Another 169 Image

Damn I'm getting so eager to see the 169 in the flesh, I'm tempted to photochop something just to satisfy my desires

I always have a browse over the weekend, see if i can spot a new image, this one smells of merc/bmw as soon as i looked at it but it's growing on me, kind of.... not so sure i'm liking the way the lights are looking.

I'm actually a bit undecided on it, looks a bit too much like a Chrysler of some sort IMO.

Re: Another 169 Image

Bit OTT to me.

I think the problem with the 169 is that it is going to be priced way high. Will it suffer the same depreciation as the 166?

I think it looks like a Cadillac. Not good.

Re: Another 169 Image

This image was done for Autocar,based on whatever information they had at the time,so the car may not look anything like this at all.....................or it might!

Re: Another 169 Image

Like many Alfas it will grow on you. I bet when you see one in the metal, say in a dark metallic colour, it will be drop-dead gorgeous.

Imagine it also with the V8 from the 8C (have you heard that thing?!) and the promised rear wheel drive. If they get it right I can see Alfisti all over the country selling their houses to buy one.

This was posted before. Bit too Merc-like for my taste.

Stunning. Alfa are going to have such a great range by the end of the decade. There'll be more Alfas everywhere. Not sure if I want that - I like the exclusivity!

They only want to double there sales, seeing one brera a fortnight instead of every month is not too bad

Re: Another 169 Image

C'mon guys, the car's at least two years away. How accurate is a rendering going to be at this stage? It's just journo's checking out current trends and shapes and trying to apply it to a particular marque.

Not worth commenting on.

Just found this:

hummm, guessing that this is the 169 as it has a 4.2 from Maserati, and a 3 litre diesel (which I believe FIAT are currently developing) but cant read it, maybe someone can translate?

I like the look of that, but the Italian about the engine says a Maserati-derived 4.7, a 3 litre diesel developed by FIAT, a 3.2 V6 and a 1800cc turbo.
