The Spyder
The Beta 2000 is a rare car and the 2000 is the engine to have with a lively peaky
unit that truly loves to be revved, these Lancia’s with this unit drive superbly and
on a summers evening with the roof down the feedback from the car and input from the
driver is a match made in motoring heaven. Features a Targa top roof panel, a
roll-over bar and folding rear roof. The styling is unique, designed by Pininfarina
but actually, built by Zagato. Lampredi twincam 113 bhp, neutral front wheel drive
handling, independent suspension with a 5-speed manual gearbox, the cars are pretty
light and handle and stop very well. The Spyder exudes an extravaganza as with all
things Italian, a car that is bought with the heart and not the head, the engine
sounds fantastic and sweeping in and out of corners downshifting is the cars ace card,
difficult to have more fun than this with your clothes on, the twin cam picks up and goes
like a scalded cat with a unique soundtrack.

Condition
The paint is beautiful having benefited from a bare metal glass out panels off respray
in August 2017 at a cost of £5000, this is all illustrated within a bespoke photo
album. Finished wonderfully in Israeli Air Force Blue, a great shade and a very
professional no holds barred paint job; this Lancia can go to straight to your local
show. Needless to say, there is no rust areas of concern and no imperfections on the
paint. Since being painted it has covered less than 600 miles on the road. The
interior has been tastefully retrimmed in good quality Tan leather with a Diamond
pattern.
The dashboard and door cards have been re upholstered in leather also. Period wooden
steering wheel and gear knob finish the look. The alloys are stone mint with a
polished finish, shod with matching as new Pirelli tyres. Both the Targa top and
the rear soft top are in perfect condition looking to have been replaced recently.
K&N filter element sits on top allowing the engine to breathe properly. Upgraded
ignition leads to help it spark cleaner.

History - £9000 Spent documented in last 3 years and 600 miles
A thick folder of bills dating back to the 80s accompanies the car, inclusive of a
comprehensive MOT history warranting the very low mileage. Nice touches such as
original sales poster and owners’ handbooks complete what is an excellent story.
This Beta has been loved and of late had absolute fortunes spent on it painstakingly
by a previous owner who had exacting standards and a love of Italian classics. The
underside (which is pictured in the gallery) is in fantastic condition. 6 former
owners, a summary of the most recent overhauls is detailed below, this all supported
in the documented file. I will be putting a fresh MOT on as soon as I have a buyer.

The values on these are cars are climbing, as such its a very safe place to physically

unlikely to ever pass another one.
