Re: 159 Gta
Oh dear. Week-in, week out, I scour the Interweb for news that this car is actually on its way. Sadly, I deserted the Alfa fold back in January when it was time to upgrade the GT - there was simply nothing in the Alfa showroom at the time that really excited me (beyond my inherent and unshakeable love of the marque) and despite the slimming programme the 159 and Brera have been on, that remains the case today.
I so want to come back and every time I see a 159, partic a V6 Ti Sportwagon, I find myself wishing I'd taken one, bunged a Novitec supercharger, coilovers and brake upgrade on it and carried on loving my Alfas.
Instead I worked my way down to the next manufacturer on the list and have been driving an Audi S5 for the past 8 months. Astonishingly capable car, but with none of the Alfa soul that I crave.
I haven't given up hope on the GTA front - but the point above is well made - would Alfa really invest in what would end up being such a niche model? Hard to see the beanies would sanction it........
Any idea how I add a signature?
