1988 ALFA ROMEO QUADRIFOGLIO SPIDER 44000 ACTUAL MILES RARE HARD TOP WOW CALL DAVE TODAY 630-327-8321
You have now just discovered a very well maintained and super low mileage 1988 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Edition. Presented in a very stunning color combination of Jet Black Exterior and highly complimented with Grey leather Bucket seating with Red Stitching and Fire Red Carpets, this Quadrifoglio has only been driven 44,000 miles since new. The Quadrifoglio Edition is the very top level model available in the Alfa Spider Series and sits atop the basic Graduate and Voloce trim levels. The term Quadrifoglio derives from Alfa Racing history that includes a gentleman named Dino Ferrari. For those who have interest in history please read the blog below for the full story on the term Quadrifoglio.
The Alfa Romeo Spider Quadrifoglio was introduced in 1985 and was joined by the Veloce and Graduate. The Graduate, named in honor of the movie The Graduate where an Alfa Romeo had a starring role, was the entry level vehicle. It featured vinyl seats, steel wheels, and other 'entry-level' amenities. The Veloce edition featured leather seats, cloth top, power windows, and power external rear view mirrors. The wheels were constructed from alloy. The Quadrifoglio was the top-of-the-line Spider at the time, featuring specially designed leather seats, alloy wheels, air conditioning, redesigned front spoiler, side skirts, canvas top and detachable hardtop.

QUADRIFOGLIO HISTORY:
At the turn of the 20th century, motor racing was an incredibly dangerous sport that often claimed the lives of its most talented drivers. This story has an element of tragedy, but first, we must begin with Il Commendatore himself, Enzo Ferrari.
It's hard to imagine a world without Ferrari, but early in his career, the great man was struggling, out of work, and broke. The situation was so desperate that Ferrari contemplated suicide.
Sometime in 1919, however, at his local watering hole Vittorio Emanuele, Ferrari began talking to Ugo Sivocci, who at the time was working with the small automaker CMN. The two made fast friends, and over subsequent months the poor Ferrari often dined at Sivocci home. As soon as Sivocci had an opening for his new friend, he offered it, a move that would forever alter the course of automotive history: it was Sivocci who first put Ferrari behind the wheel of a racing car.
Together, they devised novel ways of testing their machines. For the 10th Targa Florio, they drove their cars to the start line using public roads, and at one point at night while driving through the sparsely populated Italian countryside the pair were attacked by a pack of wolves!
When Ferrari was hired by Alfa Romeo, he extended the same favor to his friend Sivocci, who soon followed him to the more prestigious marque. Together with Ferrari, they formed two of the four slots on Alfa Romeo's first factory racing team-the other two drivers were Giuseppe Campari and Alberto Ascari. Of the four, Sivocci was quick but often not able to secure victory, earning him the reputation as a driver who never had Lady Fortune on his side.
The 1923 Targa Florio would be different, however, and Sivocci was so fed up of his bad luck that he decided to add a symbol of luck to his Alfa Romeo racing car: a four-leaf clover.
Sivocci won the 1923 Targa Florio-and, apart from his talent behind the wheel, it seemed as though the Quadrifoglio helped win him the race.
But was the symbol to overcome superstition or for some other reason? As historians write, the cloverleaf may have been a way for spectators, road users, and other competitors to more quickly see Sivocci's car from a distance: don't forget, the roads raced on were often unpaved and dusty.
Sadly, the Quadrifoglio couldn't save Sivocci, who died later that year during practice for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza-the now well-known symbol hadn't yet been painted on his Alfa Romeo P1 race car. His death was recognized in a symbolic change to the Quadrifoglio: before Monza, the clover sat inside a white diamond, each point said to represent each of the Alfa Romeo factory drivers.
When Sivocci died, one of the points was removed, creating the Quadrifoglio triangle emblem that continues to this day. Now used as a symbolic link to Alfa Romeo's rich racing heritage, the four-leaf clover can be seen on sportier trim levels of the company's sedans, coupes, and hatchbacks-a small reminder of the friendship that forever changed the lives of Enzo Ferrari and Ugo Sivocci.
