Brazilian Feeling

Hello everyone!

I'm form Brazil and just recently I have become a crazy fan of Alfas. I bougth my first Alfa six months ago and I in love for that car.

I drive a black 147 Selespeed 2.0TS.

As a good Brazilian, I love football and I'm a fan of the biggest Brazilian football team, the all migth CORINTHIANS!!!!!

Cheers!

Re: Brazilian Feeling

Bemvindo Slemian. There are a few Brazilians around, including myself. This is a great site, and you'll enjoy it.

Although I've always liked the Alfas, especially for the design, the 156 is the first Alfa I've owned. It was a typical case of love at first sight.

Re: Brazilian Feeling

Welcome, Slemian. Tudo bem? You don't see too many Alfas in Brazil, but I did see a 164 3.0 in Parati some years ago. It was exactly the same as my own car at the time - even the colour was the same! There should be a good market there for Alfas, although I know that foreign-built cars are heavily taxed.

Re: Brazilian Feeling

Hey Aldabaz,

You are right, unfortunately Brazil taxes the imported cars in a crazy way, just to have an idea a new Alfa 147 2.0TS is being sold in Brazil for Euro 44 thousand!!! I think this is almost the double than in Europe.

Another issue for not having too many Alfas in Brazil is that, for some mysterious reason Alfa Romeo just imports 55 cars per year. Therefore, in big cities like Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro you will find (with some difficult) some 145, 156 and a few 147 but you won't find many around. That's a shame!

Well, at least when you drive an Alfa in Brazil you got that feeling of exclusivity since everyone in the streets (even BMW and Mercedes owners) come to talk to you about your Alfa. That's very nice.

Cheers!
