built with a lightened flywheel, cold air intake, special cams, exhaust and other enhancements for an approximte 25HP improvement.

Pricing

Roadster salon carefully hand crafts about 30 cars per year, detailed to the specifications of each customer. There recently has been a huge upswing in the classic car market for vintage spiders. However, It is important to note that restored/modified automobiles in general are be built for the love and enjoyment of their owners. They are not hugely profitable endeavors--for the builder or reseller. To value a Roadster Salon Spider along side a used Fiat--or measure by a "car guide" is to miss the point of the car entirely.

Our goal is not to build a $250K trailer queen, but rather a car that can be casually enjoyed when ever the passion arises. In that regard, our stirring recreations exceed all reasonable expectations. 10/10. Considering the quality, workmanship, and warranty, Roadster Salon Spiders are one of the great values in the market today.
