Re: Alfas on Top Gear - this is sweet

excellent, and i agree big respect for the narration.

Can almost see the spider transmitting the first seeds of acquired Alfa Romeo disorder to the kids.

I forsee them shopping for their first car and being inexplicably drawn to an old 147.......

Re: Alfas on Top Gear - this is sweet

There is a mini article in the latest Top Gear magazine. It starts by saying that you can't call yourself a true petrol head if you have never owned an Alfa Romeo. Nice!

Re: Alfas on Top Gear - this is sweet

If you watched the first episode of the latest series last night carefully you would have glimpsed two Alfas.

When they drove up to the workshop in their Fiat Coupe/Lexus 400/Vitara..there was an early Alfa Spider parked with its nose sticking out by the workshop door. Also in the clips from the series to come I'm sure I saw a GTV being crashed into at the rear on the Top Gear test track at Dunsfold. Hmmmmmm

wait and see I suppose. Hope its not two weeks time..i'm abroad then.

Re: Alfas on Top Gear - this is sweet

I am pretty sure that the 75 gets smashed up. I would guess that the spider and GTV do as well. Not so good.

I made it 4 - wasn't there also a red Brera parked at the end of the road near the workshop where the old Spider was? Blimey, I'm sad.

I'm even sadder as I spotted a fifth lol!!! In the queue when they were clearing the road traffic accident was a black Brera I believe. I really think we need to get a life. I'm off to get one. Catch ya later
