The Grad­u­ate, 1967

Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Movie Cars -

The last car to be signed off by Ital­ian de­sign mae­stro Bat­tista ‘Pinin’ Fa­rina, a ’66 series one Alfa Spi­der didn’t just shut­tle Dustin Hoff­man’s char­ac­ter Ben­jamin be­tween ex­is­ten­tial crises, it sym­bol­ised Six­ties Amer­ica’s youth­ful hunger for free­dom, sex and stick­ing it to The Man. Much as that dream would be scup­pered by the Viet­nam war, so would the lis­som lit­tle Alfa run out of fuel at the crit­i­cal mo­ment in the film’s de­noue­ment.
