“Bianco Fredo” Alfa Romeo Spider
“Bianco Fredo” Alfa Romeo Spider
Classic rear-wheel drive Italian sportscar
Final evolution of Pininfarina’s original design
Useful sized boot – ideal for a weekend away or longer
Wind deflector to keep you cosy!
Easy to drive – lightweight controls and power steering
2 litre fuel-injected engine and 5 speed gearbox
With her clean 1960s inspired lines (remember Dustin Hoffman driving an early one in the Graduate?) the very stylish Alfa Romeo Spider just oozes Italian charm. She invites you to enjoy the open road and immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and scents of blossom, birds and big Herefordshire skies. The perfect companion for a day-trip, a weekend or even a longer tour, the Spider has a generous and secure boot for your luggage. Her manually operated hood is delightfully simple to raise or lower when you need to, but there’s no doubt in our mind that you’ll prefer the top-down option!
Morgan Plus 4
The Quintessential British Sports Car
Strictly snug 2 seater
Lusty 2 litre fuel-injected engine – keeps up easily in modern traffic
Hand-made by craftsmen in nearby Malvern, Worcestershire
Easy-up speed-fit hood – if the weather is not so obliging
A uniquely engaging driving experience!
Morgan Motor Company is an iconic name in the British car industry that still builds around 850 brand new cars a year at their Malvern factory, just 13 miles from us here at Verzon House.
With its lovingly hand-built bodywork laid over an ash-wood frame and separate steel chassis, the traditional Morgan design has remained largely unchanged for decades. Beneath its long and louvred bonnet though, a modern 2 litre fuel-injected engine gives this lightweight vehicle plenty of lively performance for you to enjoy. Storage space is minimal (a shelf behind the seats + small glovebox) so you’ll need to travel light!
Feel the wind in your hair behind the wheel and dress for the weather!
Easy little car to drive
Useful boot and luggage rack – good for weekends
1800cc engine with twin carburettors
4 speed manual with overdrive for relaxed cruising
“Your mother wouldn’t like it” said the adverts for the trendy MGB roadster back in the day. It was however, the go-to affordable British sports car of the sixties and seventies. Many have rotted away, but our pretty Inca Yellow MG, was fortunate in being rustproofed from new.
MG made over half a million of these very popular little roadsters over the 18 years from 1962 to 1980. A practical car, the MGB has a reasonably sized boot and is very easy to drive. Flick the little overdrive switch on the higher gears to relax the engine revs and enjoy improved fuel economy.
