As long as Paul is confined to the couch, might as well. To me this is the stereotypically classic Alfa, altho certainly not the only classic.

I'm a vintage Alfa fan. Y'all have posted two that I raced.

But there's nothing wrong with an Alfa SUV, in theory. And nothing apparently wrong with the Stelvio, in practice. I'd consider one, if I were in the market for such a toy.

It's called 'adaptation'. Either embrace it... or potentially lose the marque entirely.

Spica was both a boon and a bane, Made for a smooth running and powerful car, but was too easy to muck up and turn into a rough running and powerless car.

I am more of a Lancia fan myself, but there is nothing like the styling of ANY Italian car. The houses just knew how to make anything drop dead gorgeous

My complaint about the fuel injection was kind of picky, I didn't like the way it started compared to Webers. The Weber engines exploded to life as soon as you touched the starter. The injection had to grind a bit to get fuel there.

My complaint about the schnoz is that it is - as many vehicles are these days - too aggressive/macho. My only other complaint is more about concept/packaging. Is it really A SUV when the roof slopes down so snugly? Looks more like a 'hot hatch'.https://www.astra-arona.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/21/2018/04/alfa-romeo-stelvio-1200x495.jpg

Dad had an Alfa Sud 1.3 ti. Red. Did rust away. I do remember taking the 'back roads' to Southampton at the weekends and he'd get the wheels screetching around the patch of twisties near Beaulieu. I think his only regret was not buying a Lotus Elan instead at the time, but needed 4 seats for kids.

I came up behind one of these, a Giulia Quadrifoglio Supersprint the other day, on a particularly nice climbing stretch of twisties that I like. I was on the bike and it was working... and the Alfa driver didn't like it. He dropped back a couple of gears and floored it. Delightful noise, stunning acceleration.... but it didn't do him any good. There was an SUV in front... we came around the corner, there was a short overtaking stretch and I had them both. Didn't see him again.

This is our exact alfa which we had in the late 60s. Was hand built at factory but the alfa engineers done with hand rubbed red lacquar- serial #4. Send to my father after the photo shoot who raced it in 1967-8 in many of the Panamerica races competing against 912s, MGs and Truimphs.

Our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 little kids) all stuffed into it with luggage and drove from the port of New Orleans to Philadephia non stop in a day 1968.

We've had Alfa cars here in NZ right through and still have now. They blew their market when they went FWD in my opinion, and the added perception that they are unreliable and expensive to fix doesn't help much. They depreciate like no other marque I can think of and are regarded as a mechanics friend. Hopefully thats changed with the latest models, which are great looking cars. I'd love a drive of a 4C.

But back to reality ,I like their GT and Brera from the early/mid 2000's. Some of those are AWD and with a well regarded generic V6 ( might be the Holden motor actually) But they always had less than great reviews for general performance and handling.

Still... Brera...... It even has a boat tail.

Re the Quadrifoglio that I mentioned the other day. It's about $180,000 here. Yes, one might expect some depreciation. It is, fortunately, rear wheel drive.... and it's got real grunt. This from Alfa:

This all-aluminium direct injection 90-degree 2.9L BiTurbo V6 engine is Alfa Romeo’s new benchmark. It generates an incredible best-in-class 375 kW and 600 Nm of torque, allowing it to launch from 0-100 km/h in a class-leading 3.9 seconds and achieve a best-in-class top speed of 307 km/h.

I doubt I'd line up to buy one. The new KIA Stinger is pretty much a copy.... for a third of the price.

Considering that there were so few of these built, the cost of making all the casting patterns and the hand machining work in the engine, together with all the other craftsman hand work in the rest of the car, they must have been horrendously expensive. I wonder how they'd compare with the current F1 cars if one worked out the relative values of the currencies over the time from then to now?

I expect much,much cheaper than they would be now.Currently there is a focus on chasing microscopic improvements and a huge number of variations get wind tunnel tested along the way.The three engines per year rule also means that a lot of dyno time is given to ensuring that the next version will perform better for longer.Just to keep the thread linked to Alfa,the Sauber does have quite a nice paint job.

Perhaps but there are probably a lot out there.
True enough, but have you seen the price of the rotarys, and even their conventional brethren? The humble Mazda 808 goes for as much as a good Kombi Van these days.

I hope you’re not implying the Mazda and Lancia look anywhere close to as good as the Bertone GTV.

Having seen both the alfa and the lancia up close and personal, the Alfa is a more muscular and settled looking beast. The Lancia is delicate in comparison. On the road, there is no such comparison. the alfa is as a sports coupe' should be, sure footed and powerful with power going aft to add a bit of wiggle to the hips under accelerating. The Lancia is front drive with an odd v4. It was equally sure footed on the road, but tended to scrabble as it pulled itself through corners. It made a decent rally car while the alfa was better on the track.

I would not kick either out of the garage for a bit of oil on the floor, but my heart goes to the Lancia as it is truly the last real one made as Fiat bought them out during the Fulvia's gestation

A couple more,one for road use and one for the tracks,the 182 is a particularly clean looking racer.

If it happens,I hope it is more successful than the example shown.Nice looking car-disappointing results.Of course it might just be a rerun of the scenario of the mid-eighties where Enzo Ferrari wheeled out an Indy car in the middle of negotiations for a new contract to participate in Formula 1.We know the current negotiations will see the Italians lose some of their advantages and income,so I hope it is apparent why I have some doubts about it actually resulting in a new car.

Anyway-back to Alfas that do exist.
