Just seen this image while browsing google images.



I've seen a few pics that are obviously rendered models but this looks like a photo, all be it a scan of a paper or mag.

Dare I say from that angle that the rear looks a bit like a Seat Leon:eek:
But no doubt the Alfa will look better:)

Don't think that's real, just looks like a bit of photoshoppery extrapolated from the 8C concept press release photos. And I hope the front doesn't look like that :vomit:

Too vulgar.

It's definitly a photoshop using the original 8C publicity photos from a couple of Years ago.

I am with GD on this one though...I think it looks bloody horrible and completely out of proportion. I can see most of the Alfa range taking styling cues from the 8C over the next couple of years though:(

this is a shot from AutoExpress

I'm in two minds

having said that I saw the Spider ad the other day and thought it looked sensational - and I wasn't sure about the execution of that at first

the 147 never got better than launch, did it

the restyled (last gen) Spider and GTV was a botch job

the 156 revamp was a bit half-baked in concept, though well executed


i need to see this on the road

I'm sure if it's due for Q4 release then the design is all but completed. It's a good job I'm too tight to buy a new car otherwise I'd be holding off my purchase until release.

so....the smallest car will be the Alfa Racer (based on the Punto)...I've heard it called "junior" elsewhere

then the 149 (if they call it that).......on a unique platform

and the 169 will have RWD

Here's some info on it saying it won't be built on the Bravo platform, it says towards the bottom of the article

That to me makes no sense whatsoever. I think a bit of creative journalism.

The 169 will be RWD because it uses the same platform (and other bits?) of the new Maserati Quattroporte.

the pic of teh silver 149 is rotten, really horrible revision of teh 147 imo, it may grow on me but i doubt it. at least the one more 8c styled is nice if a little vulgar imo
