If you have ever driven one, you wouldn't have said this wink

The sound, the speed, the sound, the drive and did I mention the sound already? are so great and give you a smile from ear to ear
IMHO it is far better than a modern Ferrari

In the interview they asked me how common Alfa is in The Netherlands. I have done some research about the 147 and 156:

Salesnumbers:
Alfa 147: 7,700 sold since introduction (3,482 so far this year)
Alfa 156: 21,814 sold since introduction (1,915 so far this year)

Your brother's car is great, really great !!!!
Must say that I generally dislike Ferrari (oups sorry...)except the 250 GTO and the Daytona.

For me, the greatest sport cars are the Lamborghini !
When you see a lambo near a Ferrari, you understand that Ferraris are just scale models for children......

Oiii, I'll get some enemies......

And I'll go further......my favourite "accessible" car is the Porsche 911 (RS 2.7, Turbo or better, Speedster turbo look).
Yes, a German car !!!!
One of the first names of my older son is "Ferry" ( ...and the youngest one has "Ayrton" as one of his first names).

But I'll never echxange my 147 for a Porsche....I will get both !

Fantastic! Ayrton! Damn, the best driver ever......IMHO wink About the Lambo, I'd prefer a Murcielago above ANY Ferrari. And about the Porsche.....it's been my boy dream car since I was born........

Johnny,

My brother and I both used to like Lamborghini´s more then Ferrari´s. But a couple of years ago when my brother bought his first Ferrari, he was actually looking for a Lamborghini. The Espada was his all time favorit. But there was a big disappointment waiting for him: he doesn´t fit in the Espada.

An other reason to prefer a ferrari over a lambo is the reliability and running costs. As you probably know buying a classic italian sportscar is easy on your wallet if you compare that to the costs of maintenance.

Selespeed

BTW My all time favorit is the Miura
