Alfas on TV or in the Movies.....

Ok.. don't know if this has been doen before, but just want to start a thread of Alfas on TV or movies..... I'll start with two obvious 'Bond' ones:


Octopussy : GTV6 : YouTube - Alfa Romeo GTV6 In movie Octopussy (James Bond)

Quantum of Solace : 159 : YouTube - Quantum of Solace car chase (full scene)


EDIT: Great ad:: 156 ad : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePjq6MqNOdo



Cheers,
CHerb

Don't be sorry I just remember seeing a few in the past & only mentioned them if you wanted to find more TV/film Alfa appearances

Saw "Angels & Demons" earlier, a few Black 159s in that At night though so you don't see much except the shiny grills

Sorry to come down a bit from these hollywood films but ive noticed that Emmerdale(which i dont watch, i promise) has a couple of Alfas, a black MITO and a red SPIDER. Keeping the Alfa badge in the front of the minds of all those who watch it.

Guillietta if I remember correctly. There are some great sequences that were deleted where they were on an ice rink, I amsure it must be on utube.

I took this screen shot from a programme about Spaghetti junction. The Alfa was the first car shown going onto the new road after the tape was cut.
