About Roadster Salon


Since 1999. Roadster Salon has been the Premier restorer of Fiat / Pininfarina spiders in the US. Typically. our cars are built to order from our selection of donor inventory. Each car is lovingly restored to a high standard. faithful to the original example. Customers may select options to tailor their car to specific tastes.


Further details about Roadster Salon Classic Convertible Recreations can be reviewed on our web site. The build process generally takes 12-16 weeks. and there is currently a waiting list. Consequently. nearly all our cars are built to order. and only a scant few are available for sale each year to the general public that were not pre-ordered.


To our knowledge. Roadster Salon currently maintains the largest selection of Fiat and Pininfarina chassis' ready for restoration in the North America (and possibly the World). Please contact us about your interest in a project more custom tailored to your specific needs.

Our full cosmetic and mechanical restoration process is currently being undertaken. and the end result will be simply stunning. Detailed information about what this process entails can be found on our web site.


The leather upgrade package features premium leather seats and head rests. leather door panels. pulls. accents. and leather rear wings. In keeping with the original theme. vintage premium German loop carpets are included. The signature Rosso Corsa Ferrari exterior color. with tan caprone leather is one of the most popular combinations ever offered on this model. Other color options can be screened on our web site.


Cosmetic Impressions


Every Roadster Salon car is completely disassembled prior to paint. Body lines are taught. and new metal is used to repair any imperfections. Bead blasting is standard practice on cars without original paint. All are carefully blocked and sanded to a show quality finish. then wet sanded and buffed before being re-assembled. The color combination is ideal for warm climates.


We can't say enough about the leather interior upgrade. All key surfaces were covered by hand with premum  leather--cut from the same hyde. No color match issues. Workmanship in Ferrari-Maseratti territory. Bellissimo. Car has an optional leather rear seat available which can be added for an upcharge. Standard seat is vinyl. Hand sewn leather dash and center console is also available.


Mechanical and Driving Impressions


It is a joy to drive a fully sorted classic Italian convertible. Panel fitment is better than when the car came out of the factory. Engine. transmission and suspension are crisp and tight. A custom made contemporary air conditoning system with redesigned heat and ventillation is an available option.  


While all Roadster Salon cars are held to a rigid mechanical standard. note this particular car has the engine out full rebuild option.


Our goal is not to build a $100K trailer queen. but rather a car that can be casually enjoyed when ever the passion arises. In that regard. our stirring recreations exceed all reasonable expectations. 10/10.



Roadster salon carefully hand crafts about 30 cars per year. detailed to the specifications of each customer. There recently has been a huge upswing in the classic car market for vintage spiders. with recent sales nearing $50. 00 for special interest models.


However. It is important to note that restored automobiles in general should be built for the love and enjoyment of their owners. They are not hugely profitable endeavors--for the builder or reseller. To value a Roadster Salon Spider along side a used Fiat--or measure by a "car guide" is to miss the point of the car entirely.


Considering the quality. workmanship. and warranty. Roadster Salon Spiders are one of the great values in the market today.



What is a Spider Basso?



Firstly. our Spider restorations typically fall into two categories. Basso. and Avanzato (basic and advanced) Roadster Salon carefully selects candidates for restoration that are already in good overall condition. and meet our critical standards. Cars that require complete top to bottom rehabilitation are set aside for parts use only. Spider Basso models are re-painted in their original color. due to the cost of a proper color change.


All Roadster Salon cars are fully disassembled before paint. Interiors are refurbished. including new upholstery. carpets. door panels and console. A new convertible top is professionally installed.


Please see our web site for a complete list of mechanical items addressed in Basso models. Wear items like tires. brakes. and shocks are always replaced. Other key items inspected and repaired/replaced are fuel system. cooling system. suspension. transmission. timing belt. and engine gaskets and seals. Engine compartments are tidy. but not detailed to Avanzato standards. The Avanzato model has many additional features standard that are optional on the Basso mode. The Avanzato starts at $39. 90.

About Us



Roadster Salon
Classic Convertible Recreations

About Us


Pininfarina designed automobiles have been described as rolling works of art. Like a conservator who restores a classic painting to its original splendor—our artisans take forgotten. road weary Spiders. and return them to a time when they were loved and enjoyed. Our spiders are hand crafted by a team of certified Ferrari mechanics and Italian car specialist. Every chassis is thoroughly screened. refurbished and tested---so that new memories can be built confidently with the turn of a key. Roadster Salon recreates memories of our youth. Simpler times of sunny days. wind in our hair. troubles left behind and a curvy road ahead.

Roadster Salon spiders are the evolution of a classic ideal. built to be enjoyed whenever the passion arises. Our intention is not to make a brand new car. Even our most ambitious projects do not change every nut and bolt. We seek to restore beauty. improve reliability. and retain practicality. Roadster Salon Spiders are meant to be driven and enjoyed. not just shipped from show to show.


We currently offer four models intended to fit the needs of most customers. From the austere Classico. the high value Basso. premium Avanzato model. to the exotic Ultimo--each package offers superior value for the dollar. Every car can be built to suit the needs and tastes of individual clients. New offerings like the Lusso package and Spider Corsa provide even further inspiration. Custom features. options and color selections are yours to decide. The process is interactive. You dream it. we build it.




LUXURY AUTO GROUP/ Internet remarketing solutions

Buying a car at a dealership can be daunting. High pressure salespeople.
Limited selection. Adversarial negotiations. Not much fun.

But buying a car on the internet has its own unique challenges. The most
obvious concern is an online shopper's inability to test drive and evaluate
the car in person. While internet pricing can be attractive. some feel that
the unknowns outweigh the benefits. Horror stories about flawed vehicle
histories. incomplete documentation. misrepresentations. selective
disclosure. and title problems make many potential buyers cringe.

staff is your eyes and ears. We are marketing company representing
our own inventory. sourced from some of the finest luxury car dealers in Chicago. Our commitment to complete customer satisfaction is


Internet Marketing Philosophy

In our changing marketplace. internet sales have become a vital component to
every dealer's sales profile. The internet provides us with a low cost venue
to sell select inventory at near wholesale prices without compromising the
resources of a dealer's retail sales operation.

Internet car sales can take several forms. such as online classifieds and
auctions. The most popular. and arguably the most challenging. is Internet
sales. Our listings are generally offered on-line between five and ten day
time frames.

We have represented over 1000 fine automobiles on the
internet during the past ten years. The vast majority of these vehicles
were sold without the buyer seeing the vehicle prior to his commitment. How
was this possible? Our success can be directly attributed to our unique
ability to evaluate inventory with consistency. insight and professionalism.
This talent extends beyond our hands on assessment of a vehicles cosmetic
and mechanical condition. It also includes our research of various data
bases to determine past road history and service records. More than half of
the vehicles we are asked to represent are rejected immediately because of
obvious defects or concerns. An additional percentage fails to make the
final cut following our research history.

Our company randomly collects/studies data from past internet transactions. We
have surveyed customers about their online experiences. Direct interviews
and focus data are also compiled in an effort to better understand the
Internet consumer. We have worked tirelessly to upgrade and improve our
services. from the way our vehicles are screened and selected for Internet
sale. to delivery and aftercare procedures. The lessons learned are
insightfully applied to our Internet Marketing Program.

Only the most fully sorted pre-owned vehicles in our inventory are presented
through our Internet marketing program.

In conclusion. regardless of venue. it all comes down to the quality of the
inventory represented. While cliché. you can never pay too much for a great
car. It also follows that a bargain price does not assure satisfaction.

Luxury Auto Group knows the difference.
