1966 Alfa Romeo 1600 Duetto Spider

The glamorous Duetto, which starred in The Graduate alongside Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft, was redolent of the 1960s and yet has proved a long lived classic. It was the last design personally executed by the famous Battista Pinin Farina and its name was the result of a competition run by the manufacturer at the time of its launch in 1966. Styling cues include the so-called ‘cuttlefish-bone’ profile with a rounded nose and tail, the Alfa Romeo shield dividing the front bumper. — Alfa Romeo
