Alfa 159..best Colour?

There has been much discussion on what colour the stunning Alfa 159 wears best, I think it looks good in any colour but thought a poll on the subject might be interesting

I would say carbonio black, looks amazing when the light hits it. Only prob is that it gets dirty quick. Still worth it

Re: Alfa 159..best Colour?

I voted Red. Stromboli would be (and indeed was) my second choice

Re: Alfa 159..best Colour?

I think the stromboli Grey on Rosso's 159 looks amazing. If or when I buy a 159 it will definately be stromboli. IMO it makes the car look classy yet still sporty. I love it in black but don't think it shows off the shape as good as the stromboli.

Re: Alfa 159..best Colour?

I voted Stromboli grey, most people that order from us want Carbonio black, in fact it must be over 50% but when I order for stock I order Stromboli grey & Carbonio black, I ordered some Oltremare blue when the 159 first came out and for some reason we found them really hard to sell. Colour and specification is so important to the future value of an Alfa, more so than any other brand in my opinion.

Re: Alfa 159..best Colour?

Am awaiting delivery of my 159 SW in Stromboli Grey. I was looking for a car in stock and other choice was black, which I think looks good but I think obscures the lines of the 159. My favourtie colour is Oltremare blue, which I think is very classy but not usually in stock for reason Autolusso gives. Natural leather interior in any of them is best IMO. Delivery on 15th Feb - missus thinks I've ordered a Volvo!

Re: Alfa 159..best Colour?

From the poll so far it looks as if Alfa got its choice of colours for the 159 Ti spot on as the 3 most popular colours are Alfa Red, Black and Stromboli Grey. My personal preference of Aurora Blu seems just that at the minute

Re: Alfa 159..best Colour?

Rubino - the classiest by far. The sheen on the car is terrific.

Like black but it's too common and too difficult to keep.

Black looks the muts nuts as long as it is cleaned on a regular basis.

Re: Alfa 159..best Colour?

I am glad to see my view that Stromboli Grey is a very good colour on the 159 is being upheld by the poll so far and not surprised its followed by Alfa Red and Black. Surprised my personal preference of Aurora Blu is not featuring as I really like this colour on the 159. My top three would be Aurora Blu, Stromboli Grey and Rubino Red
