Let's look at two of them.
ALFA ROMEO Spider Duetto "Osso di seppia"
The Duetto was designed by Pininfarina and was presented at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show for the first time; just to remind you of its original prestige. Created by joining the chassis of Giulia and the engine of Giulia 1600 GTV, this is one of the few Italian cars that is well-known overseas. Its characteristic tail is unique and reminds us of the film "The Graduate", where Dustin Hoffman drives a Duetto "Osso di Seppia" or Round-tail. The word "osso di seppia" means cuttlefish or squid in Italian. If you have a pet canary in a cage, you might have some "osso di seppia" because it's the white chalk thing the bird uses to polish its beak on. People think the rear end of the car looks like that.
Sprintage Class Car HireThis is the typical English spider, sporting and elegant; it comes out of a project for a racing car, the MG "EX 182", which took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1955. Thanks to its line, with superbly classic curves, it became the object of desires for a lot of men of the '50 and the '60, both in Europe and across the ocean. In the States became the favourite car of the American Aeronautic Officers back from the European bases, who used it to compete on the airstrips.
