Ah, didn't look at the link, the chap who was makingit for a show is a member on here, I know he had a couple of other projects that had pushed it out of the picture and it must be taking up space in his shop.

Pity, although Ir eckon it'd need some work on the rear arches to balance the car out, but would look aweseom once finished.

Re: Alfa 156 with Brera front....

Looks messy. It has a really wide front end...

Good effort but I can help thinking......


Maybe some rear GTA arches and bumper would sort it out...

Not an Alfa :-(

Re: Alfa 156 with Brera front....

Ummm....

I am undecided, it looks ok but will never be as pretty as a Brera.

Re: Alfa 156 with Brera front....

If you look at the lower part of the bumper, the air intake isn't fully open like it is on the 159

I think you're right, wider rear arches would balance it

Re: Alfa 156 with Brera front....

I don't like this hybrid Alfa ... In my opinion an Alfa Romeo must be original ... ok if you wish you can do some make up on your Alfa , but this is too much !!!

Re: Alfa 156 with Brera front....

I think this is looking pretty cool. a Brera front end with the cleaner rear end of the 156.. the 156 hidden rear door latches still looks ahead of its time.

Needs the rear arches flaring, or as suggested, GTA arches/rear bumper.

Other than that, looks cool

Some people ask why? I prefer to ask why not?

Re: Alfa 156 with Brera front....

The point is that it's different and TASTEFULLY DONE, not like those continental morons that think every car should have an anime comic painted down the side.

Reminds me of that Honda Civic with a BMW 5 series front end that was posted on here recently ...

Re: Alfa 156 with Brera front....

it may well be tastefully done, but as someone earlier said it looks like a cut'n'shut, and really is no better than a custom job. If they'd put a 156 front at least they would be able to sell it!

Re: Alfa 156 with Brera front....

Fair play for having a go, it's been well done by the looks of it. BUT, I'm not a fan, those front arches are too wide.
I feel sorry for the guy, he's obviously spent a lot of time and money which will go to waste.
