The Duetto was featured in 1967's hit movie 'The Graduate', and while lead actress Anne Bancroft stole hearts, for many in car circles the "true" scene-stealer was the 1966 Alfa Romeo 1600 Spider Duetto - a real beauty that captivated every eye whenever it graced the screen. In a memorable moment, lead actor Dustin Hoffman takes the wheel of the 1600 Spider, and cruises down the freeway with Simon & Garfunkel’s music playing in the background en route to Katharine Ross’ character at the church (it's also worth noting that Dustin Hoffman's uncle was evidently an Alfa Romeo importer!). Stills from the movie below...


The Alfa Romeo Spider (105/115 series) is a two-seater, front engine, rear drive roadster manufactured and marketed by Alfa Romeo from 1966 to 1994 in four distinct series, each with modifications ranging from modest to extensive. As successor to the Giulia Spider, the Spider remained in production for almost three decades. The first three series were assembled by Pininfarina in Grugliasco and the fourth series in San Giorgio Canavese. The last Spider was manufactured in April 1993 — the last rear wheel drive Alfa Romeo before the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione of 2007. The Spider was launched at the 36th Geneva Motor Show in March 1966, and together with the Giulia Sprint GT Veloce tested by the press at an event organised in Gardone Riviera. To choose a name for the spider Alfa Romeo announced a write-in competition, offering an example of the new car as a prize. Over 100 thousand ballots were sent in, the great majority from Italy; the winner was Guidobaldo Trionfi, a man from Brescia, who proposed the name "Duetto" (duet). However it could not be officially adopted due to trademark issues, and the car was named simply Alfa Romeo Spider 1600.
