Looks to me like the soft cover used to cover the soft top when it is retracted and stowed away. No big mystery, really ! When you have the hard top off, and fold back the top, this snaps across the folded top to keep things tidy and dust free. Also stops fading of the inner surface of the top when left in the folded position. Often missing from cars, so nice to still have it !

Agree on both accounts, cover for folded soft top and I haven't got one either. :-(

Definitely a boot cover.

Dont think that its from an Alfa Spider though.

The later Veloce Spiders came with this cover.

Earlier and non Veloce came with this cover

Unfortunately, yours does not look like the one for your model.

Both the above will fit your model and they come up every once in a while or you can buy new at the usual suppliers.

Good luck,

Vin

Thanks all, I was also thinking soft-top cover, but dont see how the wings fit? The wings are stiff plastic backed so cant be folded out of the way. It has it's hard top on now so cant do a trial fit. The soft top covers, I've seen on other Spiders, are completely flexible without the ridged wings...hope this info helps!
Thanks

Paul,

The Veloce style also has the rigid wings.

I dont think yours is going to work.

I do like the cover though and use it often. With the top down, its gives a refined, finished look.

Good luck,

Vin

like Vin says, to me it doesn't look like its for an alfa spider. Unless it is some PO custom made boot cover.
