Full of rubbish that, they've even used Autodelta images in there, obviously their own cars weren't good enough.
And what was wrong with the 164?....well regarded in its day with its own engines and looking nothing like the platform sisters.
Load of crap if you ask me, aimed at investors.
Expect more UV's in there and a 300C platform share.
agree - we've seen this kind of thing before and usually turn out to be ****e.
find it hard to believe we're going to see a 300+ bhp 4 cylinder or 550~600bhp 6 cylinder production car any time soon. Sure we know it is possible if you bolt on a big enough turbo, Ralliart proved that with the Lancer but turning that into a refined enough driving product that can last a couple of hundred thousand miles with sensible servicing and running costs, can't see it happening, I doubt there is the demand for it that would warrant such cost.
Personally I think Alfa as a brand are struggling only offering a couple of cheapy hatch backs and trying hard to plug an overly expensive alternative to an Elise.
Think back to 2005 when you could have had:
8C (coupe or Spider)
156 (albeit end of production stuff)
all in production around the same time - fair enough the 156 had ended and 159/Brera/Spider just beginning really but that is still a fair handsome range of vehicles you've got there. Everything from a seriously hot hatch 147 to something you can get the dog in 159SW.
Feels to me like we've fallen a long way since those days.
