Re: Alfa "Junior": your chance to choose a proper name

Plus it looks like you have to be resident in Italy. Which means I can't vote for 'Junior'.

Nice idea, though - same way they named the old Spider 'Duetto', isn't it?

Be nice if it did have a proper name, something evocatively Italian

Interesting the 'Briefing' is the same in Italian as English

Re: Alfa "Junior": your chance to choose a proper name

I think the Italian speakers have a distinct advantage here. I have spent a while playing with babel fish - but it's impossible for a non-native Italian speaker to appreciate all the subtle connotations associated with any Italian word.

Re: Alfa "Junior": your chance to choose a proper name

I have an advantage in that I speak Italian.

I have a disadvantage in having a poor imagination!

Perhaps we should team up?

Nada at the mo!!

Re: Alfa "Junior": your chance to choose a proper name

Alfa Corsu was my bid.

Is the name of the old (and dying out) Corsican dialect which is quintessentially Italian.

And yes I know Corsica is part of France before you remind me!!!

Re: Alfa "Junior": your chance to choose a proper name

Well considering that it will be just another Hatch, then Alfa Hatch seems like a 'good' name

This is rumoured to be very close to the real thing
Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3

However either Junior or Alfa 4c would be ok or even a return of the Alfetta name


139-?
149-Guilietta
159-Guilia
169-?

Remember it is an Alfa Romeo and I have yet to see an Alfa Romeo that looks as good in a Photo as it does right there in front of you in 'real life'
