Do not confuse this listing with any other spider on Ebay. This is a future late June delivery. nbsp;from National Award Winning Roadster Salon. Car built on rust free Western US chassis. 5sp manual transmission standard. This lovely Pininfarina Spider is fully sorted. and the restoration work has our exclusive warranty. Final interior leather color may still be selected prior to delivery. Chasssis is currently white. but can be altered for an upcharge. 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 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 for late Spring delivery if a manual transmission is not preferred. This proposed Spider will be built to an Avanzato standard. to include premium paint and advanced mechanical work that is optional on lesser models. Car photographed has standard Lusso wheels. See below a description of our restoration process. This restoration includes all Basso and Avanzato features. Lusso package added. with several Ultmo upgrades. Overview Our full cosmetic and mechanical restoration 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 Rosso Corsa Ferrari exterior color. with tan caprone 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 Ultimo level spiders. All are carefully blocked and sanded to a show quality finish. then wet sanded and buffed before being re-assembled. The 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. Please note All Avanzato level cars have the engine and transmissions removed and fully rebuilt as part of the package. Basso level restorations have the engines sorted within the bay. with less extensive parts replacement. PricingRoadster 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 automobiles in general should 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 $150K 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.

About Us Roadster SalonClassic Convertible RecreationsAbout Us Pininfarina designed automobiles have been described as rolling works of art. Like a conservator who restores a classic painting to its original splendor—our artisans take forgotten. road weary Spiders. and return them to a time when they were loved and enjoyed. Our spiders are hand crafted by a team of certified Ferrari mechanics and Italian car specialist. Every chassis is thoroughly screened. refurbished and tested---so that new memories can be built confidently with the turn of a key. Roadster Salon recreates memories of our youth. Simpler times of sunny days. wind in our hair. troubles left behind and a curvy road ahead. Roadster Salon spiders are the evolution of a classic ideal. built to be enjoyed whenever the passion arises. Our intention is not to make a brand new car. Even our most ambitious projects do not change every nut and bolt. We seek to restore beauty. improve reliability. and retain practicality. Roadster Salon Spiders are meant to be driven and enjoyed. not just shipped from show to show. We currently offer four models intended to fit the needs of most customers. From the austere Classico. the high value Basso. premium Avanzato model. to the exotic Ultimo--each package offers superior value for the dollar. Every car can be built to suit the needs and tastes of individual clients. New offerings like the Lusso package and Spider Corsa provide even further inspiration. Custom features. options and color selections are yours to decide. The process is interactive. You dream it. we build it. LUXURY AUTO GROUP/ Internet remarketing solutionsBuying a car at a dealership can be daunting. High pressure salespeople. Limited selection. Adversarial negotiations. Not much fun. But buying a car on the internet has its own unique challenges. The most obvious concern is an online shopper's inability to test drive and evaluate the car in person. While internet pricing can be attractive. some feel that the unknowns outweigh the benefits. Horror stories about flawed vehicle histories. incomplete documentation. misrepresentations. selective disclosure. and title problems make many potential buyers cringe. The staff is your eyes and ears. We are marketing company representing our own inventory. sourced from some of the finest luxury car dealers in Chicago. Our commitment to complete customer satisfaction is unwavering. Internet Marketing PhilosophyIn our changing marketplace. internet sales have become a vital component to every dealer's sales profile. The internet provides us with a low cost venue to sell select inventory at near wholesale prices without compromising the resources of a dealer's retail sales operation. Internet car sales can take several forms. such as online classifieds and auctions. The most popular. and arguably the most challenging. is Internet sales. Our listings are generally offered on-line between five and ten day time frames. We have represented over 1000 fine automobiles on the internet during the past ten years. The vast majority of these vehicles were sold without the buyer seeing the vehicle prior to his commitment. How was this possible? Our success can be directly attributed to our unique ability to evaluate inventory with consistency. insight and professionalism. This talent extends beyond our hands on assessment of a vehicles cosmetic and mechanical condition. It also includes our research of various data bases to determine past road history and service records. More than half of the vehicles we are asked to represent are rejected immediately because of obvious defects or concerns. An additional percentage fails to make the final cut following our research history. Our company randomly collects/studies data from past internet transactions. We have surveyed customers about their online experiences. Direct interviews and focus data are also compiled in an effort to better understand the Internet consumer. We have worked tirelessly to upgrade and improve our services. from the way our vehicles are screened and selected for Internet sale. to delivery and aftercare procedures. The lessons learned are insightfully applied to our Internet Marketing Program. Only the most fully sorted pre-owned vehicles in our inventory are presented through our Internet marketing program. In conclusion. regardless of venue. it all comes down to the quality of the inventory represented. While cliché. you can never pay too much for a great car. It also follows that a bargain price does not assure satisfaction. Luxury Auto Group knows the difference.
