Re: Cloverleafs are back!!!

Nice find Kevin
think it might do rather well,
would be interested in the turning circle,
our last CL/LF. was awful.

They should have stuck with the Ducati Corse, nothing wrong with that.

Re: Cloverleafs are back!!!

I always thought you put a cloverleaf on an Alfa to bring you luck...luck that it may go

and wow another 'hot' diesel...something we are all drooing about...or rather those who as a child never got to drive a tractor
Actually my father has petrol tractors as for much of our farming work, a diesel used to leave you in clouds of smoke!!
In reality just another thing to remove from your car if you cannot afford a nice 'petrol' drive

I agree another limited edition run - but they look good (particularly the GT).

Re: Cloverleafs are back!!!

I suppose they're trying to keep sales volumes going until the Junior Furiosa comes along... then the '49.. but as long as they're interesting and sell.. it doesn't matter too much.

Re: Cloverleafs are back!!!

Wonder if the green Cloverleaf badges will turn blue like the ones on my two old 145s did?

the link is from italiaspeed.com so they probably wont be getting released at all.

yes i'm a cynical *****, but when you've been let down so many times you have doubts.

google "147 qv" and there are no credible sources.

Got to agree with you there...cynical marketing exercise for two models coming to the end of their production runs....

Re: Cloverleafs are back!!!

cloverleafs on diesels sure fire way to devalue the marque, yet another limited edition to flog the last few of an old and outdated model.

I'm with you on that one Al
Anyone else spot the reference to a "146 Cloverleaf" Doesn't do much for the credability of the source.

Yet another limited edition to extend the 147's life

We need a 149 now, actually about 2 years ago.
