Alfa Romeo will show three new models at the 2010 Geneva Auto Show in March, in addition to the hotly anticipated new Giulietta

Each of the Turin design houses — Stile Bertone, Pininfarina and Italdesign Giugiaro — will create a version of the new midsize model to be shown at their respective stands." The expected breakdown will see Bertone creating the two-door coupe body, Pininfarina the convertible, and Italdesign Giugiaro the four-door sedan breadwinner.

Bring on march! :thumbs:

Interesting but not surprising. There's so much that's good about the 159 that Alfa really have the opportunity to create a great car from it. Pokey multiair engine, lighter with refreshed body designs and they could have a real winner. It's a good car now but not good enough to tempt me away from the GTA (nor is the Brera). A new Bertone coupe might be....

Cheers,

Nigel

As I figured this out... those arent the picture of the 2010 Geneva cars... They are about to be presented.

Those are just 159 and a GT. Beautiful though :)

Just read something about this on Autoblog ...

to quote them ...

"Following up on a model as achingly gorgeous as the Alfa Romeo 159 – to say nothing of its Brera coupe and Spider convertible counterparts – is no mean feat. Which could be why Alfa is turning to the considerable pool of talent at its doorstep. According to the latest reports, three Italian design houses will be displaying their ideas of what the next-gen mid-size Alfa should look like.

If the source quoted by Inside Line proves accurate, at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March, Stile Bertone will show off a two-door coupe, with a Pininfarina-penned convertible and an ItalDesign Giugiaro four-door sedan sharing the stage as potential candidates to succeed the 159/Brera/Spider line-up. Meanwhile, Alfa Romeo will be taking the wraps off the new Giulietta at its own show stand.

It's worth noting that Giugiaro was responsible for the original concept car that spurred Alfa to put the Brera into production, and Pininfarina was responsible for the car's assembly. And with Bertone also in the mix, this is one fight we're looking forward to seeing unfold on the floor of the Geneva Palexpo."

It'll be interesting to see if they all have the same front end or if they've been seperately done by the 3 styling houses
