Re: Poll: Greatest Alfa Romeo Model Of All Time
I'd agree with most of alfatastic's points, I think, and a lot of what Selespeed said too.
Good thread, it's interesting to see other views. Be good if people could maybe score their choice against Kalel's criteria?
For instance, the 916 GTV would likely score highly for styling and performance, but I'm not sure there's anything much innovative about it. And although mine has been reliable (touch wood) I think there are enough common niggles (suspension, intermittent wipers, MAF, door seals, etc.) that build quality can't be a desperately high score either, so I don't think it can be close to "greatest ever".
The 8C Competizione seems to tick most of the boxes (accepting that we don't know about reliability, etc.) but is it innovative? Or does it score highly enough in the other categories that it doesn't matter?
I don't know what I'd choose. My gut feel is that it is likely to be from the pre-Fiat days.
